By now, BTS have racked up so many records that you’d think there were none left. But you’d be wrong; Guinness World Records announced on Tuesday (March 16) that the K-pop septet officially notched yet another massive achievement thanks to their English-language smash “Dynamite.”
The colorful video for the song is now in the Guinness books for achieving the “most simultaneous viewers for a music video on YouTube Premieres.”
According to the record keepers, “Dynamite” set the mark last year when the clip brought in more than three million viewers at the same time. The Guinness folks also added that, not for nothing, “they may have a nice spread in the upcoming book, so look out for that.”
Speaking of “Dynamite,” BTS crushed it on Sunday night at the 2021 Grammy Awards when the South Korean boy band beamed in from Seoul, South Korea, for a high-energy run through the Billboard Hot 100 topper. And while they couldn’t join the rest of the performers in California, BTS closed out the show with a run through the song on a set that recreated the Los Angeles skyline.
Check out the announcement below.
