Besides saying gems like, “If the Queen knighted me, it would be less of an honor than being onstage with BTS” (wow, MOOD…if I had her songwriting skills), she also offered her two cents on what makes a song distinctly BTS: “I feel like it’s the really beautiful mixture of masculinity and femininity that they’re so unabashedly known for. They’re not afraid to use what some people would call more feminine-sounding melodies because they make it their own. I think that that’s what’s so sexy about them. They go for almost ethereal melodies that you wouldn’t necessarily write for a male boy band.”
BTW, Melanie also cowrote “Mikrokosmos” off of their latest album, Map of the Soul: Persona (which is my favorite, and no wonder why!!!), Jungkook’s solo track “Euphoria” off of their Love Yourself: Answer album, ***and*** she’s written for Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Girls’ Generation, and more. THE GIRL’S GOT TALENT.
