BTS Talks about Their New English Single "Butter" with Billboard
On May 19, the Billboard magazine shared an interview they recently had with BTS, with all seven members - RM, Jungkook, J-Hope, Jin, Suga, Jimin, and V - present.
Billboard's Tetris Kelly spoke to BTS about their upcoming English single "Butter." He asked the boy group about the difference between "Dynamite," their first full English-language song, and "Butter."
BTS J-Hope answered that the recording process went smooth for "Butter." He added that their two English-language singles are different from each other, with "Butter" focusing more on each of the members' charms.
Earlier this month, BTS leader RM told Rolling Stone that "Butter" will be "very summery" and "very energetic." He also revealed that the song will have a "very dynamic performance."
RM, in fact, co-wrote "Butter" together with Stephen Kirk, Ron Perry, Jenna Andrews, Alex Bilowitz, Rob Grimaldi, and Sebastian Garcia.
BTS is set to perform "Butter" at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards. The boys are even finalists in four categories at the show: Top Selling Song, Top Social Artist, Top Duo/Group, and Top Song Sales Artist.
During the interview, Billboard's Tetris Kelly asked the septet which category they are most excited about. BTS Jungkook answered, "All of them." He explained that all of the categories are meaningful so they are looking forward to each of them.
