'Dynamite' is the global superstars' first-ever English song and has broken and set numerous records over the past year. The dance anthem served as the group's first-ever Billboard Hot 100 number 1 debut and hit single, and got BTS their first GRAMMY nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
Meanwhile, its official music video broke various records last year as the most-viewed music video on YouTube in 24 hours, the most-viewed music video by a K-pop group in 24 hours, as well the most number of concurrent viewers for a music video premiere. The records have since been overtaken by their own 2021 hit single, 'Butter'.
