Information

"Butter" is a digital single released by BTS. It's their second song performed in English, with Dynamite being the first. It was first released as a digital single, with a physical edition released later on June 9th. The physical single was released in two versions, 'Cream' and 'Peaches', with the difference between the two resting on the contents of the package; if bought through their platform weverse, it would come with an additional postcard for each version. The B-side of the physical release, "Permission to Dance", was co-composed by English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

The song was downloaded 27,772 times on its first day of release in Japan. This marks their largest digital sales in a debut day. It also set a new record for the biggest debut on Spotify, with 11.042 million first-day streams.

The first remix of the song, "Butter (Hotter Remix)", was released on May 28th as a second digital single. It was accompanied by a new music video.

The song reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts. It became the song with the largest sales week, surpassing their previous record set with "Dynamite".

On June 4th, another two remixes, Sweeter Remix and Cooler Remix, were released as a celebration for reaching Number 1 on the Billboad Hot 100 charts.

Since June 15th, it was used as theme song for their variety program Run BTS!.
