BTS is back with their new single Dynamite and ARMY‘s around the world are rejoicing. For the first time ever we’re seeing the bangtan boys singing a song entirely in English. The peppy disco song has the intention of bringing joy to people during these trying times and bring joy it did.
The song is almost like an ‘ode to the old times’ with references from the iconic king of pop Michael Jackson, American diners, Disco sets and a fantastic old school wardrobe.
Breaking records across platforms and reaching new milestones is not something new to BTS and BTS Army, but today we want to highlight the achievements of Desimys (Desi + Armys) specifically. Within 5 hours of the song’s release, the jubilant track has trended in states like Odisha, West Bengal, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Nagaland, Jammu, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Jharkhand and even the National capital Delhi.
It also reached no.1 on Itunes India, with the instrumental version being number 2 and evergreen record-breaker spring day at no.3 within 2 hours of its release and has since become the first song in Itunes history to reach #1 in 102 countries within a mere 12 hours. Recently the bands Japanese single your eyes tell from their album Map of the soul: Journey which is also the OST to a movie of the same name reached this milestone and set the record for fastest #1s for a song by an Asian act.
This happy track is expected to break many records as fans continue to stream and grow in numbers since the release of the song. During the press conference this morning the band mentioned that this song is meant to be exciting fun and cheerful in these unpredictable times. We hope that it is doing exactly that and can’t wait to see what BTS has in store for us in their upcoming album.
Update: The song has reached no.1 on Spotify India and India is the country with the second highest youtube streams since the release of the song.
