If you need something to brighten your day, the obvious answer would be watching South Korean boyband BTS’ latest music video for the song “Dynamite.” It’s their first song sung entirely in English and the music video is a colorful fun-filled dance explosion.
BTS New Song ‘Dynamite’ Is An Explosion Of Fun
The music video features the boys dancing to some throwback moves like moonwalking and the pelvis thrusts. At one point, they wear disco-inspired outfits along with pastel colors towards the end. It definitely gave off major 90s boyband vibes and was the ultimate blast from the past with a new fresh twist. Of course, the BTS Army is absolutely loving the song, pushing it to close to 58 million views already. This number is sure to only increase from here, with the Army dedicated to getting it to 100 million views within 24 hours of its release.
According to Forbes, “The video premiere attracted at least 3 million concurrent viewers, according to YouTube’s live counter, and a refresh immediately following the premiere showed the view count at just over 4 million.” This “easily gives BTS the biggest YouTube premiere ever, potentially doubling the former record holder.” The group previously spoke about their goal for the song to Variety. “For ‘Dynamite,’ our goal is a little bit different and a little bit special. We built this song to give strength to the people who listen to it. Our goal is to have as many people as possible hear it and get a little bit of reassurance and healing from it.”
They Will Be Performing The Song At The MTV Video Music Awards
BTS made VMA’s history last year for winning the brand new Best K-Pop category for the song “Boy With Love” featuring Halsey. Their performance this year will definitely blow us all away as it will be the first time they perform on the high caliber award show. Along with performing, the group is nominated in three categories this year including Best Choreography, Best Pop and Best K-Pop for their song “ON.” You can watch the VMAs live on the MTV television channel or stream it on MTV.com. The MTV app (available on Google Play, iTunes, Roku, and other platforms) requires you to sign in with your TV provider but is also another effective way to watch.
Earlier this month BTS announced that if theaters are set to open amid the coronavirus pandemic, their film “Break the Silence: The Movie” will play in theaters in more than 70 countries. This is set to start on September 10. More countries, including the United States, will debut the film in theaters starting September 24, according to the site, with some states not opening theaters amid the pandemic. Definitely tune in to watch BTS at the VMA’s because it will be a performance that you won’t want to miss.
