In a new performance video, BTS‘s 3J (J-Hope, Jimin, and Jungkook) perform a special choreography for the “Butter” remix featuring Megan Thee Stallion. This short but powerful routine is full of tiny details that deserve a round of applause. Check them out!
1. J-Hope channeling his inner Megan
Although Megan Thee Stallion isn’t performing with BTS in person, she’s with 3J in spirit. The choreography incorporates elements of Megan Thee Stallion’s style, beginning with J-Hope’s intro.
2. V sign
The dance includes a quick series of hand movements that even J-Hope said he found confusing! It starts with this classic V sign.
3. Bangtan Style
When BTS, the Bulletproof Boy Scouts, debuted, they introduced themselves by drawing finger guns and shouting their greeting.
3J goes back to the early days by bringing back this signature gun pose.
After the Bangtan gun, 3J gives a shoutout to Megan Thee Stallion’s hometown of Houston, Texas with the H-Town hand sign.
3J follows up their H-Town hand sign with Megan Thee Stallion’s signature move: sticking out their tongues — with attitude.
Side note: nobody was prepared for this. Nobody.

6. From “smooth like Butter” to “driving us crazy”
“So smooth, like the car I ride.” 3J demonstrates these lyrics by swiping their thumbs across their lips then jumping behind the wheels of imaginary cars. The series of movements in between are so crisp and detailed that you’ll want to watch this part again and again!
7. The power of 3J
It’s been a long time since this dance unit took over the practice rooms, but it was worth the wait! J-Hope, Jimin, and Jungkook all have different dance backgrounds, and when they connect — look out! It’s pure fire.
8. The wave
“They know that I’m the wave, take over every summer.” If you’ve ever been to a concert, you’ve seen “the wave” in action. 3J puts their own unique spin on it here, ending with Jungkook fanning himself. (We’re fanning ourselves too.)
9. “And I be on these girls’ necks like the back of they bobs.”
3J brings classic Megan Thee Stallion swagger to this spitfire lyric, then frames their faces with a finger and thumb “L.” Worldwide Handsome Jin is a big fan of this pose. It roughly translates to, “I’m hot, and I know it.”
10. Hubba Bubba
If you’re a big fan of Hubba Bubbe bubblegum, stock up now. It might sell out soon, thanks to this creative ending pose!
