The seven-boy member K-pop group BTS continues to get headliners around the world. Early this month at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, BTS was awarded the Artist of the Year Award for the second year in a row. BTS with their song “DNA” is the first Korean boy group to get on Billboards main “hot 100.”
The group also became the first to K-pop group to get on top 100 single charts in UK and Germany with their remix of “Mic Drop.” There is a new version of “Mic Drop” remixed by world class DJ Steve Aoki featuring rapper Desiigner. I actually was very surprised to hear the new version on a local radio station while I was driving the other day. Their recent performance to a stand-up audience at the American Music Awards catapulted their fame in the US.
