BTS Break YouTube Record With New All-English Song 'Dynamite'

BTS Break YouTube Record With New All-English Song 'Dynamite'

"Dynamite", the group's first music exclusively in English, hit the No. 1 trending spot on YouTube globally inside 12 hours of its debut.

If you're itching for more, the group will be performing "Dynamite" live at MTV's 2020 Video Music Awards, on August 31, Australian time. The upbeat, dance-y music video was sure to get some significant response, but this is huge!

All eyes were on the 24-hour count to see just how many views Dynamite MV would end up within a day.

According to Astro Awani, their previous music video, ON, also held the record of gaining the quickest views of 10 million in an hour. The video also notched a record for most-viewed YouTube Premiere with more than 3 million live concurrent viewers (with official numbers yet to be released by YouTube). That left it simply shy of hitting 100 million views, a objective many amongst BTS's terribly passionate fanbase (aka BTS Military) had been hoping the video would obtain.

The number of viewers is only increasing. Moreover, Dynamite reached an impressive 104 #1's on iTunes Top Songs Chart.

Several K-pop stars work with American producers and songwriters, but "Dynamite" marks the first single sung completely in English from BTS.

It is important to note here that this is not the first time that BTS has broken records in the music business.

BTS Army has done it: The K-pop idols' new video for "Dynamite" has set a new YouTube record for views in the first 24 hours of release. Again, in April 2019, "Boy With Luv" received about 74.6 million views in the initial one-day period. The lyrics are fully in English, making this their first English song.
