BTS ARMY slams Jason Derulo for not giving the septet credit in 'Savage Love' success party post

American singer Jason Derulo, who is best known for hits like ‘Swalla’ and ‘Tip Toe’, rolled out a fresh collaboration with South Korean boy band BTS.

The song ‘Savage Love’, which was originally released in July 2020 with Jawsh 685, rose to a new level of fame when the septet got onboard, unveiling a second version featuring Suga, J-Hope and Jungkook.

The BTS collab garnered over 58 million views on the song within 2 weeks, compared to the original music video that generated 48 million views in over 3 months.

The song also bagged the top spot on Billboard Hot 100 as ARMY across the globe poured in love and appreciation for their idols.

Celebrating the same, Jason posted a video of ‘Savage Love’ success party on Instagram. While he did tag the record label Big Hit Entertainment, fans called him out for not mentioning the K-pop band members.

This led to the hashtag #JasonDeruloIsOverParty trending on Twitter.

One user wrote, "Jason Derulo has forgotten about BTS! Wow The one who got Billboard #1 is Savage Love Remix Don't forget that! You are at No.1 because of BTS! Congrats you’ve made it to army cancel list, REMEMBER sir BTS ate you up in your own song."

“Ummm where BTS in the tags??? And you ain’t even use the BTS version that GOT you that #1. And you asked us for 10 million likes??????,” added another.

Here are some more reactions on the microblogging site.

After receiving backlash for his snubbing BTS, Jason shared the same video on Twitter and tagged the K-pop band.

For those unversed, BTS has collaborated with multiple artists in the past such as Nicki Minaj, Lauv, Halsey and Becky G to name a few.

Last week, Billboard Music Awards 2020 crowned BTS as ‘Top Social Artist’ for the fourth year in a row.

The septet won the honour after millions of fans across the globe voted in their favour, beating other nominees such as EXO, GOT7, Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish.

They dedicated their speech to the ARMY. "Thank you ARMY for giving us this award four years in a row," said J Hope. "We think this award is a living proof that no matter where we are, ARMY and BTS stay so close and connected as always," continued RM. Suga added, "It's a collaboration of our special connection," and V concluded by saying, "Big thanks to you again ARMY and Billboard Music Awards."

BTS have announced that they will release their new album on November 20.
