Billboard Selects The Top 10 Artists of The World In 2017, BTS Is In The List

BTS is at it again! They made history as the first K-Pop artist to make it onto Billboard’s Year-End Top Artist Chart!

Billboard just released their Top Artist charts of the year, and BTS ranked as #10 next to global stars like Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, and Drake!

They were ranked higher than legendary artists like Coldplay, Ariana Grande and Maroon 5.

Billboard picks their top artists based on sales data, radio play, and streaming data.

The ranking is based on each artists’ chart performance on the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200 and Social 50, as well as Boxscore touring revenue.

Meanwhile, their newly released “MIC Drop” debuted at No. 37 on the Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, the second K-Pop song to reach the ranking following PSY’s “Gangnam Style”.

With fans all around the world supporting BTS through social media, they ranked #1 on Social 50 Artists chart as well.

In addition, they were ranked #2 on Top Group Artist list, right next to their brothers, The Chainsmokers.

It seems BTS’s streak of breaking records left and right will be continuing strong for the rest of 2017!
