On December 10 local time, TIME made the announcement that BTS has taken the title this year. In a video, RM spoke about how their 2020 included the pandemic and the cancellation of their tour, but it also featured them reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“What gave us hope and joy this year was our fans and members,” said Jimin. “Our daily lives such as working on music, dancing and rehearsing together, were the source of hope and happiness for us.”
“We exist because of the many people who are listening to our music,” said Jin. Jungkook added, “We climbed up our way slowly, so it feels like we grew together,” and the others agreed. He continued, “We know each other on a deeper level.”
RM commented, “We came this far in the U.S. thanks to [our fans] ARMY.” BTS also spoke about singing “Dynamite” in English and the discussion about the definition of “K-pop,” being compared to the Beatles, and more.
