As Butter continues to make world records defeating Bangtan Boys’ previous records of themselves, the South Korean-based pop icons have a special message for ARMY (fans) in India. In an email interaction with Press Trust Of India, BTS member V on behalf of the band asked the ARMY in India to be strong and extended their prayers. “Our prayers are with India. Stay strong ARMY and let’s never lose hope,” BTS’ V said.

The septet including RM, Jin Suga, J Hope, Jimin and Jung Kook also reiterated that the song is a fun summer anthem that BTS wants ARMY to enjoy with everyone. “We wanted a summer song that we can enjoy together with ARMY and everyone. And ”Butter” was the perfect fit,” Jimin said. V added that Butter is a “song brimming with the charms of BTS, so I hope everyone enjoys it!” Butter has already shattered not one but several records becoming the fastest music video to cross the 100 million mark on YouTube worldwide.

BTS will be giving their first performance for Butter at Billboard Music Awards 2021 where they are nominated in four categories. They are also nominated in the top duo/group, top song sales artist, and top-selling song (“Dynamite”) categories. Dynamite was BTS’ first Billboard Hot 100 No 1 hit. “It is an honour to perform “Butter” at the BBMAs,” said Suga.

“One of the most memorable moments last year was when we got our first number one song on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. So it’s an honour to perform ”Butter” for the first time at the awards show that bears such a special meaning for us,” Suga added.

The mankae (youngest member) of the group, Jung Kook, said that he hopes ARMY likes their act. “As we always do, we prepared a spectacular performance for this year’s BBMAs too. So I hope our fans like it,” Jung Kook said.

BTS Leader RM reiterated that though their 2020 album Map of the Soul 7 missed getting a Grammy, that doesn’t mean “that song is less valuable. ‘ON’ and ‘Black Swan’ delivered a deep message that we held in our seventh year into our careers, and that itself is invaluable,” RM said.

Their label HYBE corporation recently acquired American record executive Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings, which had international artists like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato. J Hope teased ARMY of many surprises in future. “I honestly think possibilities are endless because all these things are not something that we did Alone, but we did together with our ARMY,” J Hope said.

On a parting note, Suga delivered what the future looks for the septet. He said, “We want to connect with everyone around the world with great music and stages, and keep going as a group.”
