At the young age of just 17, Joshua Christian Nanai aka Jawsh 685; who is an extremely talented New Zealand music producer, achieved a major milestone of topping Billboard Hot 100 (along with Jason Derulo and BTS) with the viral track Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat) [BTS Remix]. Millions and millions got obsessed with his addictive, catchy tune as the 2020 single became a major TikTok trend.

During an emailer interview with Pinkvilla, you could instantly sense that Jstyla' is a man of few words while he really loves his emoticons. The elated teenager was excited over his first No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 while he was also majorly appreciative of what BTS brought to the table when it came to the Savage Love Remix. Moreover, Jawsh couldn't help but pour out his immense admiration for BTS ARMY (with a purple heart emoticon in tow!), who have been showering him with love on social media.

Here are some excerpts from Pinkvilla's EXCLUSIVE conversation with the man of the hour; Jawsh 685:

Firstly, a hearty congratulations on achieving your first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with Savage Love (Laxed Siren Beat) [BTS Remix]. What was your immediate reaction upon hearing the amazing news?

Aww... it was just a big blessing and shock for me and my family and friends. But we knew we could do it! Much love to everyone that supports.

Did you speak to Jason and BTS post the Billboard Hot 100 announcement? What was their reaction?

Nah, but it’s okay we did it! It all happened pretty quick and everyone is in different countries. There was a lot of love on social media between us all. We got that No. 1 and we are proud to be there. All glory to God.

For ones not aware, how did your collaboration with Jason Derulo come about?

Simply, he just hit me up on Instagram and we had a chat for a short while, then our teams brought it together. We had the song up and running pretty quick for all to listen and enjoy.

How did the back and forth process go between you, Jason and BTS for the making of Savage Love Remix?

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

#SavageLoveRemix OUT NOW ! - Jawsh 685 x @jasonderulo x @bts.bighitofficial .

A post shared by Jstyla’ Nanai (@jawsh_685) on

It was quite fun, just throwing around ideas and mixes until we got it how we wanted it to sound. Not only for us but for the supporters and fans. I know BTS has a really huge fanbase that is massively passionate. We wanted to make it sound good for them too, being new to the track, you know.

What was your take on Suga and J-Hope's Korean lyrics that added a different flavour to Savage Love?

It was just very cool; knowing it was clearly in another language made it more unique than it was to start with. BTS did a great job!

What did you think of Jungkook's recent cover of Savage Love Remix that went viral on Twitter?

Clean clean clean! Sounds hella nice.

BTS ARMY are some of the most loyal fanbases out there; how do you feel to be accepted with so much love showered upon you by them?

I feel frkn beast. Much much love and respect out toward the ARMY. They got behind us and put us at the top, can’t thank them enough.

Explain how they reached #1 on billboard, without BTS Jason Derulo would not be able to reach No #1 on billboard. Your probably just jealous that they sound better than you, I wonder if you would have sang with them you would have probably ruined the whole song by sounding like a dying roach and by the way BTS donated 1M to BLM so shut up

BTS’s ARMY donated $1M to BLM to match with BTS’s donation in 24 hours. You spewed hatred because they sound gay. you must live under a rock to have such backward thinking. People like you are detrimental to this society.

Ruin the song to #1?? If that’s the case I’m sure every will use them then. The original song wasn’t even close to be at #1 until BTS touches it so take ur ass gay comment elsewhere!!

Gay af?! The fact that u are using the word gay as an insult is just pathetic..what are u from the dark ages? BTS makes more in a day than you will in your entire lifetime and they just saved Jason's shitty song...n pls do not bring race into this..not an army but BTS definitely won that top 100 spot for jason.

And we are an ARMY we never discriminate against ppl on any factors! We believe in the concept of " LOVE YOURSELF "

And you're shaming them because of their looks.. If Jason's song is actually that good then why didn't it reach top 1 on billboard charts before he collaborates with BTS.. HE'S on the top because of BTS

Should Army now support Jawsh 685 and start viewing/streaming again? Seems he appreciate BTS more than Jason

Maybe Jason should do a better job of thanking people who got him to number 1 after 11 years.

Anonymous 1 month ago

ikr. You'd think he be a bit more thoughtful. Anyone remember his duet with Fly To The Sky's Brian Joo in 2010?

While better than Derulo, I still don't think he looks at BTS beyond their fanbase. I mean Suga and Jhope's rap verses were more than a "different language", they added depth to the song (if he took the pains to translate the lyrics that is). It just saddens me that people still refuse to respect BTS as the artists they are.

But you have to keep in mind that he is just a 17 yr old kid who is really excited and probably lost for words.☺️
