New York, NY (Top40 Charts) According to Billboard, pop sensation group BTS is the first K-pop group to hit number one on the Top 100 Artists Chart. Hailing from Korea, BTS formed in 2013 consisting of seven members, Rap Monster (Kim Namjun/Team Leader, Rapper), JIN (Kim Seokjin/Vocalist), SUGA (Min Yoonki/Rapper), J-HOPE (Jung Hoseok/Choreographer & Rapper), JIMIN (Park Jimin/Choreographer & Vocalist), V (Kim Taehyung/Vocalist) and JUNG KOOK (Jeon Jungkook/Vocalist, Rapper, Choreographer). The band is part of the world-wide social phenomenon known as K-POP and are lead artists in the genre. They have been featured in publications from Billboard to the Wall Street Journal to teen outlets worldwide.

"...Love Yourself: Her is the biggest selling K-Pop album in pre-orders ever (over a million in domestic alone), and with the lead single "DNA", they're now the fastest K-Pop group to hit 10 million, 20 million, then 100 million YouTube views. Then there are those killer chart standings - #14 on the UK album chart, top 10 on the US Billboard 200 album chart - while DNA not only reigned over worldwide iTunes charts but rose to #67 on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest position ever for a Korean group."

Named #14 on US Weekly's "Most Influential Celebrities on Social Media" amongst public figures such as Beyonce and Ellen DeGeneres, BTS continue to cement their reputation as global pop stars. Outlets such as Forbes, New York Times, NPR, Entertainment Tonight, The Fader, and The Recording Academy have also taken notice of BTS' ever-growing milestones, which will only continue to escalate throughout the new year.

BTS and BigHit Entertainment spoke to Forbes about The 2017 American Music Awards, which broadcasts LIVE on November 19, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT on ABC: "It is such an honor for BTS and BigHit Entertainment to be invited to the American Music Awards as one of the performers," said a rep from the band's label. "Our partners in the U.S. have helped us pave the way in every way possible, and together we are making history. We are also excited to show our fans, ARMY, the first-ever U.S. live TV performance of 'DNA.'"
