BTS’S STORY IN IFPI’S TOP 10
This is not the first time that idols have joined the list and although it is a great pride for fans that BTS is in the first place it is also worth remembering the path that these guys have traced.
In 2018 Bangtan Sonyeondan was ranked number 2 of the best-selling artists of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry . In 2019 they remained within the top 10 occupying the seventh place, but 2020 would give them the opportunity to climb to the top.
