  • K-Pop band BTS has taken the top spot for the music video with the biggest 24-hour debut for their track, Dynamite.
  • The song garnered 101.1 million views in the first day of it's release.
  • Fellow K-Pop group Blackpink held the title before this.

BTS has reclaimed the YouTube record for the "all-time top 24-hour music debut".

The group achieved the feat after dropping their new track, Dynamite, on Friday along with a colourful video. 

Forbes reported that the video had "at least 3 million concurrent views, according to YouTube's live counter," when it premiered.

That number continued to grow, and according to YouTube's records page, Dynamite raked in an impressive 101.1 million views in the first 24 hours.

BTS previously held this record for their song Boy With Luv before fellow K-Pop group Blackpink claimed it from them in June with their track How You Like That.

K-Pop groups continue to dominate this category on the YouTube records page, holding seven of the 10 spots for highest-debuting videos.
