BTS have been named the best-selling artists in the world by IFPI, an organization that represents the global music industry.
The band beat Taylor Swift, who came in second place. She was previously the best-selling artist of 2019.
Drake was the third best-selling artist, with The Weeknd in fourth place and Billie Eilish in fifth place.
BTS are the first non-western artist to win the accolade and the first artist whose songs aren’t sung mainly in English.
The award is calculated by looking at the worldwide sales, downloads and streams for an artist’s entire body of work.
The boyband was formed in 2013 and consists of seven members, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook.
Other artists featured in the top ten best-selling artists of 2020 list include Eminem, Post Malone, and Ariana Grande.
