There have been thoughts that BTS sampled the hit track “Another One Bites The Dust” By Queen but the group has denied so themselves.
On May 21, BTS came back with a new all-English song “Butter.” Previously, when the teaser was released, many listeners heard something familiar and some thought that the song might’ve sampled “Another One Bites The Dust” By Queen, this was reinforced by Queen’s official account retweeting the song teaser with the caption,
“Are you ready hey are you ready for this… Another One Bites The Dust x #BTS_Butter”
During their press conference for their recent comeback, the BTS members explained they didn’t sample the song, RM said,
“We heard that Queen retweeted our teaser and it had gone viral. To tell you truthfully, there was no sample or paying homage to Queen.”
Jin added that he’s open for a collaboration with the legendary band whenever and that they should give them a call, “please call us, we’re always ready.”
