In 2017 and 2018, BTS won the award for “Top Social Artist”.
Although fans were happy about these wins, many hoped that BTS would receive a nomination based on their music, not just their popularity. That wish has been granted
On April 4, Billboard announced their list of nominees. In addition to being nominated for “Top Social Artist” this year, they have also been nominated for “Top Group/Duo”, which is an achievement for them and for K-Pop as a whole.
BTS are the first Korean act to be nominated in this category.
