After a month long wait, BTS have blessed us with their hugely anticipated new single ‘Butter’ – and it is everything.
Following the global success of their hit single ‘Dynamite,’ ‘Butter’ is the follow-up second English single and has us weak at the knees. A happy-go-lucky dance track, its funky antidotes show its relations to their GRAMMY-nominated 2020 single but is oh so different at the same time. Maybe ‘Butter’ gets its name from the slick musical sandwich it is. The velvety vocals of Jimin, Jungkook, Jin, and V, are the bread with the charmingly catchy raps from SUGA, RM, and j-hope are the chunky filling, and the hooky chorus is the pièce de résistance special ingredient which brings it all together. It’s delicious to listen to and of course, as with any BTS music video, the visuals are equally appetizing.
In just 3 minutes, we are served an all-you-can-eat buffet of visuals from the Bangtan Boys. From suits to retro sporty outfits all topped off with bold and beautiful hairstyles that are ever-changing in every release, the music video is a real treat for the eyes. And where would we be without some iconic choreography? Well, that’s served up too, so grab a plate and tuck in because BTS are content kings and phenomenal artists who, despite being on top of the world, seem to keep climbing higher and higher, and we don’t even think they’ve reached their peak yet. Oh, and the true cherry on top? The shoutout to their beloved ARMY. Name a more iconic relationship – we’ll wait.
If you’re looking for a song of the summer, you’ve found it. ‘Butter’ cries out to be played while cruising in the car with the windows down, the song you play at parties, the go-to tune to vibe along to while doing the chores, the song you call in to request at your local radio station. We can already see it reaching the stars and beyond and if ‘Dynamite’ was a global success, we just know ‘Butter’ has every potential to exceed its sibling. Better get used to ‘Butter,’ because we can’t see it going anywhere anytime soon! And we’re absolutely 1000% okay with that.
