BTS’ latest single ‘Butter’ shook the world by breaking multiple records as soon as it hit the music market. The addictive and groovy beats of buttery goodness melted all ARMYs’ hearts and souls. As RM sings in the song “Got ARMY right behind us when we say so”, ARMYs all around the globe answered the call by helping BTS break records. On the 1st day itself, Butter broke many records like the biggest YouTube premiere record and the fastest MV to reach 100 million views. It also won certified ‘PAK’ or ‘Perfect All-Kill’ on iCHARTs by charting at #1 on Melon, Genie, FLO, VIBE, and Bugs charts.
As always, ARMYs in each country wanted to shower their love on BTS and attract their attention. This time around, however, Indian ARMYS took the lead as they showed off their determination and sincere dedication by gaining the position for the highest streaming country on various platforms like YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, etc. since the day of release. They also still continue on with this mission, hoping to help BTS break even more records and recreate history.
On the day of the release, Indian ARMYs started streaming the song and rapidly came into the top 10 streaming countries. They kept up their morale with the mission to support BTS in their hearts and soon saw India surpassing other countries and capturing 1st place!
India solely contributed over 12.6 M views on YouTube while giving 1.1M streams on Spotify (at the time of writing). It also became one of the celebrated countries that charted at #1 on iTunes. Indian ARMYs’ hard work hence seems to have paid off; even more so, now that BTS have left them an encouraging message in a recent interview with PTI.

Conveying their appreciation in such a beautiful display of love, Indian ARMYs astound us by showing their growing power and proving that they in turn have got BTS’ backs no matter what!
