Steve Aoki and BTS shook the world with their new collaboration “Waste It On Me,” and the track’s music video may just shake the world even more. The video dropped Monday, and it features an all Asian-American cast.
The “Waste It On Me” video is a who’s who of Asian American celebrities. Aoki appears prominently, but the video follows Hollywood film and TV star Ken Jeong on a quest to woo model Devon Aoki, Steve Aoki’s half-sister. Other cameos come from actors and actresses such as Ross Butler, Jamie Chung, Leonardo Nam, Vincent Rodriguez III and Jimmy O. Yang. YouTube personality Tiffany Ma even makes an appearance.
The BTS members are noticeably absent, but the star-studded cast makes up for it. Watch the “Waste It On Me” video below:

This is super important! There is a serious lack of Asian-American representation in the music industry, and it’s nice to see that major artists and labels are working towards creating a more inclusive work environment for marginalized and underrepresented groups.
