According to the Official Chart’s Statement, BTS replied most beautifully.
“We feel humbled and honored to have earned a new personal best on the UK Official Singles Chart.” They added,
“First and foremost, we give all credit to the ARMY—without their support and love from day one, we wouldn’t have come this far.” They went on to say,
“Dynamite was created in the hopes of bringing some vibrant energy that the world needs right now more than ever. If it made one person happier, then that’s more than enough for us.”
The scores achieved by “Dynamite” in its first week in the remaining three countries (the United States, Japan, and France) have not yet been announced.
