From what we can figure out is that both of them were having fun with the entire concept, sets, and of course, the song!

Charlie Puth’s revelation

Weeks before the release of Left and Right, Charlie Puth talked about and confirmed his collaboration with the BTS members in an interview. It was the singer himself who let the cat out of the bag by accidentally confirming his collaboration with the Septet. Seems like the singer was talking about his collaboration with none other than the youngest member Jungkook himself! As for the song Left and Right, it has already started winning the hearts of the audience within just a few hours of its release.
