  1. J-hope, the first member of BTS has announced the release his debut solo album, ‘Jack in the box’, the title represents breaking the mould and growing further. We’d love to hear and see it 💙👑
  2. It’s official after speculation online, Charlie and Jungkook are teaming up for this new song 🙌
  3. BTS are taking a break. It was inevitable. The machine has been working them hardddd. They shared the news during their anniversary event. Related:
  4. Per Deadline: South Korean pop band BTS appeared at Tuesday’s White House press briefing to make a short statement in advance of their meeting with President Joe Biden. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook appeared at the White House lectern and each took turns reading from a short statement on the purpose of their visit: To commemorate AANHPI Heritage Month and to meet with President Joe Biden. Among the topics is the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes. “We believe music is always an amazing and wonderful unifier of all things,” the group said. “…We think equality begins when we open up and embrace all of our differences.” Some journalists shouted questions to the septet, but they did not take questions. Their appearance was immediately followed by remarks from Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council, who told reporters, “So I get to go home and tell my kids BTS opened for me. I did not expect that when I woke up this morning.” The White House has tapped pop culture figures to help in certain messaging initiatives. Earlier this month, Selena Gomez appeared with First Lady Jill Biden for an East Room event focused on mental health. Paris Hilton also visited the White House this month, to talk about child abuse in residential facilities. Angelina Jolie and Olivia Rodrigo also have made visits, and the administration enlisted celebrities and YouTube stars to promote Covid vaccinations. BTS is scheduled to meet with Biden on Tuesday afternoon, but it is closed to the press.
  5. BTS bots at it again and breaking records left and right, how their 5 fans are buying so many tickets  Please someone help me understand as they are known for their Mass buying and fraud sales what is this happening? How their small number of fans who outsold Taylor with 4 albums and Adele with 1 album and ended up being one on IFPI list with such a couple of songs and their Hits album? How their small fandom is affording it? Let me know their fraud doings guys?
  6. Without an album, BTS top IFPI best selling artist list yet again in 2022. Taylor Swift is 2nd with 4 album sales and streams while Adele is 3rd with her year end album '30'
  7. ''BTS' members are having the time of their lives as they find themselves curious and amused by Instagram. The global superstar septet officially launched their personal Instagram accounts on December 6 and crossed 10 million followers within record time. However, it wasn't all smooth-sailing for BTS' V, sending stan Twitter into a tizzy. BTS' V accidentally followed BLACKPINK's Jennie and chaos ensued within the K-pop fandom. However, he immediately retracted and unfollowed her. V took to the fan-community platform, Weverse, to explain that BLACKPINK's Jennie name appeared on his recommendations page and he accidentally followed her. He shared that it is a scary app and hope Instagram gets rid of the recommendations page. Thankfully, fans were understanding of V's situation and showered sweet messages of love and support for V. https://www.pinkvilla.com/entertainment/bts-v-accidentally-followed-blackpinks-jennie-instagram-clarified-situation-weverse-960301 Examples of Amys sheer insanity-
  8. BTS Scores the Biggest Boxscore in Almost a Decade, Thanks to Four Nights at SoFi Stadium The group's four-night L.A. play earned $33.3 million and sold over 200,000 tickets, earning the sixth-highest grossing engagement in Billboard Boxscore history. BTS made its return to the stage for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic with four shows at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. Wrapping last night, Dec. 2, the South Korean superstars boast the biggest Boxscore total by any act in nearly a decade. According to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore, BTS’ four Los Angeles-area concerts grossed a mammoth $33.3 million and sold 214,000 tickets. Those totals make the SoFi Stadium shows the highest-grossing engagement since venues began re-opening this year. Further, it’s the largest gross for run of shows at a single venue since 2012, when Roger Waters earned $38 million over nine shows at Estadio River Plate in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Even further, it’s the biggest U.S.-based Boxscore in 18 years, and the second-biggest ever in the 30-year-plus history of Billboard Boxscore in North America (and biggest ever in California), behind Bruce Springsteen’s 10-show marathon at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. (38.7 million). Overall, BTS lands the sixth best-grossing engagement in Billboard Boxscore history. (A Boxscore is generally defined as a report of all shows that an act plays at a single venue during a given tour, or during a leg of a tour. Sums are based on figures reported to Billboard Boxscore and exclude festivals.) Remarkably, the five engagements that have out-grossed BTS throughout Boxscore history were each at least twice as long as BTS’ four-show sweep. Take That owns the top two spots with eight-date stretches at London’s Wembley Stadium and Manchester’s Etihad Stadium (then called City of Manchester Stadium when the shows played in June 2011). Springsteen and Waters, as mentioned above, played 10 and nine shows, respectively, to accumulate their totals. Meanwhile, the Spice Girls boast the biggest-grossing arena engagement in Boxscore archives, via 17 gigs at the O2 Arena in 2007-08, just out-earning BTS’ SoFi run with $33.8 million. The shows cap a banner year for BTS, following three Billboard Hot 100-topping songs — including a 10-week stretch at No. 1 on the chart with “Butter.” That distinction that separates BTS from the other $30 million-plus club members — including U2 and the Grateful Dead in addition to Take That, Springsteen, Waters and the Spice Girls — none of whom had cracked the top 20 of the Hot 100 within five years of their $30 million grosses. BTS’ simultaneous conquering of the singles charts and the stadium circuit adds to the growing momentum of contemporary acts on the big stage, in addition to Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift, among few others. There’s another angle that sets BTS apart from other acts in this elite circle — which may either be revolutionary or increasingly irrelevant, depending on your spin. News to no one, BTS does not primarily perform in English: The group has managed some major pop hits turning to English in songs such as 2020’s “Dynamite” and 2021’s “Butter,” but the majority of the SoFi Stadium setlists featured Korean-language tunes. It’s certainly a first for a historically non-English-language act to break $20 million in one engagement, much less $30 million. Along similar lines, Luis Miguel owns the biggest Spanish-language Boxscore, with $19.3 million from 30 shows at Mexico City’s Auditorio Nacional in 2006. A South Korean act setting concert-revenue records in the U.S. is undeniably a breakthrough. But while impressive, perhaps it isn’t too surprising. The stateside crossover of contemporary Korean and Latin acts has been building for the last half-decade, with Bad Bunny, BLACKPINK, Maluma and many more tackling arenas outside of their home continents and scaling Billboard’s global charts. And BTS’ recent fusion of English-language pop into its Korean-language catalog perhaps made its stadium triumph inevitable, particularly after the septet had not seen its army of fans live in around two years. Before the COVID shutdown, BTS embarked on a global stadium run with the BTS World Tour Love Yourself: Speak Yourself. Following a string of international arena dates in 2018-2019, the Speak Yourself shows earned $121.9 million and sold 1.05 million tickets in 23 shows in North and South America, Europe and Asia. That tour’s L.A. stop was a double-header at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, grossing $16.7 million and selling 113,000 tickets, making this year’s SoFi shows a two-to-one improvement over BTS’ last area shows. That trek’s big gross from a relatively brief set of shows reflects the way that many Korean acts tour in the U.S. BTS hit Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, out-earning most of their contemporaries in each market but foregoing a full national tour, perhaps due to perceived cultural and language barriers that have long made primarily non-English-language acts consider not playing smaller American cities. While BTS’ most recent shows were in one of those major markets where the group already had a sold-out history, their wide-raging success — on top of a growing roster of familiar global hits — could swing the doors open even further for international acts. All told, BTS has logged reported earnings of $256.9 million across 60 shows and 2 million tickets sold. https://www.billboard.com/music/chart-beat/bts-boxscore-sofi-stadium-1235005581/
  9. BTS Successfully Wraps Up Day 1 Of First Offline Concert In 2 Years BTS successfully wrapped up the first day of their first offline concert in two years! On November 27, BTS performed in front of fans at their concert “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA” at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, United States. More than 50,000 fans filled the stadium to welcome BTS back to the stage with cheers and the enthusiastic waving of their light sticks. The group performed numerous hit tracks, including “FIRE” and “DNA,” to the delight of their energetic audience. BTS also confessed their desire to see their fans through the songs “Telepathy” and “Stay,” utilizing a moving stage to make eye contact with fans all across the stadium. “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA” will continue for three more days for a total of four SOLD OUT shows.
  10. BTS won Artist of the Year—the biggest honor of the night—at the 2021 American Music Awards! The 2021 American Music Awards is taking place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 21. BTS attended the ceremony in person and snagged all three awards they were nominated for, which are Favorite Pop Duo or Group, Favorite Pop Song for “Butter,” and Artist of the Year. For Artist of the Year, BTS was up against Ariana Grande, Drake, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, and The Weeknd. BTS has become the first Asian act in history to win Artist of the Year at the American Music Awards, and this also marks BTS’s third consecutive year winning Favorite Pop Duo or Group. Announced as winners for Favorite Pop Duo or Group, BTS came up on stage to receive their trophy. J-Hope said, “Thank you ARMY, and thank you AMAs so much for this. For three years in a row, wow!” Jin took the mic and thanked their fans, saying, “This is all possible thanks to ARMY. You’re our universe.” RM wrapped up the speech by sharing, “It took four years to be on this stage to get this trophy. Thank you so much. Actually it means to us even more because we’re actually a small boy band from Korea. We just got united by the love for our music, and all we want to do is just spread love, the good vibes and energy through music and performance. But without you guys, ARMY, we couldn’t have done anything. Thank you so much.” Watch them receive the Favorite Pop Duo or Group award: The group was back on stage to receive the Favorite Pop Song award, and Jimin expressed, “Thank you ARMY, thank you AMAs, and thank you everyone for loving our song ‘Butter.'” Jungkook added, “‘Butter’ is a special song to us. We hope it makes you feel smooth like butter.” RM concluded the speech once again. “Thanks to you all, ‘Butter’ has received so much love this year. All we had to do is just put out positive energy despite these hard times. This award truly proves that this song reaches many people’s hearts. Never take for granted. Thank you so much,” he shared. Watch BTS give their speech for Favorite Pop Song award: Lastly, for the Artist of the Year award, RM shared that he forgot what he was supposed to say, but he continued on by saying, “Thank you AMAs, we’re truly honored to be on this stage with such amazing, tremendous artists right over here. We’re so honored. Thanks for that.” After a pause, he admitted, “I’m nervous, yeah.” He gave the rest of his speech. “Four years ago, we gave this first-time-ever TV live performance at this stage, AMAs, it was ‘DNA,’ and we were too excited and nervous at the time. And it’s been a long and amazing ride since then, but nobody could have ever bet on the odds of us standing here receiving this award. Except you all, ARMY. Except you all. Seven boys from Korea, united by a love for music. We met the love and support from all the ARMYs all over the world. This whole thing is a miracle. Seriously, we’ll never take this for granted. Thank you so much. We love you all, we want to give this honor to you guys. Thank you HYBE, thank you staff, all the people.” Suga delivered his speech in Korean, saying, “We made our U.S. TV debut four years ago at the AMAs, and I had no idea we would be able to receive the Artist of the Year. I think it’s all thanks to ARMY, thank you ARMY!” Jungkook shared, “We just wanted to make people happy with our music. We believe that this award opens the beginning of our new chapter. In the past few years, we learned that each and every moment is precious. So in 2022, we want to focus on…” and stopped. V took the microphone and said, “I’m deeply touched by this award. I appreciate your love. Thank you ARMY, thank you AMAs. Thank you, we purple you!” Check out BTS’s speech for Artist of the Year below!
  11. BTS Smashes Katy Perry’s 11-Year Billboard Record With “Permission To Dance” For BTS, the sky’s the limit and they are soaring higher with each new single! BTS in “Permission to Dance” MV | HYBE Labels/Youtube After seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, BTS‘s “Butter” passed the crown to “Permission to Dance” and dropped to No.7. Now, “Permission to Dance” is the Hot 100 king and “Butter” is reigning over the No.1 spot on the Songs of the Summer chart. BTS in “Butter” MV | HYBE Labels/Youtube According to Billboard, this “double coronation” is rarely achieved. In fact, no artist has held simultaneous No.1s on the Hot 100 and Songs of the Summer charts in almost 11 years. The last artist to do it was Katy Perry, back in 2010. Katy Perry in “California Gurls” MV In 2010, Katy Perry’s song “California Gurls” was crowned queen of the Songs of the Summer chart while “Teenage Dream” ruled over the Hot 100 chart. Congrats, BTS! https://www.koreaboo.com/lists/6-members-astro-participated-in-creation-newest-mini-album-switch/
  12. Coldplay's new studio album "Music of the Spheres" will be released on October 15. To promote the album, the band releases a new single "My Universe" with BTS. To my surprise, it is actually amazing. Coldplay's last No. 1 single (Viva la Vida) in the US was back in 2008. This song could very well be their second No.1 13 years later.
  13. And after he saw the name on her top, Oli London's head exploded Anyways lol
  14. While the song may not be everyone's favorite, that can easily be an additional No.1 hit for Megan. I do not think being featured on a pop song will really impact her career, even if the remix is pointless. And if they cared about her so much, they wouldn't demand such a huge sum of money from her to release a remix most people probably won't even remember in a month.
  15. On the July 24 chart, “Permission to Dance” debuted at No. 1 with 140,100 total sales, according to MRC Data, with “Butter” falling six spots to No. 7 and Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” holding at No. 2. But then, something highly unusual happened: The next week, “Butter” returned to No. 1 (leapfrogging Rodrigo and others) and switched places with “Permission,” which slipped to No. 7. ''Rodrigo’s fans claimed that it wasn’t a coincidence. @scrappyseal, noting the reversal, tweeted that BTS had “0 GP [general public] support. A real smash is sustained by the GP support.” Another fan of both Rodrigo and Lipa’s, @lipaanostalgia, described BTS as having “fraudulent ways” and its fans as “involved in chart manipulation” and “mass buying.” ARMY’s crowdfunding efforts are certainly near legendary at this point. As screen grabs of account balances and bulk purchase receipts on Twitter reviewed by Billboard show, BTS fans use PayPal to pool money from ARMY around the globe and make the purchases that will count toward U.S. sales. “ARMY WHERE ARE YOU??” @borakore52 asked in an Aug. 5 tweet. “I have enough for 448 sets of 16 PTD plus 24 Butter!! Even if you cannot buy until later, please get your requests in ASAP!!” Some ARMY organizers then offer to reimburse other fans for purchases. The source of those funds remains unclear, and some BTS fans have expressed concern about revealing more about their methods. “Feeling the need to be a bit more discreet on the timeline about what we do and how we do it,” @RafranzDavis wrote during a funding run in early August. “It’s annoying but thnx to everyone that just gets it.” (MRC Data has a standard process for examining any suspicious chart activity; Billboard would not allow sales funded by an act or its label/management to count toward chart performance.) These efforts have buoyed the group’s singles, as they have sailed to the top of the charts despite BTS’ weaker streaming numbers and radio airplay than some of its pop contemporaries. “It’s a fair question,” says RM of allegations that ARMY’s work amounts to chart manipulation. “But if there is a conversation inside Billboard about what being No. 1 should represent, then it’s up to them to change the rules and make streaming weigh more on the ranking. Slamming us or our fans for getting to No. 1 with physical sales and downloads, I don’t know if that’s right ... It just feels like we’re easy targets because we’re a boy band, a K-pop act, and we have this high fan loyalty.” When asked if HYBE itself organizes fans in any chart manipulation, Shin Young-Jae — president of BTS’ label, Big Hit Music (a HYBE subsidiary) — answers with a chuckle. “Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually had the ability to mastermind such a thing?” he says. “I get that there are market developments [related to BTS] that are head-scratchers for some people. But I don’t believe the U.S. market is one that can be handily topped by downloads alone. We think the songs’ impact was shown in many ways, and we are proud of that achievement.” https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/9618967/bts-billboard-cover-story-2021-interview Those users mentioned in the article are currently getting death threats from extremists Army so bless you Billboard, such a moral move to doxx people. U're such an amazing chart. Always following the rules and morals F.R.A.U.D.S. -Allegedly
  16. Billboard recently acknowledged their charts can be rigged (generally speaking). BTS' fanbase was a focal point of that argument. Their new issue has BTS on the cover, so you can imagine their fanbase wasn't super thrilled. In the article, they comment on how BTS fans organize mass busy to propel the group to #1. BTS member RM responded. Billboard wrote: "On top of these pressures, both the group and the agency are coming under scrutiny for BTS’ recent chart successes, which fans of some competing acts say are achieved through concerted “manipulation” antithetical to the charts’ purpose of accurately highlighting the world’s most popular acts... some noted how the group’s fans, known as ARMY, organize themselves on social media, using tactics like bulk purchases of physical albums and coordinated digital buying to influence chart performance." RM responded: "It’s a fair question... if there is a conversation inside Billboard about what being No.1 should represent, then it's up to them to change the rules and make streaming weigh more on the ranking. Slamming us or our fans for getting to No. 1 with physical sales and downloads, I don't know if that's right... It just feels like we're easy targets because we're a boy band, a K-pop act, and we have this high fan loyalty." After the article went live, #BillboardApologizeToBTS started trending on Twitter. Points have been made Thoughts, Exhale?
  17. Lil Nas X's new song "Industry Baby" debuted at #2. Which according to Billboard is the new #1 Not them low-key knowing BTS stans allegedly will stop at nothing to keep them at #1 (not saying they're using bots, but I'm not not saying that either) Related:
  18. Okay, so people are saying BTS fans does Mass buying to keep their songs up the chart? They are around 14 top 10 hits on BB okay so moving on, I've seen artists like Taylor etc to release multiple vinyls pressing and remixes of the song - does that say mass buying as I believe fans buy all of them? I am truly confused as in my belief we can buy the song once on iTunes and even if you gift a song to somebody then there must be a limit or you can just gift them to 100s of people? Explain, I am behind this knowledge! How can BB source unique IP Addresses or streaming? Not able to understand, I've also seen artists buy playlists to gather more streams recently I saw Beyonce has 600M playlist reach on Spotify while Britney has 167M - how does this make sense? I am not able to understand, you can just get more streams if you are in more playlist won't people skip songs if they don't like? How it works, EXPLAIN! Related:
  19. While their single “Butter” is still topping Hot 100 for the sixth consecutive week, BTS has dropped a new single “Permission to Dance”, co-written by Ed Sheeran. Let’s break another record, Army!! Such a cute song with an amazing message!
