BTS and ARMYs are history makers. Since the beginning, the fans have been passionately supporting the boys in all their endeavours. On 20th May, ARMYs yet again proved their power by helping BTS win “Top Social Artist” award at the Billboard Music Awards, second time in a row.
Last year, BTS made history by bagging the award that has for long been won by top artists like Justin Bieber. This time too, the competition was tough with Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Shawn Mendes in the list but the group was able to claim the top spot.
As stated by the Billboard,
“The Top Social Artist award honors an act that perennially occupies the top slots on Billboard‘s Social 50 chart, a ranking driven by fan engagement on social platforms.”
Since the release of their single “Fake Love”, fans have been actively streaming the video to drive views and engagement. They have been able to break several records including most views in a YouTube music video within 24 hours. Till now, the music video has accumulated 50M+ views and has received a highly positive reaction from fans and celebrities alike.
As reported by the magazine,
“Excited shrieks from fans were near-deafening as all seven BTS members took to the stage to accept, with a sincere speech thanking fans around the globe for their undying support — both in English and Korean.”
In addition to this iconic moment, BTS will be the first Korean act to perform at the Billboard Music Awards. A lot of preparation has been done both by the group and the ARMY so, something big can be expected.
