BTS‘s RM is known for his stellar music recommendations on Twitter, so when RM shared Canadian singer Bahamas‘s track “All I’ve Ever Known” the song instantly became a hit with A.R.M.Ys.

He later tweeted another thank you to A.R.M.Ys and BTS_twt for the positivity and “openness and generosity to share”, while pointing out music’s ability to connect cultures.
So crazy to see how music can connect different cultures oceans apart. Thank you to everyone sending such positive messages and to @BTS_twt for your openness and generosity to share. https://t.co/s1Gx9sQrwg

…And fans showered him with even more love, retweeting and liking the tweet more than 30,000 times – and thanking him for the music.
I was so happy to find new music that I genuinely liked. Like #RM always says, "Music transcends cultures, races, langauges…it's the universal language"

A.R.M.Ys have also taken over the comments section of “All I’ve Ever Known”‘s Youtube video, which now has more than 1.8 million views (an increase of over 400,000).
- “So mellow and calming….. thank you RM”
- “Who’s here because of Namjoon?”
- “I come here cause RM. Who else?”
- “ARMYS ARE LIGHTNING QUICK OMG + this song is so good omg!!”
- “Okay who’s here because of Namjoon???? This song is so calming”
- “This is RM’s fault… just joking but this song is lit.”
- “RM always recommends good music though!”
- “Namjoon’s music taste is amazing, wow”
While some A.R.M.Ys are not surprised by the sudden popularity of Bahamas’s songs thanks to RM, it seems to be his specific tweet about the universality of music that spoke to fans.
Yes, that's the power of the music.. Thanks to them, I could appreciate the music beyond the language, gender or culture. They are a clear example that the love for music transcends any barrier#TeenChoice #BTSARMY #ChoiceFandom @BTS_twt
