The idol group made headlines this year when their first English single “Dynamite” hit the number one spot in the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Their coronavirus pandemic-inspired latest track “Life Goes On,” off their “Be” album, became the first Korean language song to top the same chart. “Be,” meanwhile, landed on top of the Billboard 200 charts, BTS’s fifth album to do so.
They also recently scored their first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
In June, BTS donated $1 million to the Black Lives Matter movement, which their fans, collectively called ARMYs, matched.
