According to American media outlets, BTS made submissions to at least four categories, including collaborative songs with foreign artists, for next year’s Grammy Awards in February.
The 65th Grammys will award artists who’ve released songs between Oct. 1, 2021, and Sept. 30, 2022. The main categories include Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist.
BTS’s submissions include “Yet To Come” (2021) from its anthology album “Proof,” “My Universe” (2022), a collaborative track between BTS and Coldplay, “Left and Right” (2022), a collaborative track between Jungkook and Charlie Puth and “Bad Decisions” (2022) by Jin, V, Jungkook, and Jimin in collaboration with Benny Blanco and Snoop Dogg in the categories of Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
The four songs are reported to also be submitted for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance award. Established in 2012, the award recognizes artist excellence in a duo, group, or collaborative vocal or instrumental pop performance. The band was previously nominated in the category for its songs “Dynamite” (2020) and “Butter” (2021).
The band also submitted “Yet to Come,” “Bad Decisions” and “Left and Right” for Best Music Video.
The official nominations will be announced on Nov. 15.
All BTS members will enlist for their mandatory military service, in turn, their agency HYBE announced earlier this month. The eldest member Jin will be the first to join the army, although specific dates of his enlistment have not been announced.
