Jung Kook has teamed up with Justin Timberlake for a surprise remix of the BTS star’s hit song “3D.”
The new remix, which arrived Friday (Nov. 24), finds the superstar singers showcasing their impressive harmonies over a slick production with a retro mid-2000s hip-hop/dance vibe.
“Jung and JT on the main now/ You can still find me in a drop top/ With the top down but I got so many lanes now,” Timberlake sings on his verse. “Come with me, I’ll just call up the plane now/ Now let me fly you out to Seoul, Korea/ I Just wanna get into your soul like Aretha. I got the volume when you wanna get the beat up.”
The original version of “3D” featured rapper Jack Harlow and served as the opening track of Jung Kook’s first solo album, Golden. The set debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while the song peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The new remix with Timberlake arrives as Jung Kook prepares to enlist in the South Korean military. On Wednesday (Nov. 22), the K-pop singer took to Weverse to share a sweet message with BTS ARMY.
“In December, I will start a new journey I’m leaving you for a while to serve in the military,” he wrote. “As I share this news, I feel heavy on one hand, and on the other hand, I’m reminded of precious memories with ARMY, so my heart warms up. Every moment I’ve spent with you has been the brightest time of my life. ARMY’s laughter, support, and love led me to this point. Thank you so much for supporting my dream and walking with me silently.”
South Korean requires an 18-month military service stint for all able-bodied men by the time they turn 28. BTS announced a pause in their group work in October 2022 to allow all the singers to enlist. The group is expected to reconvene in 2025 when all have completed their duty to country.
