August 21st BTS hosted a press conference for their new English language single “Dynamite”!
During the press conference, RM announced: “Originally there were no plans to release ‘Dynamite’. Since the beginning of this year we have been working continuously on an album that will be released in the second half of the year, but in the process of preparation we came across ‘Dynamite’. “RM stated that“ Dynamite ”is an exciting and light-hearted song that they have always wanted to try. He added: “While we were producing songs, we had the thought that it would be nice to energize the fans soon and we decided to shockingly release the ‘Dynamite’ as a single before our new album in the second half of the year. ”
Commenting on the reason for using English lyrics, V said: “While we were recording the guide for the song, the English lyrics clung to the melody better and gave a different mood than in the past. Taking into account the song and the melody, everyone agreed that it is better to sing in English. “
BTS also stressed that they wanted to release “Dynamite” to help people around the world during this difficult time due to COVID-19. J-Hope stated, “It’s a calming song that listeners are comfortable with. All the members had the same thought. Instead of revealing the song through the new album, we released it as a single because we had it right now everyone wanted to enjoy. “
V added, “As a situation developed that no one could predict, many of the things we planned were also canceled. So of course we started to think deeper about music. The thought that we wanted to comfort and touch many people with our songs and performances grew stronger. “
The group also briefly discussed their upcoming album. V announced that all members were actively involved in the entire album production and stated that the colors of BTS would be even more pronounced in the new album. Jimin revealed, “I have to be the project manager (PM) for the album. V is responsible for the visual aspects. In previous albums, members have already participated in the planning phase, but this is our first time that we decide what we are responsible for. In all honesty, I’m not sure I did a good job. I worked with anticipation of the project manager job and the members are getting good results. Please look forward to it. “
RM began the press conference by referring to “Dynamite” as a “recharge project” by BTS and compared the song to a ray of light that will break through these difficult circumstances. Suga commented: “We always watch the chart rankings with nervousness and excitement. While it would be an honor to get good results, we always try our best to give back to the love and interest that fans have in us rather than having a specific goal in mind. “He added:” We want to give everyone strength in these difficult times. We hope that many people will hear the song and feel comforted. I hope this becomes a meaningful song that gives strength to both us and the fans. “
