DUBAI: K-Pop band BTS performed a Tiny Desk concert this week — and once again broke a world record.

Their performance was the most viewed on the well-known YouTube series on its first day, which happened in about 25 minutes. 

Hosted by NPR Music, Tiny Desk Concerts are a video series of live performances that have been around since 2008. They have featured some of the world’s most famous stars including Alicia Keys, John Legend, Billie Ellis and more. 

The award-winning seven-member group kicked off the virtual show with their most recent hit “Dynamite,” and fans have been going wild on Twitter.

“Can we talk about Jungkook’s perfect high note at ‘Dynamite?’ The vocals!” wrote one excited user. 

“‘Dynamite’ with a live band (is) everything,” wrote another fan.

What We Are Eating Today: Melted

A group of Saudi friends with a tasty business idea have found sweet success with their chocolate brownie venture.
The pals launched their project, Melted, in Jeddah four years ago to establish their own brand of brownies and their creations have since proved a hit with connoisseurs of the confection.
Melted offers an array of mouthwatering multiflavored brownies including classic chocolate milk, lotus, peanut butter chocolate, and Arabic coffee while its recently released rich, dark chocolate, raspberry brownie bar adds a fruity twist to the range.
Its signature cookie is chewy, warm, and filled with a mix of chocolate chips and Melted also produces seasonal flavors such as birthday blondies, and colorful vanilla fudge bars. In addition, its Karak bars are a cakey combination of black tea, cardamom, and cloves infused with sweet notes of cinnamon.
All the bars are served in jars with the customer’s name printed on the side.
