K-pop superband BTS has topped nine of Billboard`s year-end charts for 2021, including the year`s top duo/group category.
Yonhap News Agency quotes Billboard as saying that BTS ranked No. 1 on the lists of Top Artists – Duo/Group, Hot 100 Artists – Duo/Group, Billboard 200 Artists – Duo/Group, Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Artists, Digital Song Sales Artists and World Albums Artists.
The band`s 2020 hit song `Dynamite` led the year-end Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, while `Butter` stood atop the Digital Song Sales list. Its fifth studio album `BE` took the No. 1 title on the top World Albums for 2021.
“BTS dominates internationally,” said Billboard in a posting on its website. “The seven-piece South Korean group is the year`s top artist, and has the year`s top song, on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. recaps.”
BTS has gone big in 2021, having three Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers under its belt — `Butter`, `Permission to Dance` and `My Universe`, a collaborative effort with British rock band Coldplay.
