The ARMY’s hearts are probably still melting like butter after BTS’s energetic performance at the 2021 American Music Awards. RM, Jin, Jimin, Suga, Jungkook, V, and J-Hope — clad in butter-yellow suits, of course — pulled out all the stops when they performed their smooth megahit “Butter” on the AMAs stage. Not only did BTS close the AMAs with perfectly choreographed dance moves, but the K-pop band also won big in three categories, including artist of the year.
In May, “Butter” skyrocketed to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 consecutive weeks. Three months later, BTS released their “Butter” remix featuring Megan Thee Stallion. The Grammy-winning rapper was set to take the AMAs stage with BTS for the first time, but on Nov. 20, she was forced to pull out of the show due to an “unexpected personal matter.” “Butter” holds the record for the biggest debut for a remix in Spotify’s history with 6.7 million streams.
