BTS's Friends was sung by Jimin and V for their album, Map Of The Soul:7, and will be incorporated in Marvel's Eternals soundtrack.
BTS cruised through 2021 with songs such as Butter, Permission To Dance and My Universe raging through Billboard Top 100. And now, the K-Pop band will add another feat into their overflowing achievement. BTS member’s song Friends will be a part of the Marvel movie Eternals soundtrack. The song was sung by Jimin and V for their album, Map Of The Soul:7. Previously, Marvel News released a list of songs that were comprised in the soundtrack, and one of them had Friends, besides Time By Pink Floyd, Celina Sharma’s Nach Mera Hero and Juice By Lizzo.
Australia-born Celina Sharma has before collaborated with Indian rapper Emiway Bantai and was capped the BBC’s Future Sound winner in 2019. However, it is not evident if Nach Mera Hero is a pre-existing work or something she debuted for Eternals.
ARMY deems this a big moment for BTS, particularly Jimin and V (VMin as they’re called) as this is their first alliance with the studio. Fans have been bombarding Twitter with congratulatory messages. “Friends by VMIN in marvel movie??!! IM SO PROUD OF PRODUCER JIMIN PRODUCER JIMIN,” one fan tweeted. Another inscribed, “Producer Jimin, so proud of you, as Jimin is a Marvel fan too and he is celebrating!”
“Friends is such a special song for both of vmin as jimin wrote it about their precious friendship & to see it selected as a Marvel movie soundtrack is really huge… I’m extremely proud of him,” another wrote.
