Pop group BTS have been named the best-selling artists of 2020 by the IFPI, the organisation that represents the global recorded music industry.
The accolade caps a stellar year for the Korean boyband, who released two chart-topping albums in 2020 – Map of the Soul: 7 and Be.
The boyband beat Taylor Swift, who took the crown last year, into second place.
They are the first non-UK/US act to win the honour, and the first whose songs are not predominantly sung in English.
The award is calculated according to an artist or group’s worldwide sales, downloads and streams, covering their whole body of work.
