BTS's Suga Features On Juice WRLD's Posthumous Album 'Fighting Demons'
Suga of BTS will be participating in one of the songs of the upcoming posthumous album "Fighting Demons" by the late American rapper Juice WRLD. The album is scheduled to be released on December 10, a day that was the birthday of the rapper.
The full tracklist, which was dropped on December 9, showed that Suga will feature in the b side song "Girl of My Dreams. It will be the K-pop star's second collaboration with Juice WRLD.
Earlier, in June 2019, BTS members RM and Suga had done a collaboration with the rapper for the "BTS World" OST "All Night". The moderate tempo hip hop song, which was produced by RM, had a chill 90's vibe. It was the third single for the OST of "BTS World".
Juice WRLD, whose real name was Jarad Anthony Higgins, was an American songwriter, singer, and rapper from Chicago, Illinois. He is considered a leading figure in the SoundCloud rap and emo-rap genres, which got mainstream attention during the mid-late 2010s.
The rapper passed away at the very young age of 21 on December 8, 2019. "Legends Never Die", his first posthumous album released in 2020 made a debut at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200. He received the "Rap/Hip-Hop Male Artist" award, following his death, during last year's American Music Awards.
The song credits Suga as Suga from BTS and not Agust D, the latter is the name that the South Korean artist uses when dropping his own solo material. He has used Agust D earlier as well such as on the song "Suga's Interlude" from the "Manic" album by Halsey.
Juice WRLD's Twitter account posted the cover art and the tracklist for the set, including details about the musicians and the tracks for which they have received credit. The list includes well-known international artists such as Eminem, Justin Bieber, Trippie Red, Polo G, in addition to Suga.
"Fighting Demons" is the late rapper's second posthumous album. The artist reportedly left behind a lot of unreleased art, so much so that his estate will be giving it to fans for years to come.
It wouldn't be surprising to see Suga and JUICE WRLD feature on a number of Billboard charts in the days to come, based on how well "Legends Never Die" performed.
"Fighting Demons" is almost guaranteed to debut in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 after its first full tracking week passes, and the individual tracks could appear on many lists the same week.
