Their latest feat is proof of the same. Recently, the setpet — RM, Jimin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jin and Jungkook — announced their new English single, titled Butter. While the song will be released on May 21, it has already got fans excited. The K-pop band is also making sure to keep up with their excitement by giving them hints about the song.
Recently, the band released the trailer logo of their second English song. The trailer is an hour long video of a melting animated blob of butter.

The video begins with a rectangular blob of butter which later melts to become a heart after an hour. The video has garnered over 13 million views so far. You can watch it here:
Reacting to the video of the trailer logo, a fan wrote, “armys are the only fandom that would stare at a piece of digital butter melting for 1 hour.” “BTS: creates a video of butter melting. 13M people: interesting,” wrote another. “In a month from now, a song called Butter will take the world by storm. Let’s do this,” a third user commented on the YouTube video.
Butter is their second English single following “Dynamite”, which released in August last year. The song is a dance pop track that promises to cater the smooth yet charismatic charm that the group is loved for.
