BTS also released not one, nor two, but three full-length albums in 2020, including February's Map of the Soul: 7, July's Japanese-language Map of the Soul: 7 — The Journey and November's Be. And that's not all: just two weeks after the release of their latest studio set, BTS earned their first-ever nomination at the upcoming 2021 Grammy Awards, for best pop duo/group performance for the aforementioned "Dynamite."
Meanwhile, Swift came in second in the poll, no doubt thanks to the smash success of Folklore and Evermore, the two surprise albums she dropped during the pandemic. (Earlier this summer, Folklore spent eight non-consecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200 and became the only album of 2020 to sell more than one million copies. Evermore, on the other hand, rang in the new year by spending its second consecutive week at No. 1 since its Dec. 11 release.)
And while The Weeknd came in third place, other artists fans voted for in the poll included Mariah Carey, Harry Styles, Blackpink, Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga and more.
