A few days after the English-language track dropped, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook released a remix of the song called “Butter (Hotter Remix).” Subverting fans’ expectations of the song, the music video showed the members of BTS displaying their goofy personalities.
Why BTS released ‘Butter (Hotter Remix)’
Big Hit Music shared new teaser photos of the BTS members advertising “Butter (Hotter Remix)” on May 27. In the teaser images, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook posed wearing suits from the original “Butter” music video.
On Weverse, Big Hit Music posted an announcement for ARMY that explained the concept of the new remix, writing:

The BTS members act carefree in the ‘Butter (Hotter Remix)’ music video
“Butter (Hotter Remix)” dropped on May 28 at midnight EDT and 1 p.m. KST. In addition to sharing a digital single of the remix, BTS also released a music video.
The original version of “Butter” features relaxed choreography and a seductive dance break. With the new version of “Butter” being called a “Hotter Remix,” one might assume that the remix’s music video would show BTS turning up their sex appeal.
Instead, the “Butter (Hotter Remix)” music video shows the BTS members goofing around and laughing with one another while dressed in dazzling suits.
In the new music video, one BTS member sings a line or a verse of “Butter” to the camera as the six other members are chaotic in the background. They jump over chairs, twirl around, and laugh together. A few times during the video, the members line up together to dance or sing aggressively to the song.
What ARMY thinks of the new remix
After BTS released “Butter (Hotter Remix),” fans discussed the remix and the music video on social media. The reaction to the remix’s music video is overwhelmingly positive, as ARMY cannot get enough of chaotic BTS.

Another Reddit user wrote, “The MV itself was such chaotic fun! I feel like I have to watch this a dozen more time to catch everything happening!”
“This video is pure chaos and I love it. I’m not even all the way through because I keep repeating to see what’s going on in the background,” wrote a fan on Reddit.
