Permission to dance, because BTS’ video for the “MIC Drop” remix by Steve Aoki has just reached a major milestone — it has surpassed the one billion views mark on YouTube.

The song was originally released as a B-side on Love Yourself: Her in September 2017, with the DJ’s remix arriving two months later in November as the second single from the EP.

In the visual for the EDM-heavy version of the song, the video opens with the DJ looking ominous, strolling into a bare room with nothing but his equipment, the septet in a brightly lit interrogation room with just a table and multiple mics. Suga and J-Hope kick things off with their rhymes.

Aoki celebrated the milestone by thanking the group and ARMY for getting the video to one billion views with a special video. “my first music video to ever do that & i’m so amazed by u,” he tweeted July 26. “In honor of these amazing fans I’ve made a BTS megamix with some edits & remixes I’ve made!! Enjoy!!”
