As K-pop’s… well… popularity has grown in the US, it’s been no surprise to see some of Korea’s biggest stars linking up with rappers. After all, K-pop takes a lot of inspiration from hip-hop; the crossover of audiences can also be mutually beneficial, with the K-pop stars benefiting from rappers’ stateside fanbase and rappers getting to see some more international support.
The latest rapper to jump on the K-pop collab trend looks to be Jack Harlow, has begun teasing a collaboration with BTS member Jung Kook. The Korean singer’s label, HYBE, also shared a teaser of the music video, which appears to have been shot in Harlow’s hometown, Louisville, Kentucky. You can check that out above.

Cole, for “On The Street.”
