BTS has released a new version of “Butter”.
BTS released the remix and music video of “Butter” at 1am today (28th). The song is a reinterpretation of the original song with house-based electro dance music, and the “Hotter” version offers a different and exquisite charm from the original song with a bright and fun atmosphere. The music video has already surpassed 7 million views within a few hours of its release.
BTS also posted a remix teaser photo of “Butter” on their official SNS. The concept and composition of the photos are different from the first and second teaser photos that were released earlier, and the members’ personalities are incorporated. The seven members in gorgeous stage costumes showed off their quirky charms with different poses and expressions.
The music video for “Butter” was released simultaneously around the world on the 21st, and has been breaking various records since its release. The music video for “Butter” had over 3.9 million simultaneous viewers when it was first released, setting a new record for the most viewed YouTube premiere music video of all time, and was viewed 108.2 million times in the first 24 hours, making it the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours. Both of these records were recently entered into the Guinness World Records in the UK. On Spotify, the world’s largest music streaming service, the video received 20.9 million global streams on its first day of release, setting a new record for the most global streams in a single day in Spotify history.
While “Butter” is booming all over the world, it is especially noteworthy in the United States. According to the U.S. popular entertainment media Variety, “Butter” was aired on all 180 radio stations in the U.S. in the Top 40 format, which covers the most popular pop songs. BTS is the first foreign artist to achieve this kind of success with a new song.
