Tiger JK recently released the final Drunken Tiger album, essentially closing off a 10-year chapter of music making. The final album features many famous names from Yoon Mirae and Bizzy, to Dok2, SEVENTEEN‘s Vernon and BTS‘ RM.
The latter’s collaboration, “Timeless”, reached No.1 on the US iTunes Chart on release and No.3 worldwide. While talking about the album on Korean radio, Tiger JK talked briefly about getting on the charts.
“Thanks to BTS’ RM, I was able to achieve No.1 in the United States and No.3 worldwide… I want to produce songs that are irrelevant to the charts. [Drunken Tiger] fans don’t think it’s cool to be on the charts. They actually think that it’s cooler if you’re not tied down to [the charts].” He laughed as he continued to say, “But as soon as my latest song was released, it didn’t rise on the domestic music charts, so I was a little sad”.
The rapper also tweeted his appreciation for RM’s involvement on the song.
Listen to “Timeless” below.
