They lit it up like dynamite.

SSAK3 is a project group consisting of three veterans in the industry, Lee Hyori, MC Yoo Jae Seok and Rain. Since their release of “Beach Again”, no one has been able to take over them, until “Dynamite” that is.

Melon 24hits is a new chart format that took over when the music giant scrapped their real-time charts. The “24 hour” chart works by refreshing hourly for the rankings of songs that are the most streamed and downloaded within the last 24 hours. Previously, the real time charts worked based on rankings every hour rather than 24 hours. This makes it even harder for songs to attain top spot.

“Dynamite” has seen phenomenal results, including hitting over a hundred million views within the first 24 hours of its release of the official music video. In other news, the first performance stage for “Dynamite” can be viewed on the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards on the 31st of August at 9am KST.
