The Summer Anthem is Here: Bad Decisions X Benny Blanco X BTS X Snoop Dogg


It was the collaboration that was hinted at for months, and yet army was still shocked when on the 20th of July producer Benny Blanco announced his new single “Bad Decisions” feat BTS and Snoop Dogg would be released on 5, August 2022 at 1PM KST time.

As usual, the excitement has led to the release, with the teaser schedule being announced across both BTS channels and Benny Blancos. If it's one thing armies love it's a concise and consistent schedule.

It was revealed that Vocal line would feature on the single (Kim Seokjin, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung, and Jeon Jungkook) instead of Rapline (Kim Namjoon, Min Yoongi, and Jung Hoseok.)

Teasers gave zero clues as to what the song or music video would sound like, replicating 90-’s word art graphics and cryptic trailers. The day before the release Benny sent army on a treasure hunt to find the USB containing the single. As usual, army found the stick in less than 24 hours after identifying plants, and a sunrise led them to the hills of California.

Well, the single and accompanying video is released and as expected it’s a summer bop prepare to hear this everywhere you go to get your summer going. The song is the perfect blend of Jungkook’s lead vocals mixed with Jimin's lead harmonies, Jin and Tae balance it out perfectly. Throw in Snoop Dogg (which I never thought I’d be hearing never mind typing) smooth and effortlessly cool tones leading to a hit. 

The video itself depicted a day in the life of army played by Benny Blanco as he prepares himself for a BTS concert. Although trolling fans with the memorabilia-clad bedroom, preparing his outfit, and dance practicing to music videos.

The boys themselves are nowhere to be seen. Although the premise of the video focuses on bad decisions, a slew of them leads Benny to the gates 28 hours early, yet he decides to wait out front instead of going home - perhaps that is more army. 

The lyrics are catchy and flirty as Jungkook sings “No makeup on, I love that shit. You’re so damn beautiful I swear you make me sick.” By the end of the first listen, you’ll be ooh and ahhing your way through the day as you can’t get them out of your mind. Stream ‘Bad Decisions’ out now on all streaming platforms and for purchase on Itunes and Apple music!
