Steve Aoki Rolls Out WASTE IT ON ME (feat. BTS)'Remixes, Slushii Remix Out Now

Two-time Grammy-nominated DJ and Producer Steve Aoki embraces the holiday season by treating fans to a series of remixes for his Neon Future III hit single "Waste It On Me," featuring BTS. Starting today with a vibrant remix from Slushii, December sees new dancefloor reworkings drop from Cheat Codes (Dec 14), W&W (Dec 21) and Aoki himself on Christmas Day (Dec 25).

"Waste It On Me" is the third project Steve Aoki and BTS have collaborated on, following Aoki's RIAA certified gold remix of BTS' "MIC Drop" featuring Desiigner. After debuting on iTunes at #1 in more than 60 countries, as well as becoming Twitter's #1 worldwide trend, "Waste It On Me" has officially crossed 100 million on-demand streams in less than one month. Set to be one of Aoki's biggest singles ever, the track recently entered Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 Chart and hit #2 on the Dance/Electronic Chart. Accompanied by a star-studded music video, the Joe Hahn (Linkin Park)-directed visual features an all Asian-American cast including Ross Butler, Ken Jeong, Devon Aoki, Jamie Chung and Ben Baller, with cameos from Leonardo Nam, Vincent Rodriguez, Jimmy Yang, Jessica Lu, amongst others. The video premiered on People Magazine and earned international accolades from the likes of NME, Refinery 29, W Magazine, and Metro UK.
