    I mean collaborations have always been that, this isn't a surprise. They both want to expand their markets

    Thank you for pointing out the obvious.

    I guess that was the point of it all in the first place

    Why is it ok for BP to use her to promote but not the other way around?

    the funny thing is that she has collaborated with BP but the only Korean song in her playlist is Fake Love..... :whatr:

    I mean, did people think she was doing this collaboration out of charity? Girl is on her way to being the biggest pop girl in UK/Europe and could maybe become even bigger with good management. She's looking out for her. BP should do the same in promoting themselves and currying favour with Dua's audience, especially since they all speak English etc. so they wouldn't even be plagued by too much exoticism and "that's just Kpop" as others, even BTS, would.

    I dont see how her collabing with BP will benefit her in Europe lol.
    If she wanted to get european fans, she should have collaborated with Little mix that actually sell venues here and have similar demo

    She already has a sizable fanbase in Europe was my point, I literally said she's already on her way to being the biggest pop girl in UK and Europe right now (and could become even bigger, perhaps I should have added "elsewhere" but I didn't think that was necessary). She doesn't need a Blackpink or even a Little Mix to help her in Europe, she's obvs had bigger hits there than both. The collaboration with BP is to open her up to the Korean/Asian audience, that's it. Don't know how useful it will end up being but that was likely the strategic thinking behind it on her part.

    I love how ARMYs are using this to turn it into 'obv our oppas are so important' yet BTS is on the very same boat in this case
    They're being used by artists that are actually relevant in the West so y'all give them some cash, it's a business move and it's clearly working really well.

    Shes had 2 hits in Europe , i think you should wait a bit with "on her way" of becoming biggest pop girl here lmao.
    So far Ariana is holding firmly on that title.
    but yeah ofc its strategic to get more fans in Asia, its just funny how she used BTS and not BP song.
    i mean, you gotta admit thats funny lol

    It makes them both tbh. The thing is that because BTS is big in US doesn't mean they are the only popular ones. I think she is just trying to get a BTS collab with what she is doing now

    Dua Lipa is a horrible performer, she is boring as hell on stage and she has zero charisma, i dont know what is the rampage about her

    Lol, I guess everyone and their mother is using BTS for clout in some way or another. Reminds me of when 1D was a thing and everyone from the Empire State Building to iCarly to late night hosts was mentioning Harry or one of the other members for attention, and it almost always worked.

    Nothing new around here

    Now that I think about it she has a huge popularity in UK but not so much in the rest of Europe to be honest. The only hit I can name rn would be New rules, didn't hear much about her over here

    i saw some clips and she didn't really impress me.
    maybe she improves over the years shes still new. but i dont know, i was never really a fan of her in first place.
    her putting BTS on her playlist won't make me one either
