YouTube’s official view count is often different from view counts that are measured in real time. Based on YouTube’s official tally, it turns out that the views for “Dynamite” had reached an even higher number than the 98.3 million view count that was seen on the site at the 24-hour mark.
While it was already reported that “Dynamite” was the biggest YouTube premiere in history, YouTube has now directly confirmed this fact as well, revealing that the YouTube premiere for “Dynamite” had more than 3 million live viewers at one point. The previous record was held by BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That” music video, which had 1.66 million concurrent viewers.
Congratulations to BTS!
