BTS Takes The Win For Top Social Artist At The 2018 Billboard Music Awards
The boys were up against the likes of Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendes, and Justin Bieber this time around. They managed to snatch the win!
During the acceptance speech, BTS’s leader RM said “Thank you so much to Billboard Music Awards for this precious award two years in a row! This time we had a chance to think about what ‘social’ really means for us and some of our fans told us that our music really changed their lives. And now, we realize that our words truly carry weight thanks to you guys. And ARMYs out there, you guys, your words keep us going and keep us striving!”. Jimin followed up in Korean by saying “This award is one for all of you. Thank you, we love you.”
This second consecutive win makes them the first k-Pop artist to have taken home two American based awards from the BBMAs. Dedicated fans often help their Tweets reach upwards of 400,000 retweets and sometimes even almost a million likes. Their social presence is certainly well known, with their most recent release of “Fake Love” achieving their first ever perfect all-kill.
Congratulations to ARMY and BTS for this achievement.
