When popular K-pop group BTS put up a YouTube livestream on their BANGTANTV channel originally titled “What’s melting?” on Apr 26, fans were on the edge of their seats.

The one-hour livestream depicted a cube of animated butter with BTS’ logo on it slowly melting while sounds of fizzling butter being heated up. As the 60-minute countdown decreased in numbers, the butter melted to form a heart shape and slid off screen to reveal the release date and time for BTS’ newest single — Butter.

Butter will be released on May 21, 1pm KST (12pm, Singapore time). With over 12 million views on the hour long livestream reveal of animated butter melting, you can bet that the actual song will be met with overwhelming love and support from fans.

Since the drop of their first English hit Dynamite in Aug 2020, Butter will be K-pop group’s second English song.
