After years of growing success and popularity, BTS released an English single "Dynamite" in the summer of 2020."Dynamite" lit up the billboard charts and stayed at number 1 for four consecutive weeks, with the only other song accomplishing this feat being “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey.
