BTS dropped another teaser for its upcoming single, “Dynamite,” and fans went wild on social media.

Fans got another glimpse of what to expect from BTS’ “Dynamite,” which is set to be released on Friday. The new video teaser provides a sneak peek look at the group's performance and the retro concept of the “Dynamite” music video.

By the end of the “Dynamite” preview, Jimin, Jin, Suga, RM, Jungkook, V and J-Hope danced in front of a building with a huge “Disco” sign emblazoned on it, giving a clear hint of the genre of BTS' next offering.

“THIS LOOKS AND SOUNDS SO GOOD IM GONNA CRIE,” one fan commented on the “Dynamite” teaser video.

Another BTS fan expressed her excitement over the upcoming release of the single, saying, “Please please the audience needs the full version i don't wanna wait.”

Some are convinced that BTS’ “Dynamite” will no doubt achieve more milestones for the world-famous boy band this year.


Fans also noted how BTS seemed to pay homage to the king of pop, Michael Jackson, in their dance performance. In fact, the nephew of the late iconic singer noticed the resemblance and took to Twitter to express his gratitude to the K-pop group.

“Thank you @BTS_twt And thank you BTS fans for your continued support over the years,” Taj Jackson said, adding, “I have a couple of friends who got to know the BTS guys, and I have heard nothing but incredible things about them, their hard work ethic and being so nice.”

As of writing, the “Dynamite” teaser has already garnered over 3.4 million likes and 25 million views in less than 24 hours since it was uploaded on YouTube. This feat is largely thanks to the efforts of Army, the fandom of BTS, which had been taking to social media to encourage fellow fans to continuously and repeatedly stream the clip.

“Show our power by doing mass streaming started at 4PM PHT for the official teaser of Dynamite,” one fan tweeted.

“While streaming the teaser, watch videos in between! Put Chicken Noodle Soup on your playlist for us to achieve our 200M views goal on its first anniversary!” another user said.

BTS first mentioned the release of a new single back in July.

“We are preparing an album for the second half of this year, but decided to first release a single because we wanted to reach our fans as soon as possible,” the group revealed on the Korean broadcasting app V Live. “Due to COVID-19, people around the world have been going through tough times and we wanted to share some positive energy with our fans."

BTS added, “The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like 'MIC Drop' and 'Waste It on Me.' We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh.”
