Big Hit Entertainment’s idol groups BTS and TXT may be brother groups but they are apparently signed to different labels in the US.
And the interesting part is that the US labels that distribute the K-Pop groups’ music are rivals. As many BTS fans may be aware, the group’s music is currently being distributed by Columbia Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment. However, TXT’s music distributor has been revealed to be Republic Records, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.
Republic Records made an announcement after TXT’s debut, which you can see below.
Given that Republic Records is distributing TXT’s music, it is highly likely that physical copies of their album will be available for purchase in stores across the US.
Stay tuned for updates!
