Following the massive success of BTS‘s first English track “Dynamite” last year—earning a GRAMMY nomination—the group has come back with yet another English bop in the form of the newly released “Butter”.
Although it would seem nearly impossible to top “Dynamite”, NME shared why “Butter” was sure to do just as well—if not better.
With “Butter”, NME’s Rhian Daly noted that BTS “take a more lowkey—but just as effective—path to pop gold” with “a clean and crisp piece of dance-pop that’s undeniably cool.” The layers of the track aren’t the only thing making it a force to be reckoned with.
They highlighted the feel-good lyrics that are needed now more than ever, calling them “a potent shot of confidence that makes you feel ready to take on the world—and have a great time doing so.”
Even though the first day of summer is a month away, NME gave the track a solid five stars and concluded, “It’s still too early in the year to call a definitive Song Of The Summer, but BTS have already set the bar incredibly high.”
Since fortuneteller Suga recently shared his prediction for “Butter”, it looks like it’s already starting to come true.
