• BTS was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at Grammys last year
  • 'Butter' broke a new record on YouTube shortly after its release
  • BTS' new track surpassed Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber's record on Spotify

BTS renews its quest to bag its very first Grammy Award after the successful release of its second English-language track, "Butter." The Big Hit Entertainment-formed band was the first South Korean group to ever win a Grammy nomination in 2020.

On Friday, BTS member Suga said at a news conference in Seoul that the group is very eager to earn their first Grammy trophy. "Of course, we would like to win a Grammy. That's still valid and we are aiming to work for it once again with 'Butter,' and hoping for good results," the K-pop idol said.

BTS' "Dynamite" track was nominated for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 63rd Grammy Awards. At the time, the K-pop supergroup was pitted against Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.

BTS celebrated their feat by uploading a clip of V, Jungkook, Jimin and RM jumping up from a sofa as their nomination was announced. Talk show host James Corden quickly congratulated the K-pop supergroup, saying: "I am so happy for you and the whole army!"

"Butter" has already achieved an important milestone shortly after its release. YouTube confirmed that the music video of BTS' latest digital single had secured the highest 24-hour debut in the video-sharing platform's history.

It revealed that the official MV of "Butter" garnered a total of 108.2 million views in its first 24 hours. The number surpassed the previous record of BTS' "Dynamite," which generated 101.1 million views on its first day.

BTS now holds the first and second spots on YouTube's All-Time Top 24 Hour Music Debut list. Blackpink is on the third spot with "How You Like That," which earned 86.3 million views in its first 24 hours last summer.

BTS has also made a new record on Spotify with "Butter." The track notched the biggest song debut on the popular music streaming platform with 11.04 million global streams, surpassing Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran's "I Don't Care" with a 10.97 million first-day stream count.
