The BTS ARMY praised the comeback single, with many focusing on the group’s tribute to the late Michael Jackson.
For those of us who lived through the 70s/80s, #BTS_Dynamite is a modernized taste of our childhood, with a tip of the hat to the greats: Beatles, Bowie and Michael Jackson. If this doesn’t solidify that @BTS_twt is for all ages, I don’t know what will.💜https://t.co/hH5JlnS267
Singer Taj Jackson, Jackson’s nephew, also noticed BTS’ homage to the King of Pop.
I have a couple of friends who got to know the BTS guys, and I have heard nothing but incredible things about them, their hard work ethic and being so nice. I wish them all the success in the world. They deserve it👏🏾@BTS_twt 💜@LiamMcEwan@JoJoWright
I’m sitting here crying y’all.
Seeing @BTS_twt, the biggest act in the world, paying homage to my uncle Michael in their #Dynamite music video is super emotional to me. I so needed this uplifting right now! 🙏🏾 And thank you #BTSARMY for showing me and my uncle such 💜.
