BTS Member Jungkook Covers David Guetta & Justin Bieber’s “2U”
It’s only a matter of time before BTS member Jungkook blesses us with an English-language solo project. The group’s standout vocalist went viral earlier this year with a cover of Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez’s “We Don’t Talk Anymore” and now repeats the feat with a gorgeous acoustic version of David Guetta and Justin Bieber’s “2U.” His pronunciation and intonation is flawless, and the arrangement is suitably romantic. At this rate, JK will soon be famous in America for more than his “manner hands.”
Of course, Jungkook’s plan for world domination will have to wait for a while. BTS is releasing a new album called Love Yourself ‘Her’ on September 18. The album is #1 on Amazon’s CD chart (based on pre-sales) and could become the first K-Pop album to crack the top 10 on the Billboard 200. The group’s last album, Wings, debuted at number 26 — but their profile is much higher now. Since then, they have toured the US, appeared at the Billboard Music Awards and been endorsed by everyone from The Chainsmokers to Charli XCX. Momentum is on their side.
