When BTS announced that they would be collaborating with English singer and songwriter, Ed Sheeran for the second time on a new song titled, Permission To Dance, the news understandably sent the Internet into a tizzy.
The British singer-songwriter mentioned it during a radio interview in June when he said, “I’ve actually worked with BTS on their last record, and I’ve just written a song for their new record. And they’re like super, super cool guys as well.”
Sheeran wrote Make It Right for the group in 2019, and it was featured in their album Map of the Soul: Persona. Permission To Dance on the other hand will be featured on BTS' upcoming CD version of their mega-hit single, Butter, which was released on July 9.
Today, BTS released the highly anticipated music video for Permission To Dance, which is written entirely in English. The music video quickly garnered over 22 million views in less than four hours and that number is steadily climbing.
The high-spirited video features purple balloons, the wild wild west and people ripping off their masks to dance along to the music. In fact, here are a few moments we still just can't get over.
1. BTS goes west
The music video takes place in a desert and sees BTS dressed in cowboy boots, dusty denim jeans and white shirts as they dance in perfect synchronisation—as always.
So don't blame yourselves if you want to get up and dance along because it's that catchy a track.
