K-pop stars BTS release uplifting summer song 'Butter' Updated: 2021-05-22 09:48:25 KST

BTS are back.
The K-pop boyband returned on Friday with their new digital single "Butter."

"Side step right left to my beat (heartbeat)
Get it, let it roll
Smooth like butter
Pull you in like no other"

"Butter" is the group's second English-language song, following last year's smash hit "Dynamite."
That song topped global music charts and landed a grammy nomination last summer, and BTS will be hoping their latest track can dominate this summer's music charts.

"I just hope a lot of people can enjoy this summer with the new BTS song "Butter." That's enough for me."

The band will perform "Butter" live for the first time at the 28th Billboard Music Awards this Sunday U.S. time, where they are nominated for awards in four categories.
Until then, for the group's fanbase, ARMY who plan on playing "Butter" on a constant loop, here are three things to look out for in the music video.
Number one the dancing in the video's elevator scene wasn't pre-choreographed.
For this scene, the members were all given the freedom to freestyle so each dance could show off their unique charm.

"I hope you completely fall into our charms and individuality."

Number two the special shout out to ARMY.
In the music video, BTS show their appreciation for their fans by using their bodies to spell out the word "ARMY," the name of their fan club.
During a press conference on Friday, Jungkook joked that he and Jin put their heads together to figure out how to make the perfect "A." quite literally.
Last but not least, RM.
The leader of the group, RM put pen to paper to help write some of the song's catchy lyrics.
He has been quite vague about which parts were his work, so fans will have to watch the video and guess which lines have his signature all over them.
Within less than five hours of its release, the music video has already topped 40 million views.
