BTS’ Dynamite smashes YouTube record with 101.1m streams

BTS’ new single Dynamite has officially become the most-viewed music video on YouTube in 24 hours with over 100 million streams. 

The K-pop kings released the aesthetically-pleasing visuals on Friday and, of course, the views soared within hours. 

According to AllKPop, YouTube has now confirmed that Dynamite amassed an eye-watering 101.1 million views in just one day on the platform making the most-viewed clip in 24 hours in their history. 

It means BTS, consisting of RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, V and Jungkook, have beaten previously record-holders BLACKPINK. Dynamite managed to clock up more than 14.8 million views more than BLACKPINK’s How You Like That, which broke the record in June. 

On Friday, it was reported that Dynamite registered more than twice the peak of live-viewers than How You Like It, and as it went live, estimates clocked between three to four million live concurrent viewers. 

The two K-pop groups just can’t stop going tit-for-tat as How You Like That broke the previous record, which was held by BTS, for their On MV which hit 1.54 million concurrents.

Dynamite features name drops for the Rolling Stones and LeBron James and features the boys singing about funk, soul and disco overload. 

The video features the most colourful array of looks we’ve ever seen from BTS in an MV, and, from RM’s blue barnet to the fairy floss coloured-set, we can’t quite decide what is the biggest moment.

Speaking at an online press conference as the music video went live on YouTube, Jimin explained: ‘Everyone in the world is going through tough times right now, nobody expected this, and we ourselves couldn’t do a lot of the things we had planned. We really wanted to be on stage, we wanted to meet out fans. 

‘As artists we felt empty and helpless and we needed a breakthrough to overcome this emptiness, and we came across this opportunity to try something new. Dynamite is a song that can lift anyone’s spirits.’
