What BTS revealed about ‘Dynamite’
BTS first announced they would release a single during an audio VLIVE broadcast on July 27.
“We have prepared a new single for ARMY, set for August 21. We are preparing an album for the second half of this year, but decided to first release a single because we wanted to reach our fans as soon as possible. Due to COVID-19, people around the world have been going through tough times and we wanted to share some positive energy with our fans,” the band members said.
The group did not reveal the song title during the VLIVE, but they did tell fans the song will be upbeat with English lyrics.
“The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like ‘MIC Drop’ and ‘Waste It On Me,'” they said. “We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh.”
