BTS’ V thrilled fans anew after he posted a snippet of an unreleased song by the band on his Instagram page.

The 26-year-old “Butter” singer uploaded a 43-second sound clip Tuesday of an unreleased track featuring his melodious voice with piano accompaniment.

BTS fans, collectively known as ARMY, are anticipating the release of his solo mixtape, which they often refer to as “KTH1.” ARMYs rejoiced over the new upload and started a trending topic on Twitter, "his voice", praising the “Dynamite” singer for his musical skills.

“The lyrics, his voice, Kim Taehyung this is so beautiful,” user @vminggukx tweeted.

The tweet included an English lyric of the unreleased romance ballad which said, “I see you smile; I smile too/I see you cry, I cried too/Since you’re not here, lost my only light/I’m all by myself 9 feet under.”

"I am so ready, been ready, staying ready for KTH1 #KimTaehyung whenever he is ready to drop it. HIS VOICE is just heavenly. In the meantime, I’ll be listening to #V_ChristmasTree by #BTSV @BTS_twt which is another heavenly song,” another fan echoed.

Kim Taehyung, also known as V, earlier hinted about an unreleased music on his Instagram page in December 2021. He posted a clip on his Instagram story which showed him driving in Hawaii, singing along to a song unknown to his followers.

The clip included letters which spelled “I love you” with an “ARMY” gif towards the end. Later in the month, V again posted an instrumental audio to his Instagram story. But he quickly deleted it after letting a fan know on the Weverse app that he is indeed working on a new song.

BTS is set to reunite onstage in March for their "Permission To Dance" concert in Seoul following their very successful concerts in the U.S. last year.

Meanwhile, the group’s youngest member, Jungkook recently inspired a food company to change its Twitter handle from “Chipotle” to “Chicotle” following a hilarious video which was recently uploaded to the group’s YouTube page.

BangTanTV on Sunday uploaded a video of Jungkook eating Chipotle for the first time. The video showed the Bangtan Boys having their lunch after filming their crosswalk concert for “The Late Late Show with James Corden” in December 2021.

“What is this, Chicotle?,” Jungkook asked a show’s crew.

The next day, Mexican restaurant chain Chipotle briefly changed its Twitter handle to "Chicotle" and tweeted, "It's chicotle from now on."
