Ahead of their performance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, BTS have shared which artists they’ve been listening to while getting fit.
Being a BTS fan is the easiest job in the world. Every day, there’s some new story about the group, some little tidbit. During an interview with Radio.com on Thursday, March 11th, the group eagerly spilled the beans on their favourite current music.
Exciting new duo – and fellow Grammy performers – Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) were given a big shoutout for their debut single ‘Leave the Door Open’. Imagine you’ve only released one song and the biggest band in the world give you the seal of approval. Must be nice.
It was Queen Ariana Grande that BTS were most excited about though, the group revealing that her latest album Positions is constantly accompanying their workouts. One of Position’s bonus tracks, ‘Test Drive’, was specifically cited.
“We’re listening to Bruno Mars and Anderson’s Silk Sonic new song. And one thing is that Ariana [Grande]’s new album is the best for the treadmill,” RM said.”The tempo and her voice is amazing.”
This weekend is all set to be a huge one for BTS. Not only are they performing during the Grammy ceremony but they’re also in with a chance of walking away with an award: their mammoth hit ‘Dynamite’ is nominated for best pop duo/group performance in a competitive field also containing Lady Gaga and Grande herself (Rain on Me) and Taylor Swift and Bon Iver (Exile).
That nomination was BTS’s first ever Grammy nomination and most certainly won’t be their last. It won’t be their first time performing though, the group having joined Lil Nas X for a star-studded performance of ‘Old Town Road’ last year.
Why not follow their example and pop on Ariana the next time you hit up the gym? Maybe it’s the boost that will make the treadmill not feel so daunting.
