BTS Billboard Chart Facts:
· Billboard Music Award-winning BTS, who are nominated for Top Social Artist this year, scored its first top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart in October with “Love Yourself: Her” -- earning both the highest-charting album ever on the chart by a K-pop act, and the genre's biggest sales week. Since then, the seven-member group tallied its first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Mic Drop," featuring Desiigner. BTS has also spent more than 70 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Social 50 chart, which ranks the most popular music artists across the world's social networks. Collectively, BTS' albums have earned 1 million equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, and the group's catalog of songs have collected nearly 2 billion on-demand streams.
Nominations for the “2018 Billboard Music Awards” were announced earlier this month on NBC’s “Today” and on a livestream from Billboard’s New York office. Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran tie for the most nominations this year with 15 each.
Voting for the two fan-voted categories — Billboard Chart Achievement Award and Top Social Artist — will open in the coming weeks and additional details will be available soon.
