BTS makes history on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated May 25), as it becomes the first group or duo to rule for five weeks, surpassing its tie with twosome Twenty One Pilots. BTS rises 3-1, becoming the top musical act in the U.S. thanks in part to a boost in social media points.
BTS became the first K-pop act to hit No. 1 on the Artist 100 last June. The Artist 100 measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
