    BTS Just Opened Up About Their Single "Butter," And I'm Not Doing Well

    "The intro is awesome. Jungkook is awesome."

    On May 21, BTS destroyed streaming records and charts with the release of their single "Butter," and it's honestly the only thing we've listened to for the past two weeks. It was — and still is! — the moment.

    Since then, BTS have also dropped the cutesy "Hotter" and "Cooler" remixes of the song, as well as a meal partnership with McDonald's that was trending all over Twitter.

    In a new interview with Facebook App, BTS opened up about creating "Butter" and what the song means to them.
