BTS (방탄소년단) smashed another record this week when their English-language single “Dynamite” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated 5th September).
In a new interview with the music publication, the seven members of the K-pop group couldn’t contain their excitement as they shared their thoughts on the historic achievement.
Over-filled with excitement, team leader RM remarked, “This is my tombstone! We’ll take it to the grave,” as J-hope excitedly shows off their top Hot 100 spot on his phone. RM then went on, “This was a dream come true more than anything. We’re just like so happy.”
When asked about the process of creating the single. RM shared, “It is basically a dance song, a disco pop song. Throughout the process of making and producing the song, we recorded and danced at the same time. I just couldn’t hold my body.”
The topic then switched to their plans on their upcoming project. According to Jimin, “The next album will contain a lot of songs that will satisfy the varying tastes of our fans. Please look forward to it.”
Additionally, the group was also asked on whether they feel nervous on setting a bigger goal for the next comeback following the impressive achievement with “Dynamite”. Jin humbly responded, “Of course, we are excited. But that’s not necessarily the goal that we set. What’s more important to us is that our fans can listen and enjoy our music. That alone makes us happy enough.”
RM added, “We’re more like down-to-earth people. So, we just like trying to stick our feet on the ground and keep it calm.” The youngest member (maknae) of the group, Jungkook, also shared his reaction upon receiving the great news on his birthday.
“It’s unbelievable. I heard about it and had amazing support from fans on that day. The members and I celebrated the news with a glass of champagne; having a blast,” the 23-year-old told the MC, to which he revealed that V, Jin and their manager were the ones in charge of bringing the beverage and the food.
In sharing their experience performing during the recent MTV VMAs, Suga shared that at first they were unable to carry out the stage performance due to the bad weather condition in South Korea. “We changed our plans and sorted for an alternative option instead. But luckily, we were able to adhere to our initial plan on connecting Seoul and New York on stage, and I think it looked great,” said the 27-year-old rapper-producer.
