One of the biggest K-pop stars will once again be placed on a global stage at a time when they are considering solo careers and military duty.
Following Jin’s military enlistment announcement, many BTS band members are working on solo projects now that the band is on hiatus. Recently, RM released Indigo, his debut solo album, along with Jin’s solo track with Coldplay, The Astronaut, and J-Hope’s solo album Jack in the Box.
Several months ago, Charlie Puth and Jungkook collaborated on the song Left and Right.
There are also expected to be performances from Shakira, Dua Lipa, J Balvin, Kizz Daniel, Calvin Harris, Nora Fatehi, and Trinidad Cardona at the ceremony.
Previously, Jungkook was seen in Qatar filming a video and many fans assumed it was for the FIFA 2022 soundtrack music video. It will be exciting to see his vocals in the unique track, which has been a fan favorite for many years, and we hope he brings his aura to both the MV and the track.
