BTS have shared a new ‘Holiday Remix’ of their smash hit single “Dynamite” and you can watch its festive video below.
The K-pop stars’ recent single “Dynamite” broke a handful of records upon its release, and is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 2021 Grammys, making the band the first K-pop artists to get a nod at the awards.
The new festive remix and video sees “Dynamite” given a distinctly Christmassy makeover, with the band hosting their own Christmas party.
Reviewing the Grammy-nominated “Dynamite”, which broke the record for most YouTube views in 24 hours upon its release in August, NME wrote: “Life might not be as “sweet as honey” as BTS sing right now but, on this song, they take you to a place where that feeling is viscerally, dazzlingly real. Given everything that’s been thrown at us over the last six months, why would you turn your nose up at that?”
Last week, BTS performed new single ‘Life Goes On’ with a hologram version of member Suga at the MNET Asian Music Awards (MAMA) 2020, where they also took home eight awards. Suga was unable to perform with the band in person as he is currently recovering from surgery on an old shoulder injury. In November, the band’s label Big Hit Entertainment confirmed the rapper would sit out of “most” promotional activities around their new album Be.
BTS landed their fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, when Be bowed at the top of the tally. The K-Pop stars’ new set, which was released via Big Hit Entertainment on November 20, arrived with 242,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending November 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
BTS’ Be is the second chart-topper of 2020 for the pop group, following Map Of The Soul: 7, which debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated March 7. Of Be’s 242,000 units earned to date, album sales comprise 177,000, TEA units comprise 35,000 and SEA units comprise 30,000 (equating to 48.56 million on-demand streams of the album’s songs).
