He adds, “It was just one of those difficult things [because] obviously I couldn’t be in the same room as them. So, I mean, hats off to them again. They got it.”

The songwriter notes that during the “dark” times of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, a lot of music had very “emo feelings,” but their hit single was the opposite, allowing people to “let go of your inhibitions.”

Stewart continues, “The stars aligned and it came together… It was just like this magical moment.”

“Dynamite” indeed exploded when their millions of fans heard it for the first time. Stewart woke up at 4:30 a.m. in London on Aug. 20, the day the video came out, reflecting, “That first day was so magic.”

“I knew this was probably going to be the most important day of my life,” he says. “To be quite frank, I just sat and I watched the video and I actually just sobbed. For me, this is 12 years in the making. The hours that I put in and like the real blood, sweat and tears and the sleeping on sofas and the traveling… Suddenly, you almost forget about them in that moment, because it’s like, this is what we do it all for.” 

Tune in to the Grammys on Sunday, March 14, to see if BTS wins the trophy for “Dynamite.”
