BTS May Be Releasing A New Single On July 9
While many people are still stuck with the catchy tune of "Butter," reports have said that pre-order platforms have titled BTS' upcoming new single as "Permission to Dance." This is not 100% confirmed yet as this speculation is making its rounds in social media after many of the ARMYs did their research while looking through various pre-order platforms.
Pre-orders for the "Butter" single album have now started today, June 15. The album's release date is also the same as the ARMY fan club's birthday, July 9. With pre-orders started, it's expected that many of BTS's loyal ARMYs will be buying this album as an addition to their ever-growing collection.
The new digital single, "Butter," was released on May 21, 2021, at 13:00 Korea Standard Time or 12 midnight Eastern Standard Time. HYBE previously reported that this single is sure to melt the hearts of ARMYs.
"Butter" is #1 in Spotify Japan. Second in the ranks is Yuri's song titled "Dry Flower," with 309,643 streams in the day, and third is BTS's other big hit, "Dynamite," at 299,210 streams in one day. It was recently reported that the song is the first in Spotify Japan's history to have received more than 500,000 streams in a day. It remained #1 in Billboard's HOT 100 for two weeks in a row.
A "Cooler" remix of their hit single "Butter" was also released. The music video features the Bangtan Boys showing their carefree side as they chill in the gym. This remix is notable for its refreshing guitar flair to the song. Aside from this awesome remix, the group released a "Sweeter" remix, giving "Butter" a smooth R&B vibe.
Aside from the mentioned music charts, "Butter" is also on the top of all the other Billboard charts like the K-pop 100, Global 200, Global, and Billboard Japan. Many are already expecting that the song will remain on the top of the charts for a long time, which is a similar case to the first English single, "Dynamite."
With this continuous momentum, there seems to be no stopping BTS from doing what they do.
