防彈少年團獲得2020年IFPI年度全球唱片最暢銷歌手獎
2021年3月4日–代表全球唱片音樂產業的IFPI宣布,全球超級巨星BTS獲得2020年IFPI全球唱片最暢銷歌手獎。
此特殊獎項是根據個別藝人或團體所有作品過去一年間在全球的數位串流音樂與包括黑膠唱片的實體音樂之銷售數字而頒發。這個獎項的宣布在IFPI宣布IFPI全球暢銷歌手排行榜年度最暢銷的10位歌手時達到最高潮。
這是BTS史以來首座的IFP全球唱片最暢銷歌手獎,在2018年的IFPI全球暢銷歌手排行榜中獲得第二名、2019年則是第七名。他們為第一個贏得該項榮譽的韓國歌手,並且是第一個使用英語以外的其他主要語言表演的獲獎者。
該獎項展現了BTS(由RM,Jin,SUGA,j-hope,Jimin,V和Jung Kook組成)歷史性的一年,他們發行一張又一張破紀錄的專輯。
2020年BTS無處不在,為全球樂迷在這個史無前例的一年中提供了可逃離現實的歡樂時光。《MAP OF THE SOUL:7》於2020年2月發行,是有史以來預售量最大的專輯之一,並迅速在20多個國家中排名第一。日語版的《MAP OF THE SOUL:7 ~The Journey~》於2020年7月發行,頭兩天就銷售超過了500,000張,並成為該市場上外國男歌手最暢銷的專輯。 8月,BTS發行了所向披靡的單曲〈Dynamite〉,這是BTS首次完全用英語錄製,也成為他們有史以來第一張美國單曲,並打破了YouTube和Spotify的開場直播記錄。 BTS於11月發布了《BE (豪華版) 》,主打單曲Life Goes On呼應了COVID-19新冠肺炎,該曲獲得了三大洲的第一名,為令人難以置信的一年劃下句點。
IFPI國際總會總裁Frances Moore表示:「防彈少年團是一種全球現象。他們又展現了一個出色的一年,發行了三張專輯,並不斷尋找富有創造力和吸引力的方式與世界分享他們的故事。他們真正展現了音樂必須帶給世界各地人們歡樂和幸福的力量。
我們要祝賀RM,Jin,SUGA,j-hope,Jimin,V和Jung Kook,我們將會很興憤奮地期待他們未來一年的表現。」
BTS兩度獲得IFPI全球暢銷歌手排行榜的前三名,第二名的泰勒絲為前兩年的冠軍,德雷克則是在5年內第四度獲得前三名。
榜單其他值得注意的地方是隨著最新專輯《After Hours and Changes》的賣座,威肯(#4)和小賈斯汀(#10)重返前十名。威肯一年後重回前十名,而小賈斯汀則自2016年以來首次登榜。怪奇比莉連續第二年進入前五名,而朱斯·沃爾德死後發行的專輯《Legends Never Die》幫助他升至第9名,算是向一位在2019年12月不幸殞落的歌手致敬。

BTS announced as the winners of 2020’s IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award

4th March 2021 – IFPI, the organisation that represents the recorded music industry worldwide, has announced global superstars BTS as the winners of 2020’s IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award.
The unique award is calculated according to an artist’s or group’s worldwide performance across digital and physical music formats during the year, from streams to vinyl, and covers their entire body of work. The award was announced at the culmination of the IFPI Global Artist Chart, which counted down the top 10 best-selling artists of the year globally.
BTS’ win marks their first ever IFPI award, after finishing #2 in 2018’s IFPI Global Artist Chart and #7 in 2019. They become the first Korean act to win the accolade, as well as the first winner to perform primarily in a language other than English.
The award comes after a historic year for BTS (consisting of RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook) who broke record after record with their multiple album releases.
BTS were omnipresent in 2020, providing a welcome escape from the realities of an unprecedented year for music lovers around the world. MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 was released in February 2020 as one of the most pre-ordered albums of all time, and swiftly went to #1 in more than 20 countries. The Japanese-language MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 ~ THE JOURNEY ~ was released in July 2020, passing 500,000 copies within two days of release and becoming the best-selling album by a male foreign artist ever in that market. August brought the release of the all-conquering single Dynamite, the first time BTS recorded a track fully in English, which became their first ever US #1 single and broke records for opening day streams on YouTube and Spotify. BTS closed their incredible year with the release of BE (Deluxe Edition) in November, a response to the COVID-19 pandemic summed up by the lead single Life Goes On, which secured #1s across three continents.
Frances Moore, Chief Executive, IFPI, said: “BTS are a global phenomenon. They have had another outstanding year, releasing three albums, and continually finding creative and engaging ways to share their story with the world. They truly show the power that music has to bring joy and happiness to people the world over.
“We would like to congratulate RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook and we are excited to see what they have in store next.”
BTS were joined in the top three of the IFPI Global Artist Chart by two-time winners Taylor Swift, who finished at #2 after topping the 2019 chart, and Drake, who secured a place in the top three for the fourth time in the last five years.
Elsewhere in the chart there were returns to the top ten for The Weeknd (#4) and Justin Bieber (#10) following the success of their latest album projects, After Hours and Changes. The Weeknd returns to the top ten after one year out, while Bieber charts for the first time since 2016. Billie Eilish celebrates a second consecutive year in the top five, while Juice WRLD’s posthumously released album Legends Never Die helped him to #9, a fitting tribute to the influence of an artist who was tragically lost in December 2019.
