BTS will release ‘Butter’ on May 21

On April 26 at 10 a.m. EDT, a mysterious livestream started on the BANGTANTV YouTube channel. The livestream lasted for an hour, and during the livestream fans watched as an animated stick of butter melted into the shape of a heart.

At 11 a.m. EDT on April 26, the livestream showed the official logo for the single “Butter” and revealed that Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook will release the single on May 21 at midnight EDT and 1 p.m. KST.

Jungkook and RM of BTS released concept clips for ‘Butter’

On May 1, Big Hit Music released the first concept clip for “Butter,” a poster containing seven photographs. The seven images show yellow balloons with smiley faces, heart-shaped confetti on the floor, a drink being poured, toast with a heart, a camera with film, spilled gummy candy, and a crushed lollipop.

Concept clips for RM and Jungkook were released on May 3 at 11 a.m. EDT. Based on the new concept clips for RM and Jungkook, one can deduce that each image on the concept poster represents one of the members.

In Jungkook’s clip, the BTS singer spreads butter on toast, makes faces at the camera, and dances. RM paces back and forth in front of the camera, taps his foot repeatedly, turns on a lamp in the room, and shoots off a confetti popper. Both concept clips for RM and Jungkook feature blue and pink lighting and the same instrumental music.

Because Jungkook’s teaser clip includes the toast and RM’s teaser features the red confetti, one can assume the other BTS members will interact with the yellow balloons, drink, camera, gummy candy, and lollipop in their concept clips.
