Jason Derulo has been trending all over Twitter this week – over an issue of song credit!
The singer received tons of backlash from K-pop fans (particularly ARMYs) for failing to give proper credit to the members of BTS (방탄소년단) after the remixed version of his hit song “Savage Love”, which features the globally famous K-pop group, topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Jason took to his TikTok to post a video of him and his friends celebrating the success of the song, with the original version of “Savage Love” playing in the background over the weekend. “It’s a celebration @#savagelove @hannastocking @ondreazlopez @charlyjordan @itstaylerholder @justmaiko @sommeray @jena @mrmovi3.”
Notice something missing?
Well, the singer failed to mention or tag BTS in the clip, much to the dismay of ARMYs. This sparked a major outcry among fans, who called the pop star out for discrediting the “DNA” jam-makers’ participation in the viral hit. Most of them took to Twitter and used the hashtag “#JasonDeruloIsOverParty” to vent out their frustration.
Check out a few Twitter reactions from enraged ARMYs below:

2months. Just two weeks.

Jason Derulo literally admitted to using BTS. I been knew he was fake the first time he asked for 10M likes on his TikTok with BTS. Hopefully y'all can see it now. #JasonDeruloIsOverParty #JasonDeruloIsCancelled
