During the Mnet Asian Music Awards, Taeyeon of the hit girl group, Girls’ Generation, and American rapper, Wiz Khalifa, were preparing to be performing on stage together. The two artists planned out a performance where they are going to sing the Charlie Puth’s hit song, “See You Again”.
But even though there was a rehearsal video which involved the two artists, the performance still didn’t really pushed through. Because of the unfortunate scenario, they immediately went to their respective social media accounts to reason out to their disappointed fans what happened.
According to All K-pop, Wiz Khalifa says on his Twitter account that Taeyeon surprisingly backed out of the performance due to a certain reason. However, he showed a positive understanding in accepting Taeyeon’s rejection.
It was also reported that Taeyeon’s fans were angry on Wiz Khalifa because he spelled her name incorrectly as “Teyeon”. Soon after, Taeyeon went on to reason out on her Twitter account that her decision to reject the offer was because of the music problem.
Taeyeon then adds that she is unable to do a sound check. This has been the real reason why she decided to not push through their collaboration on stage. The K-pop idol went on explaining that the song’s other version was instead prepared to be broadcasted. With this, one can clearly see that it’s all due to technical issues.
Fortunately, the official studio version of the Taeyeon Wiz Khalifa’s music collaboration has finally been released. According to Pop Crush, the Minneapolis radio station was the one to broadcast it.
Thanks to this, the disappointment of their fans turned to mere awe and surprise because even though their performance on stage didn’t push through, their music collaboration recording was still released. Hopefully, they still get to do another collaboration with each other.
