Have you been singing “Dyn-na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na, na-na-na, life is dynamite” throughout this weekend? The worldwide superstars BTS dropped their first English single ‘DYNAMITE’ on August 21. The cheerful and upbeat track brings back the disco-era as it tries to be a source of upliftment in these trying times. The main motive behind this was to bring happiness in the lives of people and the song is very catchy.
Having broken several records and dropped two remixes, BTS have released the B-side music video for ‘DYNAMITE’ adding more fun to the excitement. We see the members – RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook – showcasing their true selves and that is their chaotic energies blending with their superior talents – slick moves, vibrant personalities and dorkiness.
It has some extended scenes from the official music video and some bloopers that are full of serotonin. The music video is impromptu-scenes filled with dance moves, laughs, Suga scoring a basket like a pro, Michael Jackson moves and the most fun part – the elaborate discotheque sequence where each member showcases their distinct charms. These moves were teased by the members during their ‘Map Of The Soul: 7 – The Journey’ promotions and fans were convinced that it would be included in the music video. It reminds us of the ARMY version of ‘Boy With Luv’ music video.
‘DYNAMITE’ B-Side is euphoric, blissful and more importantly, the septet is seen having fun [without realizing that this EP will end up shattering records after records]. The choreography is easy to learn, the colourful vibes work as a balm, and the energetic vibe truly encapsulates the spirit of BTS. This is what they hope for that their music works as a healing factor to the people around the world.
The song has broken multiple records already including Youtube’s 24-hour viewing record with 101.1 million views. The septet released EDM and acoustic remixes of the song on August 24. The song has gone No. 1 in more than 100 countries. BTS is set to perform the track for the first time at MTV Video Music Awards 2020.
On that note, “Shining through the city with a little funk and soul / So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah.”
