Released on August 21, 2020, when people worldwide were going through tough times because of COVID-19, this explosive disco-pop song finds BTS looking to spread some joy. Shining through the city with a little funk and soul So I'ma light it up like dynamite RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin and Jungkook are looking to set the world alight with their music and positive energy.
J-Hope told USA Today: "We're in this situation that we have, what is it that can lift me up? The conclusion is always going to be music and dance that lifts me up so I've been trying to listen to music, I've been to write music, dance and that's what I've been doing to cope with the situation."
"Dynamite" is BTS' first song as a lead artist released completely in English, following in the footsteps of their 2018 Steve Aoki collaboration, "Waste It On Me." RM told USA Today when they first listened to the demo, its English lyrics and vibe couldn't be bettered, so they thought why not keep it that way. He added that the most difficult part was stepping out of the comfort zone of singing in Korean and getting the English pronunciations right. It was a "fun hard," RM noted.
