Fans hope the two singers will collaborate

After Jimin attended Benjamin’s concert, fans became hopeful the two singers will collaborate in the future. Jimin attended the concert with Eric Nam, and Nam later interviewed Benjamin. During the interview, Nam told Benjamin what a fan Jimin is.

“It was funny cause he just kept sitting there and he was like ‘His voice is insane. His voice is insane’… for like an hour just like ‘His voice is insane,'” Nam said.

In an interview with a Chinese media outlet, Benjamin confirmed that he wants to collaborate with Jimin.

“There’s a two-month break between when I go home after my trip to China and when I go away to Europe again, when I’m going to be making my album and hopefully writing with other people. I have some plans to collaborate with Khalid and also Jimin from BTS,” Benjamin said.

Fans are excited for the collaboration

After Benjamin tweeted about Jimin’s favorite song of his, interest in a collaboration between the two resurfaced.

One fan replied to Benjamin’s post and tweeted, “AND COLLAB?”

“Sister, give us the collab. It’s almost the end of the year,” another fan tweeted.
