BTS’ new song ‘Dynamite’ is smashing YouTube records — here’s why

With the way that BTS is blowing up, the K-popsters are more than living up to the title of their new single “Dynamite.”

Indeed, the boy band is already crushing records with the “Dynamite” video, which premiered along with the song on Friday.

It racked up the highest numbers ever for a YouTube video premiere, with 3 million concurrent viewers for the midnight debut, and it’s also on track to become the most-viewed video in its first 24 hours in YouTube history, with over 53 million views and counting.

The video is a candy-coated romp full of slick, synchronized dancing and heartthrob posing. But it’s the song that’s making this a major moment for BTS.

Not only is “Dynamite” an irresistible disco bop, but it’s the first song by BTS that is completely in English, which may be one of the reasons why the single is such an instant sensation.

BTS is gearing up to make more big moves in the US with the group’s VMA debut performance at the 2020 award show on Aug. 30, where it will perform “Dynamite” from South Korea.

And the boys are up for three VMAs — best pop, best K-pop and best choreography — for their “On” video. So no doubt BTS will be giving fans plenty more reason to squeal.
