Yet, a few also noticed similarities to the 1994 song “Regulate,” performed by American rapper, DJ, and producer Warren G feat. Nate Dogg, from the album Regulate…G Funk Era.

Interestingly, BTS actually worked with Warren G during their reality show American Hustle Life, even covering “Regulate.”

So, ARMYs love that “Standing Next to You” might also be a nod to BTS’s roots, remembering this.


“Standing Next to You” feels even more special knowing Jungkook and BTS worked with Warren G back in 2014 during American Hustle Life! #bts #jk #jungkook #btsarmy #btsxarmy

Standing Next to You by Jungkook sounds a lot like Regulate by Warren G ft Nate Dogg & the funny thing is Warren G actually made an appearance on American Hustle Life #bts #kpop #jungkook #standingnexttoyou #jungkookgolden

Knowing how BTS connects so much of their discography and history, especially with this year marking their 10th anniversary, it seems probable.

 Do you remember “American Hustle Life?”
