V was also given wardrobe credits!
During Weverse livestreams, the BTS members often introduce their fans to new music. Whether introduced intentionally or just through playing a song for fun in a livestream, the BTS members’ influence on ARMYs’ playlists is undeniable.
Oftentimes, after a member posts about another artist on their social media pages or plays another artist during their livestreams, many ARMYs rush to support the fellow singer.
Other times, the artists hear about the shoutout and thank the BTS member for recommending their song.

Recently, BTS’s V held a nearly 10-minute livestream and played multiple songs while casually chatting with fans.
One of those songs was Lil Vada and DonnySolo‘s “UP!” which V danced along to while he played the song.
V had played the song during a video once before, influencing many ARMYs to add it to their playlists.
V’s love for the song caught the attention of LA-based duo Lil Vada and DonnySolo, who dropped the official music video for “UP!” on September 2, and as a surprise to many, it featured BTS’s V himself!
A clip of BTS’s V during his August 28 livestream was added to the beginning of the music video with the caption, “Wardrobe inspired by Kim Taehyung of BTS.”
V was even given wardrobe credits in the description of the video on YouTube.
Lil Vada also shared a side-by-side photo of himself with the BTS member while wearing a V-inspired outfit.
He further showed support for the BTS member when he recommended his own fans check out V’s upcoming EP Layover while praising his recently released track “Love Me Again.”
Rapper Lil Vada and Donny Solo featured Taehyung jamming to their song “UP!” on live in their new music video of the song and credited him for the wardrobe inspiration!

Unsurprisingly, ARMYs were quick to spot V’s “cameo,” and the comment section on YouTube and on Lil Vada’s Instagram post about the song were taken over by a show of support from BTS’s fans.
