BTS have already broken records with their music video for their brand new song ”Dynamite”. It got over 123 million views in 24 hours. In this video I watch it, review it and analyze it from a musician's stand point. I also discover that it borrows some elements from other hit songs by Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5.

      ya watching the video it definitely gave me like 70's 80's vibes (probably cuz of the people that they might have got some inspiration from like Michael Jackson) with the beginning with the room definitely reminding me of my late bro's room (born in 76) the dancing the colors their dressing and just the vibe in general is very 70's and maybe ealy 80's

    The fact that he doesnt realize is that they filmed it outside and plane is real the background for the second part is real the only cgi was the cars, bts did a full reaction to their video and they literally told everything which was cgi and real

    Glad for the success and reaching more audience with an English song, but for me this is one of their least interesting songs. Check out Black Swan for more interesting recent tune. Fake Love is still my fave, the first one I heard of theirs.

    The whole the mv is (somewhere around) 60 - 80s themed, that’s probably why there’s extra auto tune.

    Bts fans who are arguing that autotune man has alot of auto tune because he has low voice...bro what autotune does is it hits the key that the singer didnt or cant hit...in his case every part that is autotuned in his part are almost all in low keys and those high parts are not really that high so theres no sense if you will argue that he just have a lower voice..just admit it ..hes just handsome

    Just a thought (yes, I'm ARMY, so don't come for me, fellow fans! XD ), you commented that there was too much autotune at the end of V's line, when it transitioned to Namjoons'/ RM's entrance with the mic, but after the second listen-through, I noticed that the autotune seems to directly alter the sound toward RM's voice, both in pitch and vocal style, so I'm wondering whether it was less a case of 'let's autotune this!' and more a case of being an audio equivalent of the way the image changed to RM, so that the sound was less of a singer change and more of a singer transition, if that makes any sense. You have Jungkook coming in just before it happens, and fading out just after, so it feels almost like his voice was the 'catalyst' for the transition. Essentially, what it sounded like on the first listen-through was (broken down into phases) V V & Jungkook V with horrible Autotune Namjoon But on the second listen-through, when I focused more carefully, I noticed more of a slide: V V & Jungkook (maybe Jimin? Hard to tell with the AT, and I haven't watched a line breakdown, so I'mma go with JK) V, Jungkook, Autotune Jungkook more of an atmospheric tool than a vocal for a moment, Autotune/ other tools warping V's voice into.. Namjoon's voice Jungkook's voice fading out as V's autotune faded, Namjoon stronger Namjoon solo I could be wrong, I don't know much about music production, and certainly not the goals here, but that seemed the end effect to me, if not the actual goal. Not gonna blindly defend, as that part was actually my peeve with the song when I heard it the first (thousand) time(s), but after looking again after your comment and hearing *just* that bit and looking closer, that's what hit me.

    I generally dislike 'react' videos where people lift on the success of another video with too many pauses, interruptions and rewinds... But I must say this was none of that, and the comparison with other songs and background analysis definitely gave me some insight I didn't have before, so thanks for that!

    I personally think the autotune comes from V's voice not being as bright as Jimin's, Jungkook's or even Jin's. It has nothing to do with range i think. Its just for his deeper and thicker voice to blend in a bit more with this bright song!
