K-Pop band BTS dropped their first entirely English single Dynamite yesterday and it is already smashing records! Members Jungkook, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V recently reunited for a press conference. As if the army wasn’t going crazy enough seeing them all together, the septet released Dynamite hours after the conference.
BTS’s Dynamite is a peppy and funky track, just what we need at the moment. And the boys are dazzling in its music video which seems to be inspired by different music eras. We can see the Beatles, Michael Jackson and Backstreets Boys references in the video.
The creative contributors to the song are David Stewart and Jessica Agombar, known for Jonas Brothers‘ What A Man Gotta Do.
Now, if you know, you know that the Bangtan boys are also known for their catchy choreographies and dance moves. And Dynamite totally lives up to our expectations. While Jungkook teased fans saying the steps were “quite easy this time”, we gotta admit, no one can match these boys’ grooviness!
The boy band speaks about Dynamite
At the BTS press conference, RM revealed that the release of Dynamite “wasn’t planned at all.”
“We were working on our album since the beginning of this year and ‘Dynamite’ was one of the songs we met in that process. It was a light, fun song that didn’t have any seriousness and cheered us up a lot. We wanted to share this energy with our fans as quickly as possible and decided to release it early, something we’ve never done before,” he said.
SUGA also emphasized on the song’s message of “there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
“I would say it is dedicated to all the people in the world who feel like they fell down while they were running a marathon.”
Vocalist V added, “The upcoming album will contain a lot of our personal touches, unique charms and characteristics. Our previous albums contained our touch too, but this one especially shows more of that.”
BTS is breaking records with Dynamite
The bright and cheerful music video for Dynamite witnessed the biggest Youtube premiere ever. While the video platform is yet to confirm the exact numbers, the song reportedly saw 3 – 4 million concurrent views.
Dynamite also became the fastest music video to cross 10 million views, doing so in just 21 minutes! Moreover, it smashed records on streaming apps too, becoming the fastest song to reach No. 1 on iTunes.
And this is only the beginning! We’re sure Dynamite will break many more records over the next few hours.
