If the new teaser photos are any indication, BTS’ song “Butter” is about to become the song of the summer, perhaps the song of 2021. On May 16, Big Hit Music released a new set of teaser photos for the upcoming BTS song. With the new photos, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook blew fans away with their visuals and gave another preview of the aesthetic for “Butter.”

The first teaser image for “Butter” was shared on social media on May 9. In the photo, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook stand together while wearing formal attire. Multiple BTS members also debuted new hair colors in the group teaser photo.
RM revealed pink hair in the group teaser, J-Hope dyed his hair yellow, Jungkook posed with his purple hair tied in a ponytail, and Jimin dyed his hair blonde with pink and blue highlights. Jin, Suga, and V all sported dark hair.
