BTS did not disappoint! In this crazy, upside-down world, BTS lights up our lives like dynamite.
I have watched this BTS’s “Dynamite” many, many times. All I can say is WOW! I loved the use of the pastel colors which gave the video an almost rainbows-and-unicorns type quality. The visuals were were outstanding as always. Their clever use of location, the record store to the disco, along with the fabulous wardrobe, further emphasized the old school, vintage vibes.
The song itself is, well…amazing. It’s upbeat and light. It oozes happiness. It’s the kind of song you have blasting on the radio while driving on the highway with your windows down with your girlfriends on a hot summer day. It’s the perfect song for this moment, today, right now.
