Fresh off the release of their new summer song, Butter, which has already raked in records for the most-viewed YouTube video in 24 hours and the biggest song debut in Spotify, BTS once again made history today—sweeping all four categories they're nominated in for the Billboard Music Awards. The South Korean superstars extend their winning streak in the Top Social Artist category, taking home the award for the fifth consecutive year.
The Billboard artists also won the Top Duo/Group category, the second time to win the award. Their chart-topping hit, Dynamite, which earned them their first Grammy nomination, took home Top Selling Song and they subsequently bagged the Top Song Sales Artist award. The upbeat disco-pop song has spent 32 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and previously made history as the first song by a South Korean act to debut at number one.
They also become the first Asian act to chart a number one song since Sukiyaki by Japanese singer Kyu Sakamoto in 1963. Dynamite was the best selling single in the US in 2020, the only song to exceed more than a million downloads.
