American Singer-songwriter, Jason Derulo, first released “Savage Love” in July with New Zealand music producer and TikTok sensation, Jawsh 685. Derulo came up with the new remix version featuring BTS members – Jungkook, J-Hope, and Suga only recently, and the second version topped the charts within a few days of its release on the 2nd of October.
The hashtag #JasonDeruloIsOverParty began trending on Twitter after Jason Derulo celebrated the chart-topping success of the “Savage Love” remix featuring the K-Pop phenomenal BTS. It was a time to celebrate for him since it was his first number one on the chart in 11 years. He had celebrated the milestone last time in 2009 following “Whatcha Say”. In a video that Derulo posted on his TikTok account, he was with friends over meals and drinks while the original version of the song (without the BTS) plays in the background. He tagged several of his friends in the video, but not the K-Pop group who helped him reach the highest spot on Billboard Hot 100 chart.
He captioned the video, “It’s a celebration @#savagelove @hannastocking @ondreazlopez @charlyjordan @itstaylerholder @justmaiko @sommeray @jena @mrmovi3,” along with the montage.
BTS’ worldwide huge fandom known as ARMYs were not pleased to see that their idols didn’t receive proper credit from Jason Derulo. They are accusing him of using the Bangtan Boys’ popularity for clout or his success. Then he allegedly neglected to thank the K-Pop stars.
After being criticized for snubbing the group in the celebration video, Jason Derulo later shared the video on Twitter, this time mentioning BTS. He eventually made a tweet crediting Jawsh 685 and BTS. He posted his TikTok celebration video and wrote, “Wish @BTS_twt @jawsh_685 was here for the celebration! We did it! #1 on the Billboard chart! Savage love.”
