BTS sailed through 2021 with songs like Butter, Permission To Dance and My Universe raging through Billboard Top 100. And now, the K-Pop band will add another feather into their overflowing cap. BTS member’s song Friends will be a part of the Marvel film Eternals soundtrack. The song was sung by Jimin and V for their album, Map Of The Soul:7. Recently, Marvel News shared a list of songs that were included in the soundtrack, and one of them included Friends, besides Time By Pink Floyd, Celina Sharma’s Nach Mera Hero and Juice By Lizzo.
Australia-born Celina Sharma has earlier teamed up with Indian rapper Emiway Bantai and was crowned the BBC’s Future Sound winner in 2019. However, it is not clear if Nach Mera Hero is a pre-existing work or something she debuted for Eternals.
