BTS Talks About “Butter” Comeback, Grammy Goals, Upcoming Plans, And More

Jungkook continued, “‘Butter’ is really simple. The weather will continue to get hot, and I hope will many people will enjoy with BTS’s ‘Butter.’ I think that will be enough.”
On participating in the lyrics and rap making for the song, RM revealed that he was chosen through a blind test. “‘Butter’ was a song that very complete. However, there were rap parts that didn’t suit us, so I participated thinking that it would be good to adjust them to our style.”
J-Hope explained about the choreography, “The song is energetic and cute, so we maintained that in the performance also.” He chose parts such as blowing a kiss and slicking hair back as key points of the choreography. “The unit choreography is charming, so I hope you’ll watch out for that.”
Speaking on the “Butter” music video, Jin emphasized, “We filled our love for ARMY in the music video,” adding that he made an “A” with his body together with Jungkook.
About their upcoming first performance of “Butter” at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, Suga commented, “The first performance is always exciting and nerve-racking. The Billboard Music Awards is an awards show that is meaningful to us, so I’m glad we’re able to show our first performance there.”
When asked if they’re aiming for a Grammy Award with the English-language single “Butter,” Suga responded, “I don’t think we can say that we didn’t think that. We still wish to win a Grammy and will take on the challenge. I hope there will be good results.” RM added, “We want to try our hardest to take on the challenge.”
BTS was also asked about their upcoming eighth anniversary in June. V commented, “Our eighth anniversary is meaningful, and I’m very happy about it, but it’s too bad that we’ll have to hold events without seeing ARMY.”
RM concluded about their upcoming plans, “I think first of all we’ll have to do well with ‘Butter’ and work hard on preparing FESTA. Because of the current situation [of the pandemic], we have been preparing in order to interact with fans more closely, so I hope everyone will look forward to it.”
