BTS received the request from Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday tribute project, and once again became well-known with the phrase “global group”.
However, it is said that it was difficult for BTS to participate in the project, due to their schedule.
“Recently, we have received a request for Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday tribute project, and it is our honor to receive the request,” said BTS’s managing company, Big Hit Entertainment, on OSEN on July 19th.
The agency also said, “Unfortunately, BTS’s album will be released soon, and it will be difficult to participate because it is ahead of the world tour concert.“
Jerry L. Greenberg, former president of Michael Jackson’s label, posted a video saying that he is preparing a project to commemorate the 60th birthday anniversary of Michael Jackson and that BTS has been invited to join the project.
On another note, BTS announced their repackage album LOVE YOURSELF: Answer, which will be released on August 24th. The album ranked first in the CD & Vinyl bestseller category on Amazon on July 19th (local time).
