BTS’ Agust D’s “Daechwita” Music Video Surpassed 200 Million Views on YouTube!
“Daechwita” is the lead single for Suga aka AgustD’s second mixtape “D-2” released by South Korean rapper Agust D, released on May 22, 2020. The mixtape consists of ten tracks, with songs sung and rapped in both Korean and English. Its lyrics share the rapper’s viewpoint on the current world. The album peaked at 11 on the Billboard 200, at 7 on the Official UK Chart and at 2 on the ARIA chart, setting 3 new records for the highest-ranking mixtape in the US, UK and Australia by a Korean solo artist.
“Daechwita” debuted at number 76 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making him the first Korean soloist to chart simultaneously on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200.
The single also debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Rap Digital Song Sales Chart, becoming the highest charting and first song by a Korean artist to do so.
Originally, the mixtape was almost finished in 2019, but AgustD wanted to spend more time editing it to make it sound “more complete”. In total, production took almost 4 years since the last mixtape “Agust D”
D-2 is, according to Agust D, “a documentation of myself as a 28-year old”, and “a documentation of myself from 2016 onwards”. He has said that the mixtape is focused more on talking about the present, comparing it to his last mixtape, Agust D, which was more focused on telling the past.
According to Agust D, the many questions the album raises about society are for the listener to answer, and he is merely putting forth the question.
