K-Pop star PSY announced that he has collaborated with BTS member Suga for one of his tracks in his upcoming ninth album.
On Tuesday, April 26, PSY shared that the second track from his new record PSY 9th is called "That That" and is produced by Suga.
A video interview about his collaboration with Suga was uploaded on PSY's Twitter page.
In the said video, Suga admitted that he was initially nervous collaborating with PSY.
"At first, because he's many years my senior and someone who's so well-respected in the business I was quite nervous," he confessed.
Suga said that they turned out to have become the best of friends after their collaboration.
"It felt like working with a childhood friend so it made the songwriting process that much more fun," he said.
He added, "We became besties in a way."
PSY remarked that he also considers Suga as his friend.
"He wasn't just my junior in the business but also he truly feels like a friend," he remarked.
"If he thinks of me as a bestie, that's great for me. How much younger does that make me?" PSY quipped.
On Tuesday, PSY also released the track list of his album which includes 12 songs such as "Celeb," "Happier," and "Everyday," among others. PSY's new album has numerous collaborators as well including Sung Si Kyung, Heize, and Jessi, among others.

It was on April 12 when PSY announced that he is releasing a new album.
"I know a lot of you have high expectations for my next hit song. To be honest, I produced ‘Champion’ in 2002 and it took me exactly 10 years to produce a song that is more sensational than ‘Champion’ with the release of ‘Gangnam Style’ in 2012. I guess what I’m trying to say is, perhaps the next time you meet a song like ‘Gangnam Style’ will be in 2022," he said in the teaser video he shared back in April 12.
PSY 9th album will be released on April 29.
