The latest “Dynamite” drop in Fortnite will come courtesy of BTS

BTS

BTS/Big Hit Entertainment

Die-hard Fortnite players are very familiar with dynamite. Whether you get it from a vending machine or a supply llama, all dynamite is essentially the same. It blows stuff up. Specifically, it deals 70 points of damage to players and 800 to structures.

There are those who would argue that BTS is equally incendiary. Ever since the K-pop boy band exploded onto the music scene, it has detonated a string of hits…

Ah, forget it. There’s no way I can keep that up. (Maybe I’m running out of fuse?) I’ll just get to the point.

BTS will drop its new music video, “Dynamite”, in Fortnite on Friday (September 25).

“But wait,” I hear you saying. “There’s already a video for ‘Dynamite’. It came out over a month ago.”

An astute observation.

The new version, however, is a choreography video. Which means you can dance to it. But more about that later.

Party Royale mode

The group will appear as part of the Fortnite: Party Royale game mode, which has previously played host to the likes of Diplo, Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and Anderson .Paak.

It all takes place Friday at 8:00 p.m. EST. Prior to that, as of Wednesday, you’ll be able to download the two new BTS-choreographed emotes that will allow you to dance along with the new video.

“We’re always looking to partner with talented artists who are interested in pushing boundaries and finding innovative ways to reach fans,” said Nate Nanzer, head of global partnerships at Epic Games. “BTS is not only incredibly popular worldwide, but their talent, creativity, and forward-thinking attitude made them a perfect match. We’re honored to host their premiere.”

Pop culture in 2020 is a weird, weird thing.

Boom.

I have done a lot of different things over the course of my life and professional career. I have interviewed Oscar and Grammy winners and written cover stories for glossy newsstand magazines. I have played guitar in a rock band on national TV and run an independent music label for which I wrote all of the PR and marketing materials. In my spare time, I sweated out a novel about a world where raccoons are kings and dragons are real.
