When Butter came out, it took the world by storm with its feel-good vibes, smooth vocals, catchy melody, and was elevated even further with its highly-addicting bass arrangements. The track immediately garnered record-breaking 20.9 million unfiltered global streams – the largest single-day streams of any song ever on Spotify. So, what happens when the world’s most popular K-pop group joins forces with rap royalty? Magic Happens. This is the case for the Butter Remix by BTS which now features Megan Thee Stallion.
The Butter Remix Feat. Megan Thee Stallion showcases one of our favorite dance tracks of the year, revamped with a dash of Megan’s swag. Megan’s electric and strong rapping prowess added a new funky, hip hop, flavor, and a fun twist. This collaboration is another expansion to BTS’ range and growth as an artist, and proof of how capable BTS is of evolving as an artist. Honestly, you don’t have to be a fan of both to appreciate it because it’s very enjoyable!
Megan Thee Stallion rose to popularity with her fresh rap freestyles through her 2020 single, Savage (Remix) feat. Beyoncé and her feature on Cardi B’s single, WAP. Both of these songs reached the number 1 spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. In the same year, Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world on their annual list.
This collaboration is even more exciting due to the fact that we get two award-winning artists together in one song. Megan Thee Stallion is also a three-time Grammy award winner while the popular K-Pop group’s accolades continue to build with nine Billboard Music Awards.
Barely 3 days after its release, the song already has a whopping 24 million views on YouTube. The popularity of this remix can only be attributed to the sheer creative talent that both BTS and Megan Thee Stallion possess. We are looking forward to more from both artists and for the bright and unstoppable future that these singers have.
