Last week of August had been full of great releases that we had thought that probably nothing would top that but here we are in the near-ending week of the month and the releases just keep getting better and better!

Check out the list below.

 

      1. BTS – ‘Dynamite’

Lighting up your world like a dynamite, the Bangtan Boys are back and cracking!

‘Dynamite’ is BTS’s first all English track and they have definitely opened up this new domain with a bang! Adhering to the retro disco concept, the music video features the “glowed-up” boys in classic 80s outfits vibing to one of the poppiest track ever, that sings of sassy funk and uplifting soul 🙂 

This is exactly the kind of feel good track we all need while living through these tense times of a pandemic-stricken world!

      3. Dreamcatcher – ‘BOCA’

A hybrid of genres that somehow magically manages to sound extremely ear-pleasing!
