BTS has entered into an agreement with Universal Music Group as their distributor and marketing in the United States.
Previously, BTS was rumored to be leaving Columbia Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music, after contracting with them for 3 years.
Now on October 22 local time, HYBE confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that they had parted ways with Columbia Records and signed a contract with Universal Music Group.
As HYBE put it, “While we greatly value our time with Sony and will forever be grateful for all they have and will continue to do, we look forward to our new chapter in our partnership with Universal.”
Previously, Universal Music Group had handled the distribution of BTS’s Japanese albums through their subsidiary Universal Music Japan.
