BTS Becomes The First Artist To Win IFPI’s Global Recording Artist Of The Year Twice In A Row

For the second year in a row, BTS have been crowned the IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year!

Last year, BTS made history as the first Asian act to win the IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) is a non-profit organization that represents the recording music industry worldwide. Its annual Global Recording Artist of the Year recognizes an act’s worldwide popularity across digital and physical music formats (from streaming to vinyl) and covers their entire collection of work.

On February 24, IFPI announced on their official Twitter account that BTS had taken the No. 1 spot on their 2021 IFPI Global Artist Chart. The rest of the top 10, in order, are Taylor Swift, Adele, Drake, Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber, SEVENTEEN, and Olivia Rodrigo.

As several media outlets noted, this makes BTS the first act to win IFPI’s Global Recording Artist Award for two consecutive years.
