Add Maroon 5 to the long list of artists who are just dying to hop on the BTS bandwagon. No really though, it seems as though the K-pop band has a line out the door of stars who are just dying to collaborate with them, so this really comes by no surprise. However, the weird part is that after Maroon 5 mysteriously teased a collab, they then deleted their tweets.
It all started when a BTS fan tweeted in response to the music video teaser Maroon 5 posted on Twitter. “PLEASE MAKE A COLAB WITH @BTS_twt ???,” the message read, complete with tons of pink heart emojis.
The band responded with a simple smiley face – which duh, gave everyone some hope. “Don’t play with my emotions! Tell me this means you’ll do a collaboration with @BTS_twt,” someone else wrote.
While they didn’t ~say~ anything in response, their choice of gif was quite smug if you ask us. Another excited fan then chimed in, “But really what is the answer? ??” – to which the band replied, “not sure you can handle it.”
But really what is the answer?? 😭😂 pic.twitter.com/dpzAgaBXVn

Now for some reason behind our comprehension, all of the band’s tweets are now deleted. But thanks to some fans who just also happen to be v keen investigators, the screenshots will remain to live on.

It’s not like a BTS collab is out of the question. After all Maroon 5 is always pairing up with artists to create smash hits (“Don’t Wanna Know” featuring Kendrick Lamar, “What Lovers Do” featuring SZA, “Help Me Out” with Julia Michaels, “Payphone” featuring Wiz Khalifa – just to name a select few). So quit playing games with our hearts, Maroon 5. Will ya? A potential new BTS song is nothing to joke about.
So excuse us while we just sit here wondering if this’ll ever happen for all of eternity.
