"When it all seems like it's right, I sing along to @bts_bighit #PermissionToDance" This is indeed some major appreciation coming from the music legend, directed at the popular South Korean boy band, who continue to take over the globe with their undeniable talent. BTS even humbly retweeted Elton's kind words (the tweet has already accumulated a staggering 799k likes so far) to them.
