BTS' premiere of the video for "Butter" has shattered a number of records on YouTube in the first weekend.

The "Butter" video set a new all-time 24-hour record of 108.2 million views breaking the band's own previous record of 101.1 million views for their first English-language hit, "Dynamite."

Apart from holding No. 1 and No. 2 all-time top 24-hour music video debut, the band also beat another one of their records, with the biggest YouTube music video premiere after "Butter" racked up more than 3.9 million peak concurrents. Last August, "Dynamite" set the record with more than three million peak concurrents.

The Bangtan Boys also had a big night at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards, winning all four awards they were up for: top selling song, top duo/group, top song sales and top social artist, Billboard reported. The debut performance of "Butter" for the event was said to be performed remotely from South Korea.

Likewise, BTS announced their two-day "Muster Sowoozoo" Livestream event, on Monday morning, which will celebrate the K-pop superstars' eighth anniversary and ARMY on June 13-14. More information about tickets for the digital party for the seven-man South Korean boy band and their fans will be released soon, according to a statement.
