BTS just celebrated the 1st anniversary of Dynamite’s debut and let’s take a look at the most outstanding achievements of this song.
1 year ago on August 21, 2020, BTS officially released the single ‘Dynamite’ (DayTime Version) including the title track ‘Dynamite‘ and its 5 versions (instrumental, acoustic remix, EDM remix, tropical remix, and poolside remix).
