“Dynamite gives me a Bruno Mars Uptown Funk type of vibe,” said a Twitter user.
Interestingly the person was not the only one who found the overall vibe of the song, its beats and catchy tune all too familiar.

Sticking to the feel-good theme of the track, fans instead called for a collaboration between the two artists. “After Dynamite can we get a BTS x Bruno Mars collab already,” one asked.
Another said, “If they drop Dynamite featuring Bruno Mars I’m gonna dieeeeeeee.”

The seven-member group is at the forefront of South Korean pop music and has helped win K-pop fans around the world since their 2013 debut.
“Everyone in the world is going through tough times right now,” member Jimin told the news conference aired via YouTube.
“Dynamite is a song that can lift anyone’s spirit. We gained a lot of energy singing and rehearsing it,” he said.
According to reports, the song has already dethroned fellow K-Pop artists Blackpink to record the biggest premiere in YouTube history.
Although official figures are not yet out, it was reported that an estimated 3-4 million users signed in for the big premiere.
BTS broke into the U.S. market in 2017 and were the first Korean group to win a Billboard music award. They performed at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles in January.
