Fans have been expecting a collaboration between BTS and Chris Martin ever since Jin teased one with a foreign artist on his most recent VLive.

The Permission to Dance challenge started on July 23. BTS members encouraged their fans to make a 15-second dance video that must feature the signs of Peace, Joy, and dance, just like the original music video.

BTS member J-Hope had spoken about the challenge to People, saying:

"Incorporating the International Sign gestures enabled us to spread the positive energy of our music to a wider audience that maybe we haven't reached before."

Jin and Suga also shared their thoughts about the challenge, saying to Buzzfeed:

"I am curious about how they will add their own tastes and touch to the 'Permission to Dance' choreography. But honestly, just watching them dance along to our song and having fun makes me really happy."

Speaking to EFE, Suga added:

"We want to share our message through music and have a positive impact on our listeners."

Recently, the band had canceled their Map of the Soul tour, a series of concerts set to take place in North America, after postponing it due to COVID-19. On different occasions, each member of BTS had mentioned how much they missed performing live for the ARMY.
