K-pop has its biggest year yet on Billboard's year-end charts with BTS and GOT7 leading the pack. The boy bands both land on multiple year-end charts that track world music as the groups help K-pop for the scene's best year-end performance.
The performance of those two releases help BTS land at No. 5 on the year-end World Albums Artists chart, which tallies all the work an artist charted on World Albums through the year. The guys are the highest-ever charting K-pop act on this ranking, too, once again snatching the best ranking from EXO, who landed at No. 7 in both 2014 and 2015.
