South-Korean super K-pop band BTS has delivered a heartfelt video speech at Varietyas Hitmakers event, after being awarded record of the year for 'Butter'. While accepting the honour on Saturday, RM reflected on what the success of the hit song means to them, and described what it was like to perform their first shows since 2019 this past week. "We'd like to thank Variety for this amazing honor," RM said, reports variety.com. ""Butter' holds a very special place in our heart. During these uncertain and turbulent times with the pandemic, we took time to look back on our past and present and decided to release 'Butter' in hopes of lifting spirits."

"The song became an anchor for us to enjoy what we can now and keep moving forward. We just finished our first in-person concert we longed for in two years, especially since the pandemic and this feels truly like the beginning of our new chapter." BTS recently took over L.A.'s SoFi Stadium with four sold-out shows, playing to 70,000 fans each night. Varietyas Angelique Jackson described the first night of the concerts as "rife with confetti, smoke, pyrotechnics and -- of course -- the smoothest of dance moves."

Jungkook added: "It means a lot to us that 'Butter' is being recognised as record of the year. We just wanted to share fun, positive energy with many people, and that is what 'Butter' is to BTS." J-Hope then congratulated all the other Hitmakers honourees, saying: "We're sorry we couldn't be there in person. Congrats to all and hope you enjoy this day." (IANS/ MBI)
