Steve Aoki Reveals He Wants to Work with CL and Monsta X



In a recent written interview with several Korean news outlets, DJ Steve Aoki expressed his admiration for the achievements of BTS and gratitude for the explosive success of his three collaborations with the group.


“I didn’t know the ‘MIC Drop’ remix version would do that well. I was really surprised at how much the BTS members have grown over the years. Their ‘Love Yourself’ tour was completely sold out. It’s a groundbreaking record that we’ll be able to look back on even 20 years later."


In the interview, Aoki also stated his strong desire to collaborate with more Kpop artists in the future, particularly mentioning his wish to work with rising 7-member group MONSTA X, who Aoki noted, have "phenomenal charm and production skills." MONSTA X's latest full album comeback with aggressive title track 'Shoot Out' has taken 1st place on music show broadcasts, with their music video amassing almost 18 million views on youtube in little more than a week.


”I want to work with MONSTA X and CL. From their social media accounts, MONSTA X’s charm and production skills are phenomenal. CL is one of my close friends and I’m also close to Big Bang’s Seungri. I would love to collaborate with other K-Pop artists next time.”

I think Aoki really knows how to create music with artists in a way that respects their own unique style. I'm a fan of both CL and Monsta X, so this idea has me excited.

Please do work with CL. Someone has to save her. She’s being landlocked by her company.

Does anyone feel like some of these western artists just want to collab with Kpop idols because kpop fans are much more engaging in terms of social media

Hmm, yeah, some of them, personally I don't get that vibe from Aoki, I think he genuinely likes to work with BTS and is fascinated by the KPOP community.

Not with Steve. If what he says is true about being good friends with Seungri and CL, then it makes sense to me. He was already VERY successful before the BTS collaboration

Yes he is. Guess he's appealing to a different audience than his normal EDM fans

IDK about this because Monsta X actually has really good music and I don't know if he's even familiar with working with that

Like, has he ever heard a good track before?

I dont' blame him for Mic Drop and Waste it On Me because BTS ruined that regardless, but they didn't make him look "talented" either

Collabs are just collabs. It would not ruin an artiste's style as a whole.

Aoki mentioned Bigbang's Seungri too so why allkpop u didn't mention him in your title? Anyways i am so proud and happy that Aoki even considered on working with our amazing boys Monsta X. To hear a western artists dreaming to collab with them instead of the other way round, it just shows that little by little, monsta x is gaining recognition thanks to their personalities and talents. If they were ever to collab, i would support them regardless. This statement right here is my fav part👇

well well..


Why not less popular groups tho.. There are others with good music too.

It feels like he is going only with the trend, not the music.


Being Aoki, I am 50_50 , if he is genuinely liking Korean artists or the easy to catch fans.

Monsta X isn't that popular though. Tbh, I was kinda surprised he mentioned them. I like many of their songs, but their fanbase skews older so they don't get a lot of clicks on their stuff - at least not when compared to NCT, Got7, IKON etc.

If that is your opinion, then i guess you just confirmed the OP's statement is wrong when she said aoki only goes for the trend and popularity. In your point of view, it would be better for aoki to collab with more popular groups like got7,ikon etc but then that just meant u would rather Aoki to collab based on popularity. If that was the case, then we could just say Steve Aoki is trying to have clout of someone else's fame and then their music will mean nothing. But this is not the case for Aoki since he looked at talents over popularity. He himself said monsta x' charm and production skills are phenomenal so basically he just want music of pure quality, not popularity
