BTS is simply incredibly strong at this point.
The trio has been voted the global recording artist of the year for the second time in a row, demonstrating their continued dominance of the music industry.
Awarded by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) Global Recording Artist of the Year Award 2021 is the south Korean boy band known as the Bangtan Boys. The award is given annually to the most successful recording artist in the world.
As a result, they became the first act in history to win the award for two consecutive years, making history.
Each year, the award is determined based on the performance of an artist or group around the world in both digital and physical music forms during the course of the year – including music downloads, streams, and physical sales – and is given to them for their entire body of work.
The IFPI announced the prize at the conclusion of an online countdown in which the top ten best-selling artists of the year were unveiled in stages over the course of several weeks.
BTS’ tremendous success over the last year, according to Frances Moore, chief executive of the International Federation of Phonographic Industries (IFPI), is a credit to their originality, hard work, and continual commitment to finding new ways to convey their music to the world.
Because they perform in three different languages, they demonstrate their exceptionally unique worldwide appeal, and their vibrant and enthusiastic fanbase has contributed to their becoming the first artists in history to be at the top of the global artist chart for two years in a row.
BTS, comprised of members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, debuted on the International Federation of Phonographic Industry (IFPI) worldwide artist chart at number two in 2018.
It was in 2020 that they made history by becoming the first Korean act to win the Global Recording Artist of the Year award. They also made history by becoming the first winner to perform mostly in a language other than English.
Known as “Map Of The Soul: 7,” the band is the best-selling act in South Korean history, and their record is the best-selling album of all time in Korea.
BTS was joined at the top of the 2021 chart by Taylor Swift and Adele, who rounded out the top three.
Having previously topped the poll in 2019, Taylor, 32, finished in second place for the second consecutive year. Taylor had previously placed in first place in 2019.
The 33-year-old Adele, on the other hand, came in third, becoming the first female artist to do so since she won the competition in 2015.
Drake, Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber, Seventeen, and Olivia Rodrigo are among the artists who appear in the top ten of the 2021 Billboard Hot 100 list.
The award has been in existence since 2014, with the inaugural winner being the British boy band One Direction, who was voted worldwide recording artist of the year in 2013.
