South Korean boy band BTS have dropped the video for their latest single “Permission to Dance” at midnight Friday.  In the video, viewers see the boys dancing in the desert while clad in denim and other clothing inspired by the Wild West, accessorized with cowboy hats and boots.

“Permission to Dance” is the band’s third song written entirely in English, following 2020’s “Dynamite” and “Butter,” which dropped in May. Ed Sheeran, Steve Mac, Jenna Andrews and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid co-wrote the song, which is part of the band’s “Butter” CD single, which is also out Friday and includes four tracks: “Butter,” “Permission to Dance,” “Butter (Instrumental) and “Permission to Dance (Instrumental).”

The music video for BTS’s hit song “Butter” was the biggest premiere in YouTube history, drawing in 3.9 million concurrent viewers for its May 21 premiere. That video also set a new all-time record for YouTube video views in the first 24 hours, garnering over 108.2 million in the first day.
