Performing from the inside of the Seoul record store ‘Vinyl & Plastic,’ BTS were the latest guests for NPR’s Tiny Desk Series.


Their three-track performance included ‘Save ME,’ ‘Spring Day,’ and their number one hit record, ‘Dynamite.’  BTS became the first-ever Korean and international group to debut at No.1 on the Billboard charts, and the music video for ‘Dynamite’ currently holds the record for ‘most views within the first 24 hours’ on YouTube (101.1 million views).  ‘Dynamite’ is the groups first English-language record, and currently has over 380 million views.



Talking with NME, BTS opened up about their forthcoming album, “This upcoming album really reaches new heights in terms of active participation from the members.  We each take our share of responsibility for the team and act with initiative; increasing our responsibility from general participation to taking charge of more significant portions of the creative process allowed us to consider many more aspects of music.”



And this Friday, looks like the boys of BTS are heading to Fortnite.  Epic Games and BTS have teamed up for an exclusive new music video.  According to NME, “The premiere will take place in Fortnite’s Party Royale mode, the game’s no-combat social space where players can get together with friends to catch concerts, watch movies, or just chill. Following the premiere, players can attend the “Dynamite (Tropical Remix)” listening party with karaoke graphics to sing and dance along.”
