San, Yoonho and Jongho of Ateez participated in Pentatonix’s newest song, which was unveiled Friday.
The three bandmates were the featured artists on the American a cappella group’s retake of “A Little Space.” The triple Grammy-winning quintet reached out to the boy band and the trio gladly accepted the idea to work together on a remix of the song that was originally released in February.
The collaborative work also will be included on Pentatonix’s forthcoming album, “The Lucky Ones (Deluxe),” and both bands will appear in the song’s music video.
Ateez debuted in 2018 as an eight-member boy band and has been garnering international attention since the first year of its music career, hitting Billboard and iTunes charts.
