Now, netizens are speculating that Jungkook is also working with Australian rapper The Kid LAROI.
When HYBE and Ithaca Holdings merged, The Kid LAROI technically became a labelmate to BTS as BIGHIT MUSIC is under HYBE, too. At the time, founder Bang Si Hyuk (also known as Bang PD or Hitman Bang) posted a photo with the music artist holding a sign that read, “LET LAROI DROP STAY!”
Since then, The Kid LAROI released his hit song “STAY” with Justin Bieber. Jungkook has even covered it during a live broadcast. Now, The Kid LAROI has resurfaced the clip of Jungkook singing along to his song. He posted it via Instagram Stories with the heart fingers, teary-eyed, and “SOON” emojis.
THE KID LAROI shared a video of Jungkook singing “Stay” (Jungkook’s live from 2021) on his Instagram Story with caption:
