Considering that BTS (or technically, their fanbase, aptly called ARMY) recently broke the record for most-viewed YouTube premiere with their “Dynamite” music video, it comes as no surprise that the K-pop sensations smashed another record, counting the most views for a video within 24 hours of its release.
“Dynamite” is BTS’ first all-English single. Its music video was released on YouTube Friday, August 21, and had at least 3 million concurrent viewers when it premiered, reaching 29 million views within 3 hours.
The music video is as feel-good as the cheery, disco-inspired single. It features the band’s 7 members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook dancing playfully against various colorful settings.
Before “Dynamite,” BTS’ fellow K-pop superstars BLACKPINK held the record for most-viewed video in 24 hours – the music video for their comeback single “How You Like That” counted 86.3 million views with in the first day of its release in June. – Rappler.com
