Epic Games announced Monday that the Korean pop band BTS will premiere “a new choreography version music video” of their single “Dynamite” on the Fortnite Party Royale Main Stage this Friday.

“Dynamite” — an English-sung single from the pop band — debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The official music video became the most watched YouTube video within 24 hours with 101.1 million views.

BTS will reveal “a never-before-seen choreography version” of the music video on Fortnite’s entertainment space, Party Royale Island, which has included entertainment acts.

The song will premiere at 6 p.m. MT on Sept. 25.

  • “We’re always looking to partner with talented artists who are interested in pushing boundaries and finding innovative ways to reach fans,” said Nate Nanzer, head of global partnerships at Epic Games. “BTS is not only incredibly popular worldwide, but their talent, creativity, and forward-thinking attitude made them a perfect match. We’re honored to host their premiere.”

A little more context:

  • Fortnite added a new location to the game called Party Royale, which is a nonviolent social location separate from main area where gamers battle. The area will often include live shows and entertainment experiences. For example, the island hosted an episode of “We the People,” hosted by CNN’s Van Jones.
  • Thomas Wesley, Young Thug and Noah Cyrus also appeared on the sialnd.
  • Fortnite also screened three different Christopher Nolan films, including “Inception,” “Batman Begins” and “The Prestige.”
