Yup it’s true the MIC Drop Remix has in fact been pushed back.
No need to panic though folks because it has only been pushed back for 1 week, thankfully. Originally it was supposed to drop on November 17th and now it looks to be aiming for a November 24th release instead. Apparently the change up happened after both Steve Aoki and Desiigner, their collaborators on the track, wanted to re-discuss the release date. After some talks I guess they all came to the similar conclusion that it would probs be better to wait until AFTER the American Music Awards and all the following promotions thereafter too were done. This is all according to Big Hit‘s statement.
If you don’t believe me you can check out their twitter here. They put out the new date themselves as well to a link to an article on Naver explaining everything.
Personally I think this news is actually fantastic because I always did think it was weird to release this hotly anticipated track sooo close to the AMAs. Let us not forget they go down on November 19th!!! I think this way now we can focus all of our attention in hyping that up first and making sure it blows up as big as it should. Then once it’s over we can do the same for MIC Drop. Last thing we need is for these two things to be so close that they end up cannibalizing each others hype.
It may suck at first because I’m sure we wanna get our grubby little hands on everything BTS related as soon as possible, but trust me you’ll be ok. 🙂 Think about it, we got Kimmel, Ellen, and The AM freaking As to look forward to to keep us real busy. And who knows what other kind of surprises await us in between too. Cuz you just know they’ll use this opportunity to film all sorts of behind the scenes extras while they’re there. So don’t go on being greedy fans ok? 😛
Now tell me the truth are y’all actually gonna be ok in all this? Let me know down below. In the meantime to make the wait as easiest as possible here is the original Live Performance. In all it’s swagalicious glory. I tell you, I’m damn curious to see how they can make this track any more “turnt up” than what it already is. 😀
…Ahh what a great track to address all those haters ain’t it? Feel bad for all those ANTIs who wasted all that time focusing on such negativity towards BTS. Hopefully they can move on and find some positivity soon. ^___^
P.S. Also congratz to BTS for getting 10,000,000 followers on twitter and being the first Korean account to do so. Now you guys get a brand new trophy to put in your guy’s bag. 😉 Make sure to keep it safe.
