What Taylor Swift Thinks of BTS
Taylor Swift and BTS are two of the biggest artists in the world. Swift recently released her seventh album, Lover, and it had the largest first-week sales of any album in 2019. BTS is the first group since the Beatles to have three No. 1 albums in a year. Swift recently told a fan what she thinks of BTS.

At the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Swift met BTS. At the awards show, BTS won Top Social Artist. Swift met the group backstage and posted a photo with them on her Instagram.
She shared the photo again on her Instagram story and wrote, “BTS 4EVER” as the caption.
That night, Swift won Best Female Artist at the Billboard Music Awards. Both Swift and BTS are modern music legends. It seems the admiration between the two is mutual.
The members of BTS are fans of Taylor Swift
While Swift publicly declared her love for BTS after meeting them, BTS has shown their support of Swift’s music. Around the time BTS first debuted, V’s playlist featured two Swift songs from her Speak Now album. Jimin also said in a few early interviews he enjoyed Swift’s song, “Never Grow Up.”
At the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, multiple videos showed BTS enjoying Swift’s performance of her song, “ME!” After the awards show, BTS held a VLIVE for their fans. During the VLIVE, RM referenced Swift as BTS’s friend. Later in 2019, Jin showed fans that two of Swift’s songs from her new album were on his Spotify playlist.
