American rapper, singer, and songwriter Aminé is working a lot with DIVE Studios recently and recently came out with his own MINDSET collection. He was a guest on the podcast Daebak Show w/ Eric Nam where he talked about a variety of topics with host and fellow solo artist Eric Nam.
During their conversation, Eric Nam and Aminé reflected on previous trips to South Korea where Aminé recalled performing and said, “It felt like… It was a great feeling to be on stage. Everyone was just so like lovely and was so happy to be there. Yeah, it felt like … a good time like super welcoming.”
Aminé pondered the source of his international fame when Eric added, “There are so many Korean fans of yours, not just like you know the everyday person but a lot of artists…” Eric listed pH-1 and NCT‘s Mark Lee as a couple of examples.
He also brought up the time when BTS‘s V tweeted a video, jamming out to Aminé’s song “BLACKJACK” two years ago. This was definitely a moment that helped introduce Aminé to many people.
This V’s video is now technically taken down because of copyright, unfortunately.
Aminé revealed that he and BTS actually formed a friendship thanks to social media. He said, “They’re fans, and I’m a fan of them… We followed each other. We’ve DM’d in the past, and they’re super cool, like, yeah, really nice guys.“
He further said, “I think we’re meaning to work, but like, you know, how that goes with artists like they’re busy, I’m— They’re selling out Wembley Stadium. They don’t need to talk to me. It’s okay!“
