Recently, all the BTS members performed a live show of their latest album, Proof. The most adorable surprise was musician Anderson .Paak’s entry and it made for the most cheerful moment in the live session. The group members performed on Yet To Come with a special guest who could be seen playing the drums!
In a recently released video by Bangtan TV, the BTS members also sang for Born Sinner and For Youth. For the unversed, the anthology album Proof was released on June 10, 2022, a few days before the band marked its 9th debut anniversary. There were also rumors earlier about the BTS members collaborating with international artists like Snoop Dogg and Charlie Puth. So, there is no way that they are taking hiatus anytime soon!
