BTS Dynamite Smashes BLACKPINK's YouTube Record; Crosses 44 Mln Views
Aug 23 2020
"Explosive" allegedly broke the record for the most simultaneous watchers on a music video debut, prevailing over individual Korean pop gathering Blackpink, who had 1.65 million watchers on their tune debut "How You Like That" in June.
The upbeat, dance-y and vivid "Dynamite" music video was launched on YouTube Friday, Aug. 21, at 12 a.m. ET/1 p.m. KST. That left it simply shy of hitting 100 million views, a objective many amongst BTS's terribly passionate fanbase (aka BTS Military) had been hoping the video would obtain.
BTS is as expected a major trending topic thanks to their recently released single Dynamite.
What's more, BTS - with its extraordinarily passionate fanbase (aka BTS Army) - still has almost three and a half hours left to pad its lead with "Dynamite", and may even crest the 100-million views mark.
The highly anticipated song, Dynamite by BTS, has finally premiered on YouTube and let's just say it had an eruptive start.
BTS Military has executed it: Ok-pop idols BTS's new video for "Dynamite" set a brand new YouTube report for views in the primary 24 hours of launch. The peppy number will make you all groove in some disco moves.
Another record that the song achieved was that it had had more than 3 million live concurrent viewers and crossed 4 million mark right after it premiered. Moreover, Dynamite reached an impressive 104 #1's on iTunes Top Songs Chart.
K-pop band BTS on Thursday (local time) dropped their first-ever completely English single 'Dynamite'.
It is important to note here that this is not the first time that BTS has broken records in the music business.
Today actually sees the group snatching the record back - they previously held it for their song 'Boy With Luv', featuring Halsey, which scored 74.6 million views in a day back in 2019. The lyrics are fully in English, making this their first English song.
