Although there are no news for upcoming collaborations just yet following the Steve Aoki song, members of MONSTA X have had a rich history of working with other artists. Hyungwon, as DJ H.ONE, teamed up with DJ Justin Oh for “Bam Bam Bam”. Shownu lent his vocals for London-based band PREP’s “Don’t Look Back”, a jazzy R&B song with lush synths.
I.M also mentioned a possible collaboration with singer Elhae, so keep a look out for future announcements.
