Jungkook and Charlie released their collaboration on June 24.
The song immediately went to number one on the Worldwide iTunes chart on the first day of its release.
"Thank you all for the unbelievable response to ‘Left and Right.’ Make sure you listen with headphones or in a car to really get the full effect," Charlie posted on social media after releasing the song in June.
In a recent interview with Z100 New York, Charlie shared the story on how his collaboration with Jungkook came into fruition and why he chose the BTS member as his collaborator for this song.
"He immediately came to mind because, and by the way I didn't even know that they would be going into hiatus when I reached out to him and asked if he would like to be part of it. But we have the musical history together. We had performed in an award show. Prior we always send each other music that we love. He always talks about me in interviews, I always talk about him in interviews. I love natural real life collaborations," he relayed.
"Left and Right" is expected to be part of Charlie's upcoming album called Charlie.
On July 7, Charlie announced that his new album will be released on October 7. The singer shared the official artwork of the album on his Instagram page.
"This album was born on the internet, and I’ve had so much fun making it in front of all of you this past year. 2019 me used to think that in order to be an artist, you had to hide away and talk to nobody to make your art. Turns out you make MUCH better art when you involve millions of people in the process. (For me at least.) I hope you scream cry every word when I sing these songs on tour because they wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you. CHARLIE - out October 7th, 2022," he posted.
