Latto discuss her collaboration with Jung Kook
“Oh my gosh, we’ve actually been working on this, maybe a couple months. It literally has been so surreal witnessing his fanbase and how much they support him — it’s literally artist goals. I was so shocked. I’m like, “Are you sure you want me?” I felt so much pressure to do it, but I was like, “You know what? He reached out to me for a reason. Let me just go in there and do what I do best.” To see everybody’s reaction to my verse and how much they love it, it’s so fulfilling. Hopefully I get to go to Korea soon.” via People
