  • BTS have released the video for their new track, Dynamite.
  • The song could smash Blackpink's record for the biggest YouTube premiere.
  • Filled with colour and some catchy dance moves, the Dynamite video is guaranteed to make you smile.

K-Pop group, BTS, have dropped their new single, Dynamite, along with a colourful video.

After teasing fans with the release of the track, the video officially premiered on YouTube on Friday, garnering over 30 million views in the first few hours. 

According to Forbes, BTS may have smashed the record for the biggest YouTube premiere, although the video streaming platform has not released any data confirming this yet. 

The publication reports that when Dynamite premiered at midnight EST, it had "at least 3 million concurrent viewers, according to YouTube's live counter".

Fellow K-Pop stars Blackpink currently sit at the top of the biggest premiere list. Their song, How You Like That, had over 1.6 million concurrent viewers when it premiered in June.

Should calculations be correct, BTS could once again find themselves at the top of the list.

The colourful Dynamite video is like a summer dance party and is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
