Music Monday|BTS —DYNAMITE

HENLO, BAYOG FAM! On my last post (not including the ones I had scheduled before hand), I said that I was going to go on a bit of a [hiatus]. That was about two-ish weeks ago? I’m back…sort of. It’ll be like a semi-hiatus? I realized that I had misread the deadline for the audition. I have a whole month still. So I can still post~ It’s just that I won’t be posting as regularly since I still need time to work on my practicing and recording stuff for my audition~ I know in my previous post, I said I had a plan on how I was going to do posts. Yeah…I might not be able to follow that during this semi-hiatus. However, I definitely plan on following that plan after I’m done with the audition. I just need time to make backlogs and whatnot. So for the time being, I’ll just post when I can. If possible, I’ll try to post once a week for the time being. Except for this week. I lucked out and managed to schedule a couple for y’all.

Anyway, it’s Monday! So I have a Music Monday post for y’all~ Y’all know BTS/방탄소년단. Y’all know I’m BTS ARMY. Loha is ARMY too. He graduated from baby ARMY status…I’m so proud~ (* ̄▽ ̄)b Anyways, y’all know I’m BTS trash. Like, certified. I got several BTS merch, I bought the concert tix, I have the BTS ARMY bomb light stick, the BTS Samsung phone, and I literally hold official BTS ARMY membership. It really was the case of “I didn’t really choose the BTS ARMY life, but the BTS ARMY life chose me.” I’ve brought up BTS [before] in several posts.

Y’all know BTS. Y’all don’t really need another reintroduction. You’re free to check out the [Music Monday: BTS – Lights] post if you still want to brush up on some background info. Anyways, today’s Music Monday post is on their brand, spankin’ new single “Dynamite”. It just dropped on August 21, 2020. So hell yeah, I had to do a Music Monday post for it.

Artist: 방탄소년단/BTS
EP: DYNAMITE
Year: 2020
Genre: K-Pop, Pop, Disco-Pop
Language: English

“Dynamite” is BTS’ first official full English song release. We’ve had V (Taehyung) release [Winter Bear] and [Sweet Night] in English before. However, this is our first English song with BTS as a whole group. We know BTS has been exploding in popularity as they truly cemented K-Pop into Western mainstream media. They had previously been asked if they would ever release songs in English. At the time they had answered that they didn’t really have any plans to. However, 2020 brought the whole COVID-19 pandemic. It put a damper on alot of things. From people getting ill, even dying, losing jobs, and having events get cancelled. This included BTS’ Persona Tour. This bummed out BTS ARMY, including myself, who bought tix and were excited to see our boys perform. It also bummed out the BTS members who worked hard to prepare for the tour. They felt sorry towards ARMY too, and we felt sorry towards them.

The BTS members felt like everything was just so sad and disappointing. They struggled mentally and emotionally, and they knew others did too. They said, “…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.” So they decided they wanted to do something to lift up people’s spirits. Thus, they made “Dynamite”. They wanted it to be a bright and happy song that could energize everyone during these sad and grey times. They took on the challenge of having the lyrics be in English, so it could reach everyone worldwide.

DYNAMITE

B-Side MV

The track itself is an upbeat disco-pop track that has a retro vibe to it. The visuals in the MV also has a retro theme as well. They basically pay homage to retro fashion, music, and well known boybands of the past. We have very 70’s kind of outfits, as well as 90’s boyband type of fashion. As a 90’s baby, I loved it. It was really nostalgic. There’s alot of references to these things from the 60’s to the present. The choreo is also super fun too. It pays homage to some well known disco moves as well as the famous moves from Michael Jackson.

Shining through the city with a little funk and soul~ So I’ma light it up like DYNAMITE~🧨

Much like the bright vibe of the track, the visuals in the outfits and the video are just as colorful and bright too! Overall, the song and the video are all about fun. I think it did an awesome job of portraying that. Also, side note… the MV broke a huge YouTube record. It’s currently the video with the most views within 24 hours. It amassed over a 98.3 MILLION views within 24 hours of it’s premiere. It broke the previous record of 86.3 million views that was held by Blackpink’s “How You Like That.

DAMMIT, MIN YOONGI!!!

BTS’ songs can be very deep and philosophical. It’s one of the reasons why I love their music. I love how relatable it is. I love trying to interpret their lyrics. However, “Dynamite’ is just honestly about fun. So it’s nice that it’s just something to enjoy and energize you.

[Intro: Jungkook]
‘Cause I, I, I’m in the stars tonight
So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight

[Verse 1: Jungkook]
Shoes on, get up in the morn’
Cup of milk, let’s rock and roll
King Kong, kick the drum
Rolling on like a Rolling Stone
Sing song when I’m walking home
Jump up to the top, LeBron
Ding-dong, call me on my phone
Ice tea and a game of ping pong

[Verse 2: RM, j-hope]
This is getting heavy
Can you hear the bass boom? I’m ready
Life is sweet as honey
Yeah, this beat cha-ching like money
Disco overload, I’m into that, I’m good to go
I’m diamond, you know I glow up
Hey, so let’s go

[Chorus: Jungkook, Jimin]
‘Cause I, I, I’m in the stars tonight
So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight (Hey)
Shining through the city with a little funk and soul
So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah

[Verse 3: V, RM]
Bring a friend, join the crowd, whoever wanna come along
Word up, talk the talk, just move like we off the wall
Day or night, the sky’s alight, so we dance to the break of dawn
Ladies and gentlemen, I got the medicine so you should keep ya eyes on the ball, huh

[Verse 4: Suga, Jimin, RM]
This is getting heavy, can you hear the bass boom? I’m ready (Woo-hoo)
Life is sweet as honey, yeah, this beat cha-ching like money
Disco overload, I’m into that, I’m good to go
I’m diamond and you know I glow up
Let’s go

[Chorus: Jungkook, V]
‘Cause I, I, I’m in the stars tonight
So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight (Hey)
Shining through the city with a little funk and soul
So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah

[Post-Chorus]
Dynnnnnanana, life is dynamite
Dynnnnnanana, life is dynamite
Shining through the city with a little funk and soul
So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah

[Bridge]
Dynnnnnanana, ayy
Dynnnnnanana, ayy
Dynnnnnanana, ayy
Light it up like dynamite
Dynnnnnanana, ayy
Dynnnnnanana, ayy
Dynnnnnanana, ayy
Light it up like dynamite

[Chorus]
‘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
(This is ah) 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 (Light it up like dynamite)

[Post-Chorus]
Dynnnnnanana, life is dynamite (Life is dynamite)
Dynnnnnanana, life is dynamite
Shining through the city with a little funk and soul
So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah

Columbia Records, whom BTS is signed under for their US activities, released an official lip sync video with the lyrics.
The boys also released a “Sing ‘Dynamite’ with me” vid.

Minty is DED nowz.

Also, speaking of visuals…can we talk about how good everyone looks??? I say that Tae (Taehyung/V) and [Joon] (Namjoon/RM) are my biases. However, there’s no such thing as a bias…cuz they all be bias wreckers. Yoongi (Suga…aka Agust D) was like my [main bias wrecker]. However, Hobi (Hoseok/J-Hope) really be bias wrecking too. All the members looked great for “Dynamite”. Seriously. I was havin’ a hella bias wrecker dilemma each time I watched the video. However, I thought Tae and Hobi were especially killing it.

Bts Dynamite GIF - BtsDynamite GIFs
Look at Tae Tae!!!

Tae wasn’t named Best Face In The World for 2 consecutive years for nothing. He’s the 4D sweetheart and is like a little puppy. But his charisma when he’s in work mode is like crazy duality man. He’s got good looks, charm, and charisma. Super proud of him. I don’t even like the color green, but Tae looks great in that outfit.

HOBIIIIIIIIII~~~

HOBI. UGH. He’s such a talented and passionate dancer. I hella respect him for that. He’s a big ball of sunshine. He’s all smiles and full of jokes. He’s another member with hella duality. Like that switch when he performs is just like WOAH. He hella owned this “Dynamite” era though. Dude looked freakin’ amazing.

Sir. Please. We all feel attacked.

But seriously, everyone lost their shit when his teaser photo dropped lol. Like he be gettin’ the locals when just the teaser pics dropped lol.

HOBIIIIIII!!!

Also, TWO remixes! We have an EDM remix as well as an acoustic remix. They JUST dropped!

REMIXES

This is the EDM Remix. I know @loheezy was looking forward to this one~ It’s very energetic in it’s own way. It’s a different vibe from the original, but alot of fun energy and bass still. It kind of reminds me of like EDM from when I was in college back in 2010-2015 lol

This is the Acoustic Remix. Out of the two remixes I liked this one best. The EDM one is good, but this one is just more of my kind of style~ It’s kind of chill, but still fun and energetic~

EDIT: Y’all. “Dynamite” was a big success and received alot of love. So Big Hit and BTS decided to be generous and dropped two more remixes. So now we also have a Tropical Remix and a Poolside Remix.

EDIT: Big Hit and BTS keep dropping more remixes LMAO. This is to celebrate being #1 on Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks. The previous remixes were the DayTime Version of Dynamite. These new remixes are part of the NightTime Version of Dynamite. It includes: Slow Jam Remix, Midnight Remix, Retro Remix, and Bedroom Remix.

EDIT: Oh, look. They gave us ANOTHER remix. This the ’70s Remix y’all.

SOCIAL DISTANCE. PLEASE.

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…please, please, please, pleaaaase always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! I’m serious. Please take COVID-19 seriously. It truly is a matter of life and death. It’s something that needs to be taken seriously. It’s not just about the death of if you or someone you know gets it, but it also heavily affects those left behind. There are also aftereffects for those who are able to get through COVID-19. Be responsible. Be safe. Take care y’all. Have a wonderful day.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

This is a difficult, but necessary matter to address. I’m not good at putting things into words, so I apologize. We all know the matter regarding the unjust murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many others. The current Black Lives Matter protests are being covered globally. I’ve even seen it being covered daily by the Thai news. Racism is a very real thing. Being Asian, I’ve personally encountered bullshit racism on a daily basis. So I can relate and understand the struggles. However, I’m also aware of how much more difficult and blatant it is for black POC. AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation. Make sure to have those conversations. Aside from donating, I had several conversations with my family. I explained things to my parents, especially since some news stories were being reported inaccurately. I was afraid it’d be a bit difficult. However, as fellow BIPOC and human beings, it was a necessary conversation. My parents and grandma understand, and now stand on the same page regarding BLM as well. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
