BTS was also nominated for the Top Social Artist award, which the band has taken twice in a row, in 2017 and 2018. Two Other K-pop bands, EXO and GOT7, were also nominated in the fan-voted category, along with Ariana Grande and Louis Tomlinson.


Another win by BTS in the category is highly likely, having topped Billboard’s weekly Social 50 chart, a measure of an artist’s popularity and level of activity, for the 90th week in a row for the week of April 6, the longest streak ever by any musicians.
