During a performance in Portsmouth, Virginia on May 4, 2017, Scott hinted at the release of new music in a freestyle. Scott can be heard saying: “Dropping new music in a few days. Bout to go crazy for a few days.” The song was released alongside two other songs from Scott on SoundCloud, including “A Man” and “Green & Purple”, which featured American rapper Playboi Carti.

Critical reception
Lawrence Burney of Vice magazine said: “‘Butterfly Effect’ is textbook slurred Scott number, with backing vocals that sounds eerily similar to Migos’ ‘Slippery.'” Madeline Roth of MTV said the song is “hazy” and “low-key”. Similarly, Tom Breihan of Stereogum said: “‘Butterfly Effect’ is low-key and melodic, with some sharp production from Drake collaborator Murda Beatz.”

Music video
The music video was released on July 13, 2017 via Travis Scott’s VEVO channel. It was directed by BRTHR, who also directed the video to Scott’s “Goosebumps”.
