‘Dynamite’ is a cheerful song as they talk about the value of life and it reflects in the lyrics – “‘Cause I, I, I’m in the stars tonight / So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight (Hey) / Shining through the city with a little funk and soul / So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah.”
It’s not even been 24 hours since the release and the serotonin-filled track has already broken multiple records. ‘Dynamite’ has become the fastest song in the iTunes history to reach the No. 1 position in 100 countries in just 8 hours of its release. This makes their group’s fifth song to achieve this milestone after ‘Moon’, ‘Black Swan’, ‘Your Eyes Tell’, and ‘My Time’ – all from their albums ‘Map Of The Souk: 7’ and ”Map Of The Souk: 7′ – The Journey’.
The music video has also obtained a new record on Youtube. Though the platform is yet to confirm, the video had more than 3 million live concurrent viewers and crossed 4 million mark right after it premiered. The music video has surpassed 50 million views on YouTube in just 8 hours & 16 minutes.
‘Dynamite’ B-side music video will release on August 25 at 12 am KST (Aug 24 8:30 IST). Their first performance of the song will be at Video Music Awards 2020.
