“Dynamite” is BTS’ latest English-sung single. The song debuted at No.1 on Billboard Hot 100 and maintained that feat for two consecutive weeks, first-ever for a Korean pop act. The official music video also became Youtube’s most viewed music video in its first 24 hours with 101.1 million views.
The video — a never-before-seen choreography version of BTS’ “Dynamite” — will premiere on Friday, September 25 at 8:00 PM EDT.

Following the premiere, players can enjoy “Dynamite (Tropical Remix)” listening party with karaoke graphics to sing and dance along.
Additionally, starting September 23 at 8:00 PM EDT, players can purchase a pack with two emotes choreographed after BTS. These new moves will let players bring some BTS style to the premiere or anywhere in Fortnite! The “BTS Dynamite Pack” will cost 800 V-bucks.
