Coming off of the international success of their single “Butter,” which has been No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for six weeks, BTS has released a new summer single that has us ready to get up and move. In the music video for “Permission to Dance,” which premiered on July 8, V, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, and the rest of the BTS crew hit the desert in full cowboy attire — yes, including chaps, Stetsons, and a lot of fringe — to show off their exceptional dance moves.
“The music’s got me going / Ain’t nothing that can stop how we move, yeah,” they sing as they shimmy across the sand and make their way into a roadside laundry mat. “Let’s break our plans / And live just like we’re golden / And roll in like we’re dancing fools.” As if the lyrics didn’t give it away, the upbeat tempo and the band’s energetic dance moves make this song the equivalent of a summer day on the road with friends or sipping drinks by the pool. It’s happiness in its purest form. Check out the full “Permission to Dance” video above and see how fast you can memorize the choreography.
