BTS' "Dynamite" Lyrics Will Have You Bursting With Energy

For most people, Aug. 21 is like any other Friday, but for the BTS ARMY, it's their favorite time of the year: the start of BTS' comeback season. The group just dropped their explosive new song "Dynamite," along with its colorful new music video. The track marks BTS' first English single, so obviously, fans are super curious to learn what it's all about. ARMY will be happy to hear BTS' "Dynamite" lyrics are just as bright and positive as its infectious beat.

Fans are always so pumped whenever BTS drops new music, but this comeback has been more exciting than ever because of its unique schedule. For example, instead of BTS releasing a single with a new album, the group is focusing on "Dynamite" alone and saving their record for a later date. (Fans are convinced it's coming in October.) Additionally, for the first time ever, the group is promoting a lead single with completely English lyrics. Of course, BTS sprinkles English in many of their songs, but having an entire track in the language is a huge change. "When we first listen to the demo, the lyrics and vibes, everything was so perfect," RM said about their surprising decision in an Aug. 19 interview with USA Today.

With RM's description, ARMYs knew "Dynamite" was going to be something special. Now that they've listened to the song, they think it's BTS' best release yet because of its cheerful vibe.

Watch the "Dynamite" music video below.

The song is pretty darn simple, but entirely effective in acchieving its purpose: filling fans with happiness. Because the song is all about finding the joy in life and lighting up your life like dynamite. Its energetic lyrics won't fail to make fans' days that much brighter.
