BTS gives us “Permission to Dance” in a catchy, summer hit single

‘Cause we don’t need permission to dance ~

Look alive, ARMYs! BTS is finally back with a brand-new song that will surely sweep you off your feet just in time for summer! 

On July 9, 2021 at 1 P.M. KST, BTS and HYBE Labels dropped the music video for the Grammy-nominated group’s third English song titled “Permission to Dance”. The song was released along with the single CD version of “Butter”, the group’s commercially successful English song after “Dynamite”. 

Co-written by Ed Sheeran, “Permission to Dance” oozed with such brightness and energy that celebrated diversity and positivity amidst the pandemic. The music video shows the members singing and dancing in an aesthetically pleasing laundromat and a Western desert in several outfits with their cowboy-inspired look being the most popular, having “Cowboy V” trend on Twitter’s top trending list just a few days ago. The video also showed several individuals—young and old, dancing along to the upbeat rhythm of BTS’ song. 

ARMYs are definitely elated and overjoyed with the release of their favorite idol group’s new song, with “#PermissiontoDance”, “The MV”, “RAP LINE”, and “V” climbing up of Twitter’s trending list almost immediately after the song was released. 

Some ARMYs even likened the choreography sequences of Jungkook to High School Musical, making it reach Twitter’s trend list as well. And we can all definitely see why! 

“Permission to Dance” is certainly an earworm hit to listen to! Definitely “song of summer” material.
