Their international fame is skyrocketing and their names are on the tips of everyone’s tongue. Being one of the biggest sensations within the music industry today, many fans and artists are curious about just what makes BTS so exclusive?
I am honored to say that I spoke with the genius, platinum music composer Melanie Fontana, who helped create one of the hit tracks “Euphoria” which is performed by talented vocalist and visual member Jungkook from their recent album release. Melanie gave me an understanding of what it takes to create such a top-selling album and the emotions behind it!
Melanie Fontana, a famous LA-based composer who has produced hit songs for artists such as Britney Spears, Justin Beiber and The ChainSmokers to name a few, was fortunate enough to work alongside BTS for their latest album and even stated it was a huge highlight of her musical career. In the past, Melanie has worked with multiple Korean artists (who might be familiar to some) such as Girls’ Generation, FX and more.
Melanie’s interest in the K-Pop industry is only growing and after working with BTS she has a craving to do more in the Korea music scene! Take a moment to read what makes Melanie tick, how she worked alongside BTS and what new things she has in store for us with our fun interview!
