BTS Jungkook’s voice can change like a chameleon depending on the genre, it’s no wonder he’s the main vocalist.
Let’s take a look at how his voice can change and adapt to any style of music!
Jungkook’s voice has an autotune quality to it that blends well with strong EDM beats like Steve Aoki’s “Waste it on Me” featuring BTS.

In a more future base track like “Euphoria,” Jungkook’s vocals sound more fresh and bright. DJ Swivel shares Jungkook’s live singing without any instruments, revealing his solid vocals.

Jungkook’s also good at making an airy voice, which makes him a perfect match for pop vocals like Lauv‘s “Who.”

Lauv even chose Jungkook’s adlib to be the most surprising part in “Who.”

Although many people think of pop songs when they think of Jungkook’s voice, he’s actually really good at ballads too! Jungkook previously revealed that emotions are the most important when it comes to singing, and it truly shows when he sings ballads.
Jungkook’s cover of Roy Kim‘s “Only Then” shows his wide range of emotions that can be felt in deeper songs.

And just to give you a comparison between Jungkook’s singing voice and regular voice, here’s a cute clip of bunny Jungkook talking to himself while fishing.
“Ah so cute…there’s fish here? Are you heavy? No? Are you a light one? Are you light too? How about you? Ah you are quite heavy! How do I tie this again? I forgot…You put it in like this…Ah how do I do this. I guess I’ll figure it out while doing it…”
