BTS RM finally breaks silence on allegations of ARMY manipulating Music Charts!
BTS ARMY has been accused of manipulating music charts to help the global K-pop sensation septet hold to the top spots.
Since August 2020, BTS has debuted on the top of Billboard Hot 100 every time the band released a song.
In a recent interview with Billboard Magazine, BTS leader RM broke the silence about the allegations.
“It’s a fair question. But if there is a conversation inside Billboard about what being No. 1 should represent, then it’s up to them to change the rules and make streaming weigh more on the ranking. Slamming us or our fans for getting to No. 1 with physical sales and downloads, I don’t know if that’s right … It just feels like we’re easy targets because we’re a boy band, a K-pop act, and we have this high fan loyalty,” the singer said.
On the other hand, #BillboardApologizeToBTS is trending on Twitter.
The BTS Army reacting to the Billboard’s Interview, asking the band if fans have manipulated its success on the mucid charts, demands an apology.
