The outfit's first Live Lounge performance comes after BTS performed a viral set for MTV Unplugged in March.
K-Pop icons BTS have transformed Puff Daddy and Faith Evans' 1997 hit ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ during their BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge debut.
The Grammy-winning original featured the Bad Boy boss and Biggie's widow, Evans, as well as 112 singing over a sample of the Police's 1993 hit 'Every Breath You Take.'
The hugely popular South Korean boyband delivered an emotionally charged take on the track for the new session, but added a rock flare with electric guitars and drums.
The performance also saw the group delivering live renditions of ‘Dynamite’ and ‘Permission To Dance’.
BTS fans can expect a special documentary on BTS titled BTS @ Radio 1 , which will be released tomorrow (July 28) on BBC One.
Last week, BTS became the first artists to replace themselves at No. 1 on the Hot 100 since Drake in 2018. New single ‘Permission to Dance’ ended the seven-week chart-topping streak of previous single ‘Butter’, which is currently the second longest No. 1 Hot 100 song of this year.
