What BTS' 'Dynamite' Song Lyrics Really Mean – RM and Suga on Meaning – ELLE

The boys of BTS—RM, Jin, V, Jungkook, J-Hope, Suga, and Jimin—released their first big English single of the new decade, disco pop song "Dynamite," tonight. And as RM put it to USA Today ahead of the song’s release, the song really is a product of this time during the coronavirus pandemic.
The lyrics are a much-needed burst of joy and invitation to join them, dance, and be a light, even when the world seems a little dark. "’Cause ah, ah, I’m in the stars tonight/ So watch me bring the fire and set the night alight / Shining through the city with a little funk and soul / So I’ma light it up like dynamite, woah," the boys sing in the chorus, adding after, "Dynnnnnanana, life is dynamite."
Creating the song was "like destiny," RM told USA Today. "Who would ever think of this pandemic? No meeting, no karaoke, no concerts? Even no walking in the park. So we never expected this song would come fully in English. During the process of making our album…it just came to us."
Suga described the song as being their way to help people during this time: "This is a situation that everybody else around the world is facing, so we just started to explore what can we do right now, what can we do really good?"
The group added during their interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music that "Dynamite" is "made of positive vibes, energy, hope, love, the purity, everything. Recording this song was really fun, and like Jin said, we’re going through difficult times so we tried to have more fun working on this song. We made this song in hopes of giving energy to the listeners. We’re glad this song turned out great and hope a lot of our fans can listen to it to receive the positive energy we tried to incorporate in the song."
