[Article] 170523 [Report@Star] "The things you should know about BTS" The five points picked by the US Rolling Stone



BTS won the Top Social Artist award at the BBMA. The other nominees for the category are Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes. BTS surpassed other outstanding nominees and seized the trophy.

The US music media Rolling Stone posted a special article about BTS on the 22nd online. Rolling Stone analysed the reasons behind BTS's popularity under the title "BBMA Winners BTS: 5 Things You Should Know About the Kanalyzedsations". 


#BTS write and produce socially conscious K-pop.

Rolling Stone evaluated, " While other K-pop acts focus on songs about heartbreak and partying, BTS have connected with audiences by touching on topics such as mental health (2015 album track "Whalien 52" tackles loneliness), politics (see member Rap Monster's collaboration with Wale titled "Change") and even female empowerment ("21st Century Girl" has been performed on Korean television)." They also added that the members participate in creating their songs which is rare in the KPOP market.

#They've sold out U.S. arenas.

Rolling Stone reported, "BTS had played small theaters on two different American tours, but their 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III: The Wings Tour saw the band selling out arenas stateside. The tour was originally only set to include three U.S. shows at Newark's Prudential Center, Chicago's Allstate Arena and Anaheim's Honda Center, but after tickets sold out within minutes, two more dates were added in Newark and Anaheim."

# BTS are monster sellers around the world.

They also mentioned the success of BTS's album in 2016. Rolling Stone wrote," 2016 album Wings being Korea's best-selling album of the year, their sales are strong even in territories where fans don't speak their language." and added that they received higher ranks on Billboard chart including other charts in the US, UK, and Japan.

#The odds were stacked against them.

Rolling Stone described, "The odds were stacked against them.". They pointed out that Bighit Entertainment where BTS debuted in 2013, was a small label and entertainment company until BTS succeeded in 2015 with "I NEED U". They also added, "Psy, CL, Wonder Girls, BIGBANG and Girls' Generation – all come from huge agencies like SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment"

#Their social media following is no joke.

They also pointed out that all members stay active on their SNS. Rolling Stone reported, "Twitter (where 5.9 million followers currently see the members posting personal messages, selfies and playlists), Facebook (4.3 million), YouTube (3.9 million), Instagram (3.6 million), plus an additional 5 million on Korea's popular V app". BTS has shown their power with SNS. BTS is the 3rd artist to achieve the most number of #1 on Billboard Social 50 chart after Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, building their way to the Billboard Music Awards.
