Boy band BTS seems to set an unbeatable record by crossing the 100M mark. The K-pop idols' new upbeat disco-pop song clinched the top spot for the highest number of views and most live views in the first 24 hours of its debut. The song debuted on August 21 at 12 am ET or 1 pm KST, and within a little more than 24 hours, it crossed 100M views. Unbelievable, isn't it?

As per a Variety report, by 8.35 pm ET or 9.35 am KST on August 22, the track had already garnered more than 86.4M views on YouTube, snatching the crown from Blackpink for ‘How You Like That’, which raked almost 86.3M views in the first 24 hours. If that wasn't enough, the music video has almost 3M concurrent live viewers, YouTube confirmed on August 21. This is not the first time BTS achieved a rare feat. Back in April 2019, their song 'Boy With Luv' collected 74.6M views within the first 24 hours.


No sooner they crossed 100M views, the BTS Army couldn't stop celebrating the good news. "WE BROKE THE RECORD!!! We finally reached 100M views. GROUP HUG ARMYS, we did an amazing job and I’m sure if BTS see this, they’re very happy for us. Thank you for the nonstop streaming & for the hardwork, sacrifices & efforts. Let’s keep going," one tweet read.


Another said, "This is how ARMYS & BTS united together. We’re the strongest family ever. We have shown our greatest power around the world & now we finally reached the success. We broke the record & they deserve that. Sending my love & hugs ARMYS. Dynamite 100M."


Many fans urged others to promote it on TikTok and stream it on Spotify. "Light it up and keep streaming, we're aiming at 150M views for today, don't forget to promote it on TikTok, make cute videos and other stuff, and please stream on Spotify, it's very important for hot100 charting!!! #Dynamite100M," one tweet read.


Not just YouTube, the Army shared the views on other platforms too. "100M views, #1 on ichart, 104 #1's iTunes, 250k shazams, 13M streams on Spotify ARMY BEST FANDOM. WE REALLY DOING GREAT! I'M SO PROUD OF US. CONGRATULATIONS GUYS," one tweet read.


If you still haven't heard the song, here's how you can stream it on Spotify. Install the app and if you already have it, here's where you can listen to two versions of the song. With a surge of energy, the track has BTS band members — RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook — searching for happiness by trying to spread joy with their addictive moves and charming allure. The chorus by Jungkook goes: "'Cause I, I, I'm in the stars tonight / So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight / Shining through the city with a little funk and soul / So I'ma light it up like dynamite, woah-oh-oh..." The lyrics further read: "King Kong, kick the drum / Rolling on like a Rolling Stone / Sing song when I'm walking home / Jump up to the top, LeBron."

Calling it a "feel-good song," V told the press that the song "felt new and different" from what the group has tried before. "Everyone in the world is going through tough times," Jimin told reporters. "Dynamite is a song that can lift anyone's spirits."
