According to reports, "Butter" has an unfiltered global stream of 20.9 million and 11.042 million filtered global streams on the day of its release. If the numbers are combined and accurately recorded, "Butter" could be the most-stream song ever in the history of Spotify.

The new digital single, "Butter" was released on May 21, 2021, at 13:00 Korea Standard Time or 12 midnight Eastern Standard Time. Its label, HYBE reported previously that the single is sure to melt the hearts of ARMYs.
