WATCH: BTS ‘lights it up like dynamite’ in new all-English song, music video
The long wait is over for all Army fans as the global K-pop superstar BTS has finally released its all-English digital single “Dynamite,” along with its explosive performance in a disco-infused music video.
On Friday, Aug. 21, BTS showcased a vibrant and refreshing vibe in its music video, which also features each of the group’s members grooving in diverse scenes and highlighting his distinct personality in every move, followed by the group’s all-out choreography over a disco-pop beat and polychromatic backdrop.
It premiered on Big Hit Labels’ YouTube channel at exactly 12 p.m. PHT (1 p.m. KST), and as of this writing, it has now garnered over 30.5 million views and 3.6 million in three hours after release. The song is also available now on Korean and international music streaming sites.
Earlier this month, the group teased fans with its upcoming single through individual and group photo releases, and a clip that unleashed a disco nostalgia vibe.
In an online global press conference, the seven BTS members shared that their inspiration in the making of this new song was their desire to spread a message of happiness and confidence to everyone and to “help lift people’s spirits” amid the challenges brought by the coronavirus pandemic. So to give “reassurance and healing” to fans, they dedicate this song to share positive energy and “light it up like dynamite” around the world.
More surprises from BTS are coming this month as the K-pop stars will also be performing live for the first time their new single, “Dynamite,” in this year’s MTV Music Video Awards. /ra
