After the hullabaloo at the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) that involved Wiz Khalifa and Girls' Generation's Taeyeon, fans can finally listen to their controversial "See You Again" collaboration.
In December last year, Wiz Khalifa and Taeyeon were at the center of a controversy regarding their special performance of Charlie Puth's "See You Again" at the 2016 MAMA. Wiz Khalifa and Taeyeon were supposed to perform together on stage, until the latter reportedly backed out at the last minute. During the event, Wiz Khalifa performed the song without Taeyeon.
Wiz Khalifa's camp was first to open up about the topic, stating they were surprised that Taeyeon did not push through with the performance. The rapper, however, clarified that there is absolutely no beef between him and Taeyeon.
On the other hand, Taeyeon's camp explained that there was a misunderstanding regarding the AR and MR version of the song. An MR version is needed for the live performance, but producers only had an AR version ready.
It was revealed much later that there was more to the mix-up. According to Koreaboo, Wiz Khalifa's music director, DJ Bionics, explained that there were discrepancies during rehearsals and that miscommunication factored into Taeyeon backing out of the performance.
Months after the 2016 MAMA controversy, fans can now listen to Wiz Khalifa and Taeyeon's much awaited "See You Again" duet. The song was released by US-based radio station Go 95.3 and DJ Bonics, allkpop reports.
Meanwhile, Taeyeon and the rest of Girls' Generation are reportedly working on their next album, which is expected to drop in time for the group's 10 anniversary, which will be on August.
Taeyeon dropped her first ever full solo album in February. Titled "My Voice," the album contained 13 songs, which includes the title track "Sweet Love."
