BTS to Release Second English Song “Butter”

The song will debut on May 21.

Globally beloved K-pop group BTS has announced the release of a single entirely in English, set for May 21. On Sunday, April 26, fans learned about “Butter” via a suspenseful YouTube live stream. Following the smash hit “Dynamite,” the new single will be the second English-language song from BTS, a testament to the group’s cross-national appeal. “Butter” will be “a dance pop track brimming with the smooth yet charismatic charm of BTS,” as per a press release quoted in Billboard. BTS does dance pop perfectly, and it sounds like this track will be incredibly butter-smooth, melting in the heat on summer dance floors.

This announcement comes at an exciting time for the performers of BTS, who will also take part in an upcoming McDonald’s campaign highlighting the go-to meals of famous customers. Their pick? A McNugget meal with medium fries and a medium drink, along with sweet chili and Cajun dipping sauces in a nod to the group’s South Korean heritage. Since the BTS x McDonald’s campaign will launch on May 26, just a few days after the release of “Butter,” some fans are already speculating that the new song might be featured in the promo. Whatever the case, it’s likely to be a massive commercial success and maybe even a strong contender for the coveted “song of the summer” title this year.

While you count down the days until the release of “Butter,” jam out to the hit song “Dynamite.”
