BTS' Jungkook takes on Jack Harlow in 3D MV - who wins?
In a world where music knows no boundaries, BTS' Jungkook has been consistently proving his mettle as a solo artist, unleashing one hit after another and showcasing his unique musical identity. In a recent interview with Consequence, the talented idol shed light on his latest solo single, "3D," and gave fans an inside look at his collaboration with the 25-year-old rapper, Jack Harlow.
"3D," the fruit of their musical synergy, offers a glimpse into the undeniable chemistry between these two artists, even though their busy schedules prevented them from physically recording the track together. Their first meeting took place on the set of the song's music video, and Jungkook had nothing but praise for the infectious energy brought by the "WHAT'S POPPIN" rapper.
What makes this collaboration even more remarkable is the memorable experience that unfolded during the video shoot. Jungkook, a novice in the game of chess, took on the challenge of learning and playing the strategic board game for the very first time. Much to everyone's surprise, including Jack Harlow's, Jungkook emerged victorious. This triumph perfectly aligns with Jungkook's well-known competitive spirit and his natural aptitude for excelling in various activities, including games and sports.
"3D," released on September 29, is a testament to Jungkook's versatility as an artist. The track embodies a Pop R&B style with infectious beats and vibrant energy. Sung entirely in English, it follows in the footsteps of Jungkook's previous solo releases like "Left and Right," "Dreamers," and "Seven." Jungkook describes the song as playful and pleasantly surprising, thanks to its more mature and nuanced lyrics.
The music video for "3D" takes the experience to a whole new level. Directed by the talented Drew Kirsch, known for his work on Charlie Puth's "Left and Right" and Taylor Swift's "You Need To Calm Down," the video complements the song's upbeat nature with dynamic dance sequences and visually striking camera work. The clever camera movements and angles immerse viewers in a multidimensional world that perfectly complements the song's themes.
A highlight of the music video is the interaction between Jungkook and Jack Harlow. In one memorable scene, the two musicians are seen standing side by side, engrossed in a game of chess, all while grooving to the infectious beats of "3D." This visual representation of their collaboration adds an extra layer of depth to the music video.
Following the song's release, BTS's official Twitter account (formerly known as BTS's X) shared a snapshot of the two artists together during the shoot, giving fans a taste of the camaraderie behind the scenes. Jungkook also treated fans to a "Get Ready With Me" video, offering a glimpse into the making of "3D" with special behind-the-scenes footage. Additionally, he shared videos of himself rehearsing the dance sequences with the backup dancers, giving fans an inside look at the creative process.
