BTS Wins Big at the Radio Disney Music Awards
BTS continued their winning streak at the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards.
The K-Pop sensations took home four trophies at the June 22 ceremony, held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, including best duo/group, best song that makes you smile (“DNA”), best dance track (Steve Aoki's "Mic Drop" remix featuring Desiigner), and, unsurprisingly, fiercest fandom.
The group was unable to be present to accept their awards, but released an acceptance speech video online. Several A.R.M.Y.s were also on site to accept the fiercest fandom award on behalf of BTS' large following.
The RDMAs follow a big month for BTS. In May, they released their third Korean studio album, Love Yourself: Tear, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 200. To date, it is their highest charting album in the Western market, as well as the first K-pop album to top the U.S. albums chart.
Both "DNA" and "Mic Drop" were recorded for BTS' fifth EP, Love Yourself: Her, released in 2017. Steve Aoki's "Mic Drop" remix came out two months later, in November. Its music video has accumulated over a quarter of a billion views on YouTube and over 110 million streams on Spotify.
