Global superstars BTS made their big comeback on August 21st with the brand new digital single “Dynamite.” The track is the septet’s first English language release and follows their fourth studio album, Map of the Soul: 7 which was released on February 21st this year.
While Map of the Soul: 7 was a darker record which saw BTS open up about their hardships and fears, “Dynamite” seeks to change gears and spread joy. The group discussed the track in a press conference the morning of the release, stating they wanted to provide some happiness in these trying times. Leader RM explained, “The release of ‘Dynamite’ wasn’t planned at all. We were working on our album since the beginning of this year and ‘Dynamite’ was one of the songs we met in that process. It was a light, fun song that didn’t have any seriousness and cheered us up a lot. We wanted to share this energy with our fans as quickly as possible and decided to release it early, something we’ve never done before.”
