BTS is one of the most popular K-pop boy bands in the world right now. The septet-composed of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, Jungkook and V enjoy a massive fan following worldwide. The group keeps breaking records and how! BTS again made history. For the uninitiated, they've earned 2020's IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) Global Album Sales Chart. For the unversed, the chart combines global sales of physical and digital album downloads to rank the top albums of the year.
Frances Moore, Chief Executive of IFPI, said, "BTS' success across IFPI's global charts - including the top two positions in this chart - is unprecedented and demonstrates the amazing global appeal of their music. We would like to congratulate the band once again on such a successful year." Following that was BTS' November 2020 release BE (Deluxe Edition) that ranked at no.2. BTS' Japanese album 'Map Of The Soul: 7 - The Journey' also made it to the top 10. The album ranked at No. 8 and was also one of the best selling albums in 2020 in pure sales.
BTS also became the first act to top the Global Album All Format chart with the record-breaking 2020 album 'Map Of The Soul: 7". Talking about it, Frances Moore said, "We have introduced the Global Album All Format Chart to reflect the evolving landscape of the album format and to recognise how artists share their album projects in a variety of ways with their fans across multiple formats." He further added that it's an honour to be able to hand BTS their second IFPI Global Chart Award, following their success as Global Recording Artists of the Year.
Things are going amazing for BTS! The group is all set to take the Grammys stage on Sunday. The members will be performing their record-breaking song 'Dynamite'. Also, BTS has scored a nomination in the Best Pop Duo category for their song Dynamite.
