Members of BTS have said they were in "tears", after becoming the first all-Korean pop act to top the Billboard singles chart with their new English single "Dynamite". Jimin, one of seven members, said "tears kept coming", adding in a tweet that he "didn't know what to say". He also thanked their fans, known as ARMY, saying: "I'm out of my mind now but you guys made this [happen]. Dynamite, their first song sung completely in English, reached Just so proud of you guys and how far you've come," another said. Many retweeted an interview with BTS, in which Suga had said he hoped to reach number one on the Billboard charts one day. Dynamite broke records soon after its release on 21 August, with its pastel-coloured dance-heavy video reaching million views on YouTube just 24 hours after its release. The group said they wanted the song to convey "positive vibes, energy, hope, love, purity, everything".
