BTS Butter music video: RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook's new song is smooth like butter
BTS has finally released their highly-anticipated song Butter. The track is the group's second all-English song after their Grammy-nominated number Dynamite.
Members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook delivered a summer dance-pop track with Butter. While the music instantly leaves you grooving in your seat, the video features some easy to replicate dance moves. The members also give a nod to their fandom, popularly known as the ARMY.
Ahead of the song's premiere on YouTube, members were seen participating in a cooking-related segment, counting down to the release of the song. In the segment, reminding us of their Run BTS variety show, singer Jin doubled up as the host and gave fellow members tasks to perform. While Suga, V and Jungkook were in one team, RM, Jimin and J-Hope were in the other.
BTS members have confirmed that they will be having Butter's debut performance at this year's Billboard Music Awards. Confirming the news, BTS had previously tweeted, "We can’t hold it in any longer! Our debut performance of “#BTS_Butter” will be at this year’s @BBMAs! Watch on Sunday, May 23rd at 8pm ET/5pm PT."
Before the release, the members revealed their new styles, hinting at the retro vibe. RM announced the return of the 'Pink Joon' era, a nickname that fans gave him when he first coloured his hair pink. J-Hope also returned to one of his old looks, sporting a blonde hairdo. Jin and Suga sported their natural black hair. Jimin surprised fans with his multi-coloured hairstyle, V opted for an undercut and Jungkook coloured his tresses purple, sporting a short ponytail.
The new song has been released less than a year after they released Dynamite. The song, which released in August, debuted on the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 before it broke several records. The group performed the song on various platforms, including award functions like American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards and Grammys, and late-night shows such as The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Jimmy Fallon Show.
