South Korean sensation BTS is one step closer to their dream of winning a Grammy Award as the band has been nominated in the best pop duo/group performance category by the Recording Academy for their chartbuster track “Dynamite”. The nominations for the 63rd Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday night, according to Recording Academy’s official website.
“Dynamite”, which released on August 21, is the group’s first full-fledged English language single and their career’s first Billboard Hot 100 No 1 hit.
BTS, whose full name is Bangtan Sonyeondan (Bulletproof Boy Scouts) or Beyond The Scene as they are known to global audiences, also became the first pop act from South Korea to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Dynamite”.
BTS has often described “Dynamite” as a song full of zest, positive vibes and dealing with life one step at a time as one feels “heavy” amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
It is also the closing track of their album ‘BE’, which was launched last Friday.
Apart from ‘BE’, BTS also released ‘Map of the Soul 7’ album earlier this year.
Previously, BTS’s album ‘Love Yourself: Tear’ was up for best recording package in 2019, but had they won, the award would have gone to art director HuskyFox. They also made history at last year’s ceremony by being the first K-pop group to present an award.1 ☆ The Creator:
