Should BTS release a song in English

BTS release second song in English: "Butter"

The Korean boy band BTS has released their second song so far in English: The song, which the band has already teased with an excerpt, is titled "Butter" and is released today with an accompanying music video. Check out the video for "Butter" at the top of our site.

"Butter" is the second single that BTS have released in English. Last year the band became the first Korean band to land a song at number 1 on the Billboard charts with the song “Dynamite”. “Dynamite” was nominated for a prize in the “Best Pop Duo / Group Performance” category at this year's Grammys, and the Bangtan Boys also won four prizes at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Successes that the seven guys from BTS can certainly repeat with their new song. Just three hours after its release, the song has over 30 million views on YouTube.

Last February, the band released their seventh studio album to date, "Map of the Soul: 7". The successor "BE" was released in November. It is still unclear whether the boy band will be able to keep up the pace and soon release an album that combines their first two English-language singles "Dynamite" and "Butter". The success suggests the possibility of such an album, however.
