'Left and Right': Jungkook to release first solo song outside of BTS with Charlie Puth
Looks like the conjecture is finally coming to an end and BTS' golden maknae Jungkook is soon going to be the first BTS member to make his solo debut after the group announced that Chapter 2 of BTS will have the members focus on solo activities. The boy group sat down for a team dinner at BTS' 9th-anniversary celebration event and may have committed one of the biggest blunders in the history of BTS.
Not BTS per se, but their company who uploaded the BTS Festa video on YouTube had their words mistranslated into English subtitles that imposed that the member was bidding a farewell to the boy group after being tired of being in it for the last decade. The comments in the video also suggested that BTS members were ready to start their solo journey and one particular comment from Jungkook stated that BTS will be coming back "someday" but it is time for them to look at their solo careers for now.
Jungkook to release his solo track 'Left and Right'
As expected, the entire K-pop fandom, as well as the international music industry, was confused as fans associated this hiatus with the end of BTS only for Jungkook to host a live stream on VLive on June 16 to let fans know that BTS was not going anywhere but were here to stay forever. Now, as that issue is seemingly dying down, fans are ready to witness the next chapter of BTS. With Chapter 1 starting from 2013 and ending with their first anthology album 'Proof', fans are more than excited to see the boys making their well-deserved solo debuts for the second Chapter in the journey of BTS.
Maknae Jungkook, who had boasted amazing vocals with the boy group, will be the first BTS member to kickstart his solo debut by releasing a new single 'Left and Right'. On June 17, it was reported that Jungkook of BTS will be releasing his first solo song in collaboration with the American singer-songwriter Charlie Puth. A few weeks ago, when BTS paid a visit to the United States of America, fans noticed that Charlie Puth was reposting a lot of BTS' activities. Since this was ahead of their comeback with 'Proof', fans were thinking that the singer was going to be a part of the album in some way.
Soon after, Puth appeared at the iHeart Radio Wango Tango concert and practically confirmed that he had worked with BTS, and his collab will soon be released. Jungkook has been a fan of the international singer and has performed with him in the past, which is why fans did not take another second and were sure that it is the BTS' youngest member who was working on a new song with Charlie Puth.

The video ends with Puth saying, "This song is going to be really cool." It has been reported that Jungkook's new collab with Puth put will drop on June 24.

For the stage performance, Jungkook sang the parts that belonged to Selena and shocked fans all over the world all thanks to his mesmerizing vocals.
