BTS’ Suga Reveals How Long It Took To Write ‘Telepathy’: ‘It Was Easy’

Several BTS members had a hand at writing and producing songs from Be (Deluxe Edition.) V co-wrote “Blue & Grey,” while Suga, J-Hope, and RM teamed up for the title track, “Life Goes On.” 

Here’s what the dancer and rapper, Suga, had to say about creating “Telepathy,” one of the songs BTS performed on MTV Unplugged.

BTS’ Suga co-wrote and co-produced ‘Telepathy’ from ‘Be (Deluxe Edition)’

Suga may be a savage rapper and talented dancer, but he’s also a writer and producer for the K-pop group BTS. When it came to the group’s 2020 release, Be (Deluxe Edition,) Suga was behind the song “Telepathy,” in addition to his role with the song “Life Goes On.”

“I tried a melody for the first time this year (2020), and as I started knowing the fun of music, it opened a lot of new doors for me,” Suga said during an interview with Weverse Magazine. “So, it was kind of easy working on it. 

“I just played a beat and wrote from the beginning until the end. Done,” he continued. “I wrote it in just 30 minutes. The song almost wrote itself. The trends of pop and hip-hop these days cross boundaries between vocals and rap. I like this trend.”

Suga discussed ‘Telepathy’ when BTS performed on ‘MTV Unplugged’

Although BTS is socially distant from fans, the group had to chance to perform some recently released songs with their MTV Unplugged segment. Of course, their setlist included “Dynamite,” BTS’ first Grammy-nominated single.

The group performed “Blue & Grey” and “Telepathy” from Be (Deluxe Edition,) marking the first time they performed these “b-side” tracks for fans. (This was also one of the first performances featuring Suga since his shoulder surgery and subsequent recovery.) Additionally, they did a cover of “Fix You” by Coldplay.

Suga co-wrote and co-produced several BTS songs

“Telepathy” isn’t the only song written and produced by Suga. According to BTS Fandom, Suga has songwriting credits for “Boy In Luv,” as well as producing credits for songs like “Make It Right,” “Boy With Luv,” “ON,” and “Outro: Tear.”

During one interview with Jimmy Fallon, Suga even shared that if he wasn’t in BTS, he would probably be a songwriter or producer. Aside from his work with the award-winning K-pop group, BTS, Suga also releases solo music under the stage name Agust D. 

He appeared on songs by other artists, including Halsey’s “Suga’s Interlude” for the album titled Manic. The “Life Goes On” music video, featuring Suga and the other BTS members, is now available on YouTube. 

Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
