The group’s debut performance of ‘Permission To Dance’ will come just days after its upcoming release later this week on July 9. BTS’ label HYBE has described the track as a song “that will make your heart beat to the rhythm of BTS’ positive energy”.
The song was co-written by British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran, alongside Snow Patrol’s Steve Mac, frequent Sheeran collaborator Johnny McDaid and Jenna Andrews. The song will also be featured on the CD version of ‘Butter’, the group’s first physical release since their fifth Korean-language full length album ‘Be’.
Meanwhile, ‘Butter’ has been going strong on the charts, having extended their hold on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the sixth week in a row. The song has spent its entire run on the chart so far on the top spot, since its debut on May 21.
