BTS is writing another all-time record.
On August 21, BTS released their new song “Dynamite.” As if to meet the expectations, BTS attempted a new transformation based on the retro concept and drew enthusiastic responses from fans around the world.
Most Views in 24 Hours
The music video for “Dynamite” rewrote YouTube’s history upon its release. According to YouTube, “Dynamite” has surpassed 101.1 million views in just 24 hours since its release, setting a record of “the most views in 24 hours” in music video history. The figure surpasses the 86.3 million views previously held by BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That.“ Also, the music video for ”Dynamite“ was confirmed to be the biggest music video premiere with over 3 million peak concurrents.
First Korean Artist to Top Spotify
BTS has reached the top of the Spotify Chart, the world’s largest music streaming platform. This is the first record for a Korean singer. According to Spotify, BTS topped the chart with “Dynamite,” becoming the first Korean singer to top the Global Top 50. “Dynamite” also garnered 7,778,950 streaming hits and broke the record of the most streaming hits on the first day of release. With such record, BTS broke their own best record held by “Boy With Luv,” ranked third.
Performances at the Four Major Music Awards
BTS is scheduled to perform “Dynamite” for the first time at the “2020 MTV Video Music Awards” on August 31. The performance will be pre-recorded in Korea then broadcast live during the event. Starting with the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, BTS has performed in American Music Awards, Grammy Awards, and MTV Video Music Awards, leaving their marks in four major music awards in the US.
BTS’s next goal is to top the Billboard singles chart, Hot 100. Hot 100 has been considered a chart in which foreign language songs are inevitably at a disadvantage because it ranks the number of radio broadcasts, streaming performance, and album sales. But now that BTS has released an English song, attention is focusing on what result the group will receive on Hot 100 chart.
