With their top-selling hits like ‘Dynamite,’ ‘Life Goes On,’ and the parent projects that birthed them (‘BE,’ ‘Map of the Soul’), BTS‘ short but storied career has already seen them collect stats that put them in Billboard history books alongside the greats.
Now, the K-Pop hitmakers are about to see their name penciled along another hallowed music hall: ‘MTV Unplugged.’
The iconic TV special, which has seen the likes of Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill, Maxwell, George Michael, Shakira, Alanis Morissette, and a host of other legendary acts grace its stage over the years, will see BTS become the latest to bless the platform with stripped/acoustic versions of their greatest hits.
Airing February 23 at 9PM ET, MTV announced BTS will take to the recently revived series just days after the February 19 release of the ‘Essential Edition’ of their chart-topping 2020 album, ‘BE.’
The network took to press to say:
“BTS will bring its own iteration of the iconic Unplugged format to life straight from Seoul, South Korea – offering their fans a front-row seat to never-before-seen versions of the group’s most career-defining hits and songs from their latest album ‘BE (Essential Edition)’ in intimate settings.”
BTS comes as the latest among today’s top Pop stars to visit ‘Unplugged’ and follow a slew of modern day chart-toppers that includes Shawn Mendes, Miley Cyrus, and more.
