Have a listen. Does the beat of “Butter” sound familiar?

Fans immediately noticed how similar “Butter” sounds to Queen’s famous song “Another One Bites the Dust.”

BTS previously showed love for Queen during their LOVE YOURSELF concert at Wembley Stadium.

In 1985, Queen performed a six-song set at Wembley for Live Aid, a benefit concert to raise funds for Ethiopia. Queen opened with “Bohemian Rhapsody” and closed with “We Are the Champions.”

The similarities between “Butter” and “Another One Bites the Dust” have sparked comparisons between BTS and Queen, most notably between Jimin and the late Freddie Mercury.

Many fans feel that Freddie Mercury would have been a fan of BTS and enjoyed their music.
