In July the group confirmed that a new song is on its way. They said: “We are preparing an album for the second half of this year, but decided to first release a single because we wanted to reach our fans as soon as possible,” they revealed on the Korean broadcasting app V Live. “Due to COVID-19, people around the world have been going through tough times and we wanted to share some positive energy with our fans.”They  further added, “The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like ‘MIC Drop’ and ‘Waste It on Me.’ We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh.”

The music video for “Dynamite” will drop on  August 21 at 1 p.m. KST. BTS will also perform the song  at the MTV Music Video Awards, where they are nominated for three awards.
