Exclusive interviews, performances, and images will be provided by the boy band sitting atop the Billboard 200 chart as part of the collaboration.
When SEVENTEEN was selected as the first Korean-pop artist for its MTV PUSH program last year, MTV made a solid effort to support the next central K-pop act worldwide. The chance resulted in the boy band from HYBE and PLEDIS Entertainment receiving their first MTV Europe Music Award and being nominated for best new artist at the 2022 VMAs.
FUTURE X TOGETHER is MTV’s upcoming featured Global PUSH Artist for April, which Billboard can exclusively disclose today. In an interview with the channel, the quintet will discuss musical influences, suggestions for up-and-coming musicians, and memorable moments from their careers as part of the partnership.
Also, TXT participated in a photo session and performed two brand-new songs, “Sugar Rush Ride” and “Devil by the Window,” from their No. 1 Billboard 200 album, The Name Chapter: TEMPTATION.
FUTURE X TOGETHER offered to advise singers aiming to break through as the newest PUSH artists to join alums like SZA, Lauv, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Khalid, Doja Cat, and others.
Consistency is crucial, TAEHYUN said. “Even if you end up doing something unrelated to music, having the ability to play an instrument is a great gift to yourself. So, I want to encourage being consistent with instruments.”
Added HUENINGKAI, “If you have a go at it and are consistent, you’ll grow a lot. With diligence, I believe you can achieve your dreams.”
BEOMGYU and YEONJUN discussed the bands who gave them solace and propelled them forward. “I listened to a lot of ABBA when I was young through my dad,” BEOMGYU said. “And I listen to them often when I need comfort or am alone.”
YEONJUN also said he “used to listen to ‘Eternal Sunshine’ by Jhene Aiko a lot during my trainee days. Those days weren’t so easy, and this song was a great help to me then.”
Keep an eye out for more MTV x TXT content in April. Later, as part of their Act: Sweet Mirage international tour, TOMORROW X TOGETHER returns to the United States in May for their most significant American performances before the HYBE and BIGHIT MUSIC boy band headlines Lollapalooza 2023 in Chicago this August.
