After the much-anticipated video of BTS’ “Butter” was released on Youtube today, it immediately took the world by a storm as it smashed the Youtube Premiere Record with an estimated 3.89 million concurrent views.
What Happened: The teaser of the song was dropped earlier this week, and even got a stamp of approval from one of history’s most iconic musical acts, the British band Queen. “We never actually expected that we were going to release another single, but the virus is getting longer and longer so we thought we need another summer song. We thought we needed another summer number, and ‘Butter’ was perfectly fit for that. And now we’re here,” BTS’ leader RM told Apple Music.
The Response: Fans were absolutely thrilled by the news.
What Next: BTS will be performing their TV debut for ‘Butter’ at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards. The awards, hosted by Nick Jonas, will be held on Sunday, May 23. It will be aired live on NBC from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
