Rina Sawayama just dropped a huge Bangtan bomb on fans; she co-wrote a song with BTS‘s RM!
Rina Sawayama, a Japanese-born British singer-songwriter, met up with RM in 2018. The two took this photo together at The O2 in London, England, during BTS’s LOVE YOURSELF world tour. As mentioned in her tweet, Jungkook was suffering from a heel injury at the time, and he was unable to dance during the concert.

Ever since then, fans have been calling for a collaboration. Now, two years later, Rina Sawayama has revealed that the collab already happened.
“We’ve actually spoken,” she said. “We’ve written virtually together, which is sort of a bit top secret, but I don’t think anything happened to that song.”
The song isn’t coming out any time soon, but there might be a way to speed up the process. “Maybe if you guys pester him enough, he will work on it or something,” she joked. “I don’t know man, they’re just so busy that I’m, like, whatever it’s cool that you’re even a fan.”
