The original track is featured on the K-pop group’s newest album, titled Love Yourself: Tear. Unlike Aoki and BTS’s previous collaboration for the hip hop track “Mic Drop” from Love Yourself: Tear‘s predecessor, Love Yourself: Her, “The Truth Untold” is a slow-paced and emotional song. Since Aoki’s concerts are filled with EDM fans, he wanted to remix the track so he could play it as his sets.
So proud of the success of our song #TheTruthUntold that I had to start working on a remix that I can play in my sets. So far it sounds amazing. Can’t wait for u all to hear it. Debuting sooooon! @BTS_twt

As well as making the announcement on his Twitter page, Aoki also posted about it on Instagram, where he told fans that he would release the remix if his Instagram post received 10,000 comments.
Thanks to the power of BTS’s fanbase called the “ARMY,” the producer received 10,000 comments in less than an hour, which lead to Aoki confirming the release of the remix “very soon.”
