BTS “Dynamite” Breaks “Gangnam Style” Record on U.S. Billboard

BTS’s new English single “Dynamite” has broken several records in the United States, including a record previously held by Psy with his 2012 single “Gangnam Style.”

Released in August 2020 to worldwide success, the music video to “Dynamite” has set several Guinness World Records. It is the first YouTube video to receive over 3 million concurrent viewers, surpassing a record previously set by BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That.” It is also the fastest YouTube video to reach over 10 million views, after only 20 minutes. “Dynamite” is the fastest YouTube video to surpass 200 million views, after four days and 12 hours.

After winning four awards at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), which where held on August 30, “Dynamite” broke another charting record, de-crowning Psy’s viral hit “Gangnam Style” on the Billboard Hot 100. “Dynamite” debuted at number one, making BTS the first Korean artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 in the chart’s six-decade history. “Gangnam Style” had debuted at number two back in 2012.

BTS had expressed that their goal is to top the Billboard Hot 100. The seven boys have now achieved that milestone after only seven years of debut. Their fanbase—known as ARMY—are happily celebrating their achievements.

South Korea’s president, Moon Jae In, is overjoyed with BTS’s success overseas. He called the septet “incredible” and credited them for pushing Korean pop music to the world, calling them the leaders of modern Korean culture.

        @m0m0 yup, spot on right there. It went viral fast on YouTube because it’s BTS, with its huge fan base, all the youtubers do a reaction to their video to catch more traffic into their channels. Overall, the song is meh, but then I’ve never like any of the BTS songs, it didn’t sound catchy to me ‘\o/‘

          They have some nice songs but I like their older music more. Many rely on their huge fan base and popularity not just them. They are talented but are not the most talented. However, many are lucky, popular, got good timing, etc… so it is not just talent that takes you far.

        They have a huge fan base with crazy fans who would do anything for them. Even if their songs are not so great, those crazy fans would blindly say they are all great.

      My girls are a diehard fans of BTS. They were so upset at the postponement of the concert in NJ past May. They didn’t refund money. Postpone until further notice. Don’t know when will they have another concert

        didn’t refund??? it’d probably be years before they can another one given the way we are handling it.

          @m0m0 yep, they smart. They “postponed” not “canceled” so that way they don’t have to refund. So now just keep waiting until their next concert

        I doubt they want to refund. Once the money is in their hands they do not want to give it back.

          @hetieshou exactly, I’ll just accept the fact that I’m losing that money. Lucky I didn’t book hotel or else I guess I’ll loose another couple hundred dollars

          I feel bad for you. Maybe you can watch the new concert with that money online if you cannot see it in person. It sucks to lose money especially during such tough times like this. May I ask how much the tickets were?Just curious.
