BE still our ARMY hearts! BTS is taking the stage for a special edition of MTV Unplugged on Tuesday, Feb. 23, and Billboard has an exclusive first look.
In the clip below that MTV is sharing first with Billboard, the K-pop superstars are in matching blazers and khakis in various shades of brown, sweetly crooning BE lead single “Life Goes On” while their backing band — masked, of course — are behind them playing the drums, guitar and keyboards. As the global stars perform, the cameras zoom in at various points to focus on one vocalist, revealing that RM, Jungkook, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V each have a sparkly microphone a different shade from his fellow singers’.
BTS’ Unplugged session was filmed in Seoul, South Korea, and will feature songs from the group’s latest album, BE (Deluxe Edition), as well as various hits from their catalog. Though BE — which includes the smash hit “Dynamite” — was just released in November, BTS announced in late January that BE (Essential Edition) would be arriving Feb. 19.
With the next edition of BE and MTV Unplugged coming up, it’s looking to be a big 2021 for BTS. The group has also been nominated at the Grammys for best pop duo/group performance for “Dynamite,” which is their first English-language single. BTS ARMY can watch to see if the K-pop stars are victorious on March 14.
