On July 9, BTS released a music video for their new single “Permission to Dance.” The song is BTS’ third English-language single. Like their previous English-language releases “Dynamite” and “Butter,” “Permission to Dance” has a lighthearted message in an effort to bring fans happiness amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The music video for “Permission to Dance” was posted on YouTube at midnight EDT on July 9. In the video, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook wear denim outfits and dance together as a symbol of encouragement.

The “Permission to Dance” music video also features teachers, children, and essential workers taking off their masks and dancing, finding joy amid the pandemic. With the lyrics for “Permission to Dance,” BTS encourage listeners to be happy whenever possible, a message similar to their past songs like “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On.”

“We don’t need to worry / ‘Cause when we fall, we know how to land / Don’t need to talk the talk, just walk the walk tonight / ‘Cause we don’t need permission to dance,” the band sings.

After the music video dropped on YouTube, a press release described “Permission to Dance” as “another fun song for everyone to enjoy, prompting listeners to bop their heads and bust some dance moves… Just as the lyrics go, the song spreads the message that you don’t need permission to dance to your heart’s content, dedicated to anyone who is having a bad day or is discouraged in the face of reality. Words of encouragement overflow upon a bouncy rhythm that gives energy to get up on your feet and dance again.”

After the “Permission to Dance” music video was posted on YouTube, ARMY around the world reacted to the song on social media. Many fans appreciated the message of the song and the spark of carefree happiness it provided.

“I like it! It’s a song for this particular moment of pandemic-weariness. We’re still in lockdown where I live…,” a Reddit user wrote. “I love this as a song about finding (or even claiming) joy even when the odds are against it. Also, the MV is cute af.”

“… I think we’ll look back at these songs, when this whole thing is behind us, and they’ll capture such a specific moment in time, and a happiness that we got from this music and these seven guys, and I think that’s exactly what they’re going for,” one fan wrote on Reddit.

“Permission to Dance” was written by Ed Sheeran, Steve Mac, Johnny McDaid, and Jenna Andrews. Mac, Stephen Kirk, and Andrews produced the song. While the song is a digital single and music video, it was also released as an additional song on a physical CD of BTS’ popular single “Butter.”

BTS released the CD of “Butter” on July 9. The CD has a total of four tracks: “Butter,” “Permission to Dance,” “Butter (Instrumental),” and “Permission to Dance (Instrumental).” “Butter” originally came out on May 21. Since its release, the single has spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

On July 13 and July 14, BTS will perform “Permission to Dance” and “Butter” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

K-pop group BTS is the best-selling artist in Korean history, and they've been expanding more and more into the Western music scene. Their third English-language single, titled "Permission to Dance," is both catchy and vibrant, but rumor has it the boys didn't write the track alone.

Who wrote "Permission to Dance," and where was the music video filmed? Read on for everything we know.

If you loved the 2019 Map of the Soul: Persona track "Make It Right," you'll probably notice some similarities between "Make It Right" and "Permission to Dance." The biggest similarity? Their co-writer.

BTS typically writes their songs, but in the instance of both "Make It Right" and "Permission to Dance," they had a little help in the form of famous singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

In a tweet from July 9, 2021, Ed gushes about "Permission to Dance." He said, "Wrote this song a while ago and so happy it’s being heard on such a world stage and being sung by such talented people.

Check out Permission to Dance by @BTS_twt@bts_bighit on all platforms x." The song continues themes of feel-good, classic summer fun similar to their second English-language single, "Butter."

In an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, BTS discussed the themes of "Butter" via an interpreter: "We wanted to create a song that's really upbeat, that's a really summer song that, as you said, it makes people happy and go out and dance. That's what we want to do. We wanted to have a summer song that can heal and console people. That's why we chose this song, and that's why we decided to release this song."

The idea behind "Permission to Dance" is even more literal, encouraging people to enjoy themselves, celebrate happy moments, and push through difficult or dark times with youthful abandon.

The music video also showcases these themes with elaborate costumes, bright colors, and lots of dancing!

The "Permission to Dance" music video joyfully celebrates a pandemic ending, with small details including fake newspaper headlines about "2022, The Beginning Of A New Era" and "Purple balloons signal the end of COVID-19," as spotted by a few eagle-eyed fans.

There is also a signpost with different cities listed, which fans think nods to a potential tour coming soon.

One of the most impressive details about the music video was that BTS music videos production designers didn't use a green screen — they created the desert background of "Permission to Dance" from scratch! 

Photos from Twitter and Instagram show the progress of MU: E, the Production Designer for the video, and many other BTS videos.

While none of the posts indicate the exact location where the music video was filmed, it's clear that immense time and dedication went into crafting the look and feel of the video.

As with everything BTS does, the details make a world of difference, and the upbeat, sunny cowboys-and-sunshine atmosphere perfects the video.

The new BTS single "Permission to Dance" is out on musical platforms everywhere.
