Hands down, BTS!

BTS has unsurprisingly raked in another milestone on the YouTube platform as the music video for their well-loved English single “Dynamite” surpassed 1.2 billion views.

On August 20, 2020, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook gifted fans with their first-ever English digital single “Dynamite.” The track charms with its funky, pop, and retro vibes. Through the song, the septet hopes to spread hope and deliver a positive message to everyone struggling because of the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Third and fastest MV with 1.2 billion views

Following “Boy With Luv” and “DNA”, the “Dynamite” officially became the septet’s third music video to smash 1.2 billion views. Remarkably, it became the fastest Korean group music video to reach the online feat. It took them around 11 months, 16 days, and five hours to achieve the record.

Aside from its continuous dominance on YouTube,  the hit single also brought incredible achievements to BTS. Among the group’s numerous accolades is its historic takeover on Billboard. The song topped Billboard’s Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks and stayed on the chart for 32 weeks.
