Here’s what the founder of MJ5, R Kartik has to say,
While our dance work has been largely influenced by international artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown and Usher. We have also been very fond of BTS and the cult legacy they have carved for themselves as a boy band in the millennial age. As creative artists, we never wanted to restrict ourselves to just dance and wanted to explore other avenues within the creative gamut. Our vision is to be one of the best millennial powerhouse boy band sensations and India’s answer to BTS & K-Pop music. Our debut track is an ode to all the heroes out there who emerged like warriors from a tumultuous 2020 and dived into 2021 with gratitude and optimism, looking towards a promising future devoid of restrictions and dismay. That darkness is behind you, and only happiness is ahead.
