Singer-songwriter Charlie Puth accidentally dropped details of a collaboration with K-pop group BTS on Saturday during the iHeart Radio Wango Tango concert.
Puth, a performer at the day-long concert, was later interviewed by 102.7KIISFM. When asked about a possible collaboration with the K-pop superstars, Puth said, “I heard that too, and everybody in my camp doesn’t know the day it comes out. We legitimately have no idea of the day it comes out. We do, but like we just figured it out.”

Some fans are still trying to determine whether the collaboration will be with the whole group or with vocalist Jungkook.
Jungkook has expressed interest in collaborating with Puth, and the two have had some musical interactions in the past. Jungkook and fellow bandmate Jimin dropped a cover of Puth’s hit song “We Don’t Talk Anymore” in 2017.
At the MBC Plus X Genie Music Awards in 2018, Puth and Jungkook also performed the same song together before Puth later joined BTS for their performance of “Fake Love.”

Fans are also speculating that two similar photos of a city street posted on the same day by Jungkook and Puth may hint at something.

Additionally, both Puth and his music director Matthew Daniel Siskin have started following Jungkook on Instagram, adding even more fuel to the fire of a possible collaboration.
