BTS Is Back and Breaking A You Tube Record
This past Wednesday Mateo and I had an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the new song by BTS. The record label was really hyping it because it's the first song recorded by the group in English. I will be 100 with you, at first listen it was hard for me to understand the lyrics but I thought that even though the lyrics were not clear to me the song was really good. It was fun, upbeat and very catchy. I thought to myself, this is gonna be a big song, but honestly had no idea it was gonna be this big. According to CNET, BTS fans broke You Tube records within minutes:
BTS has cracked YouTube's record for the highest number of viewers for a video's premiere. The K-Pop group's first English song Dynamite garnered 3 million live viewers, twice the audience count of the second-highest premiere ever, according to Variety Friday.
Dynamite is also on track to break the record of most views in the first 24 hours of a music video debut on YouTube -- as of publication, the video was sitting at 69.5 million views, just 15 hours after premiering. The current record holder is K-Pop group Blackpink with How You Like That.
