K-pop band signals their continued domination of the international music charts with their first-ever English language single
Joining the ranks of artists and musicians who've blessed this pandemic period with their creative output, K-pop band and global music phenomenon BTS have just dropped a teaser trailer for their latest single 'Dynamite'.
The seven-member boy band from South Korea, who've smashed records around the world with hits like 'Boy With Luv' and 'MIC Drop', will be releasing 'Dynamite' as their first-ever English language song, which promises to spur on their continued domination of the music industry both at home in Korea and, increasingly, abroad. The full music video for 'Dynamite' will be released on Fri 21 Aug at 5am BST (1pm KST).
Since their debut in 2013, BTS have taken the world by storm, amassing a truly international fanbase (collectively known as ARMY) with their heartfelt lyrics, arresting visuals and choreography, and high-concept storytelling. Following the release of 'Dynamite', the band will be giving their debut performance of the song at the 2020 MTV Music Video Awards ceremony on Mon Aug 31, where they've been nominated in the categories of Best Pop, Best K-Pop, and Best Choreography for their hit single 'ON'. 'Dynamite' will be the first single from their upcoming album, to be released in the latter half of 2020.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic throwing a spanner in BTS' plans for their globetrotting Map of the Soul tour, the band have clearly remained busy under quarantine. Their virtual concert BANG BANG CON shattered audience records around the world, and they are poised to do so again with their upcoming show Map of the Soul ON:E, which will be taking place on Sat 10 and Sun 11 Oct, both online as a virtual gig and offline through a socially-distanced performance.
Their ARMY will also get a taste of what life was like for RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin, and Jungkook as they embarked on their first international stadium tour in their fourth concert film, Break the Silence, which is scheduled to hit cinema screens on Thu 10 Sep.
