Not quite two weeks after BTS stated that they would be taking some time to work on separate projects, Jungkook has stepped out on his own to collaborate with Charlie Puth for the cheerful new track “Left and Right,” which was released first thing on Friday morning (June 24).
Puth and the BTS vocalist sing over a catchy rhythm in the song’s chorus, which is around two minutes and fifty-five seconds long. The lyrics are as follows: “Memories follow me left and right/ I can feel you over here/ I can feel you over here/ You take up every corner of my head.”
Puth and the youngest member of BTS may be seen in a group setting and solo shots in the teaser for the music video released on Thursday. The pair has also promised an animated music video that will be released shortly. Ruth promised the week before last that he would release the Jungkook collaboration on June 24 if he amassed 500,000 pre-saves for the song, and it is obvious that ARMY came through for him.
The song “Left and Right” is Charlie Puth’s third release of 2022, and it is the third single from his upcoming third solo album, which will be named Charlie and released by Atlantic Records later this year. The pop singer and composer debuted “Light Switch” in January, reaching a high of No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In April, they released “That’s Hilarious,” which followed “Light Switch.”
On June 14, BTS stunned fans when they announced that they would be going on a sabbatical to concentrate on separate projects. However, Jungkook swiftly reassured the concerned ARMY that the group would not be disbanding. In a Livestream video, Jungkook reportedly assured fans that even though the boys will spend time concentrating on their personal projects, they will not stop working together as a team and are not disbanding. This was according to a representative for the group.
