BTS delivered “Dynamite” on Friday (Aug. 21), and chatted with Apple Music ahead of the single’s release to dish about the sunny new English-language track.
"This is 'Dynamite' — made of positive vibes, energy, hope, love, the purity, everything," RM said in the interview. "Recording this song was really fun, and like Jin said, we’re going through difficult times so we tried to have more fun working on this song. We made this song in hopes of giving energy to the listeners. We’re glad this song turned out great and hope a lot of our fans can listen to it to receive the positive energy we tried to incorporate in the song."
Described by the band as having a "70s-80s vibe," the video for "Dynamite" finds the K-pop idols dancing their way through a donut shop, basketball court, record store and more while dressed in distinctly vintage styles.
