In June, speaking to PopCrush, Chris Martin didn't dismiss the possibility of a future collaboration with BTS. He had said, "When it comes to BTS, I just have nothing but love and respect for them. All seven guys, I think they're just cool, stand for good things and sing about cool things. I love the fact that they are so huge and sing a lot in Korean, they don't always have to sing in English. I love them a lot and so if the right song came along, I wouldn't ever say no."
Meanwhile, BTS unveiled their latest song Permission to Dance, an upbeat track about spreading happiness through dance and music, last week. The new track is part of the K-pop group's CD single Butter, which also includes their chartbuster number and the instrumental versions of the two songs. The band collaborated with British musician Ed Sheeran and producer Steve Mac for the song.
BTS performed the new track on July 13 on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, marking their live debut of the song on a US television show. The K-pop group's hit track Butter has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for seven consecutive weeks, which marks their longest run on the No.1 spot.
