BTS aka Bangtan Boys dropped their newest song Butter today and the BTS Army has been in a frenzy ever since. After Dynamite, Butter is BTS’ second full-length English song by the boys. Dynamite was one of the K-pop groups’ most loved songs and it currently has 1 Billion views on Youtube. But, Butter seems to have broken multiple records as the new BTS song has garnered 10 million views on YouTube in mere 13 minutes, making it the biggest music video premiere on the platform. Not just that, the boys managed to make Butter the fastest music video in YouTube history to hit 50Million views. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook will be performing Butter for the first time at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards on May 23. Meanwhile, it is already known that the band will also make an appearance on the much-talked-about Friends: The Reunion episodes which premieres on May 27, 2021.
It is no secret that the leader of BTS RM has a special connection with Friends so it will be full circle for him. RM has always spoken about how he loves Friends and he has learned English majorly from the show. So when the news of BTS being part of Friends: The Reunion got out, fans were excited to know what will be their part. Responding to the global media on Friday morning (IST) RM said, “Actually we would spoil it, I think the broadcasting company won’t like it! But we have shot for it and we are not sure how we will actually be on the show. I think you’ll will have to wait to find out for yourself. Sorry but we can’t give away more.”

Earlier, Friends: The Reunion director Ben Winston clarified about the band’s appearance on the show, “I want to manage your expectations on this — it’s a really short moment from BTS. They are great of course, but they are one of the interviews, talking briefly about why they like Friends.”
Meanwhile, in an earlier interview with Elle, RM was asked to replace the cast of Friends with the BTS members, RM’s reply was hilarious and yet quite apt, he picked Monica for himself, Jungkook for Joey, Jin for Ross and V for Pheobe. But the rapper couldn’t pick a Rachel out of the boys, he said, “Chandler! I’ve always admired his sense of humor. But I can’t choose a bandmate like him.” Talking about Friends, the cast entails, Matthew Perry (Chandler), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey) and David Schwimmer (Ross). The Friends: The Reunion episodes have a line-up of celebs that include, Kit Harington, Lady Gaga, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Cara Delevingne, Cindy Crawford, James Corden, Elliott Gould, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, James Michael Tyler, Reese Witherspoon, Malala Yousafzai, Thomas Lennon and Christina Pickles.
