BTS‘s Suga popped on a live stream and chatted with fans about the behind stories of making his second mix tape D-2. In this two-hour long session, he went into depth for each of the ten tracks and also gave some details about the making of the “Daechwita” music video.
The track “Dear My Friend” featuring Kim Jong Wan from Nell was intentionally put last on the track list as Suga wanted it to sound like a “curtain call” style ending song. The original title for this track was “Friend” but was later changed to “Dear My Friend” after “Friends” came out on the MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 album.
He also revealed that he had Nell in mind to sing the melody of the song from the beginning of the writing process for this song. He even had one vocal lesson from Kim and admitted that he fanboy-ed a bit as it felt like he was at a Nell concert in a front row seat.
He also shared that Jungkook was actually the guide vocal for the song and revealed that he had the recording on his laptop. Fans in the comments asked if he would share the recording and he gladly turned on a snippet of Jungkook singing the guide vocals.
Take a listen to Jungkook’s beautiful voice!
It’s nice to see that the members supporting and helping Suga with his Agust D activities through guide vocals, coffee trucks, and even cameos in the music video!
