Last September, BTS featured on 'My Universe,' a track by British pop-rock band Coldplay. Earlier this year, BTS dropped a CD single with two Billboard chart-topping songs 'Butter' (which birthed a remix with Megan Thee Stallion) and 'Permission To Dance,' as well as BTS THE BEST, a Japanese compilation album featuring Japanese versions of their biggest hits and 'Film Out,' a track co-created by Jungkook.
BTS just wrapped up their sold-out PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE concerts in LA which was watched by a total of 813,000 fans - from SoFi Stadium, the YouTube Theater, and online via VenewLive. The group is gearing up for their return to the live stage starting with concerts in Seoul, Korea in March 2022.
