Published Nov 19, 2018In the wake of Steve Aoki's hit single with K-pop sensations BTS, they have now dropped an official video for their team-up "Waste It on Me."
As you'll witness, the clip goes big in all the right ways, enlisting comedian Ken Jeong to star alongside Devon Aoki, Ross Butler, Ben Baller and Jamie Chung, among other notable faces. The video has also been directed by Linkin Park's Joe Hahn.
Not to spoil the entire plot for you, but the "Waste It on Me" video features one hell of a lip sync battle and one well-worth the watch. It's also a video that features an entirely Asian-American cast.
"When I found out that 'Waste It on Me' was the number one song in the world on Apple Music I realized that this track represented more than just me and BTS," Steve Aoki stated in a press release. "It's bigger than music and we hope to show other Asians they are also a part of the global commercial musical landscape. I feel so deeply about the Asian footprint in music culture that I wanted the music video to have an entirely Asian cast and director. The video tells the story of 'Waste It on Me' in an incredibly funny, witty, and clever manner."

"Waste It on Me" is featured on Aoki's new album Neon Future III, which is out now via Ultra Music/Dim Mak. In addition to BTS, the record also features the likes of Blink-182 and Bill Nye.
