[MHN Roh Pooleun] BTS earned their first ever Grammy Award nomination for their hit song 'Dynamite!'
The effervescent single 'Dynamite' landed its first Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper this year. BTS has one of the two top-selling albums of the year in 2020 and they might have another one in last week's 'BE.' The disco-driven, English-language 'Dynamite' had a strong case for 2021 Grammy nominations.
The song is a mix of electric-synth disco and bubblegum pop, marking BTS's first single sung completely in English. After its release this August, the song reached up 101.1M views by the end of its first day, becoming the most-viewed music video premiere on YouTube. Until this moment, it racked up over 640M views.
They were nominated for the 'Best pop Duo/Group Performance' category, alongside other pop giants like Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Bon Iver, and Justin Bieber and Quavo.
BTS became the first K-pop act to win a Billboard Music Award and make the top 10 of the Billboard 200 charts in 2017. Later that year, they made their US television debut, performing at the American Music Awards. This year, they bought home two prizes at the American Music Awards.
The Grammy Awards will be broadcast on January 31, hosted by 'The Daily Show's Trevor Noah.
Here are BTS's stage performance on James Corden's 'The Late Late Show' and MTV VMAs.
