Hollywood Stars Perform BTS’s “Dynamite” | W Magazine
In 2020, the superstar K-pop band BTS broke seven Guinness World Records with their song “Dynamite”: it became the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours, got 7,778,950 streams within a day (and subsequently nabbed the title for the biggest Spotify release of 2020), and spent the most weeks at no. 1 for Billboard’s Social 50 chart. W was inspired by the influence BTS and its fandom, also known as the Army, made, not only in the music realm, but for culture at large. We chose “Dynamite”, their song, for our annual round Lyrical Improv. You can watch Jacob Elordi and George Clooney, Jared Leto, Andra day, Jared Leto and other 2021 Best Performers stars perform the chart-busting song here.
