The brand-new music video showcasing BTS’s celebrated dance moves, flawless choreography, and the stunning cinematography which made their videos really awesome.


The members dance and sing about breaking free as a waitress, office workers, and other people remove their face masks. The fun, uplifting, catchy new summer song is truly brought to life in the music video, which utilizes colorful, scenic desert vistas and small American South West towns to add vibrancy to the song’s message of embracing your wildest dreams, listening to your heart, and enjoying life as we don’t need permission to dance.

This fun-in-the-sun music video gives hope in these trying times as it bids farewell to COVID-19 pandemic and looks forward to a hopeful future in year 2022.


“We don’t need to worry, cause when we fall, we know how to land,” the members sing. “Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight, Cause we don’t need permission to dance.”

“I wanna dance, the music’s got me going, ain’t nothing that can stop how we move,” as the group sings in the lively chorus. “Let’s break our plans, and live just like we’re golden, and roll in like we’re dancing fools.”


The music video teaser which was released on Tuesday has featured a newspaper bearing the headline: “2022 The Beginning of a New Era Goodbye COVID-19.”

“Permission to Dance” is BTS’s third song written entirely in English, after 2020’s “Dynamite” and “Butter,” which debuted in May. The upbeat, summer song which is as cheerful as it is danceable, was produced by Ed Sheeran, Steve Mac, Jenna Andrews, and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.


This new song is part of the band’s “Butter” CD single, which is also out Friday and covers four tracks: “Butter,” “Permission to Dance,” “Butter (Instrumental), and “Permission to Dance (Instrumental).”

Just this Thursday, the ARMY celebrated the 8th year anniversary of the official Twitter handle for BTS dubbing the band’s fanbase the “A.R.M.Y.”


Earlier this May, BTS opened up to ET about staying humble amid their successful career, and utilizing their platform to speak up about the issues that matter.

We are seeing, I am seeing, more and more people take that interest in these issues. A lot of people are stepping up and trying to assist and spread awareness. So, we will work as hard as we can to have our voice heard as well and be a part of this.

“It’s a great honor,” Jungkook said of BTS’ success, which earned them the cover of Rolling Stone. 

I think it’s an achievement that was made possible because of ARMY and because, you know, we tried to do our best. We try to do the best we can and show great performances and keep continuing to do what we do.

– Jungkook
