The Global K-pop Kings have returned.
A retro-themed music video for BTS’s new digital single, “Dynamite,” premiered today, August 21 at 1PM KST. The upbeat disco-pop anthem is their first-ever full-English song release since their debut. This track is a follow-up from “Map of the Soul: 7,” which includes the album’s lead single “ON,” which was released exactly six months ago.
David Stewart and Jessica Agombar participated in producing “Dynamite.” Stewart and Agombar are both songwriters from hits “What A Man Gotta Do” by the Jonas Brothers and “I Love You’s” by Hailee Steinfeld.
Official merchandise were also released today for Global fans via Weverse Shop. Shirts, bags, and, ball caps were made available for pre-order. And, to add to the 70’s vibe, limited edition cassettes and vinyl records were available but were sold out fast!
RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook earlier stated that this song is a message of hope for ARMYs during this difficult time.
BTS is set to release a music video for “Dynamite B-Side” on August 25 at 12AM KST. The group will also be performing this song at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, live on August 30, where they are nominated for three categories: Best Pop, Best K-Pop, and Best Choreography.
