On Monday (June 13), Anderson .Paak surprised hip-hop fans when he joined K-pop supergroup BTS to lay the beat down on the group’s new single, “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).” The jam session between .Paak and BTS was part of a 25-minute video called Proof Live, which sees the wildly popular South Korean boyband performing a number of the new tracks featured on their recently released album.
The three-minute performance shows Anderson .Paak seemingly having the time of his life, smiling from ear to ear in his signature wig and jamming on a zebra-striped drum kit. When the song was finished, the Silk Sonic artist wrapped up the surprise guest appearance by greeting each member of BTS to chop it up for a couple minutes. The jovial conversation provided some insight into how BTS linked up with .Paak through various encounters over the past few months and how he became a full-fledged member of the BTS Army. In perfect Korean, the 2016 XXL Freshman also explained how much respect he has for all that the global supergroup has accomplished.
It’s well-documented that Anderson .Paak is a huge fan of K-pop. In fact, it was just announced last month that the Ventura rapper is set to direct his own movie based on the popular form of South Korean music. The film will be called K-POPS! and .Paak will take on a starring role as well.
Watch the full BTS Proof Live performance below. Fast-forward to the 4:20-mark to see Anderson .Paak play the drums on “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).”
