Last April, BBMA announced the nominees in 62 categories “based on the chart period of April 10, 2021 through March 26, 2022. ‘Billboard Music Awards’ finalists and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Luminate.”

BTS won three out of the seven nominations they received. This year, they won Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist and Top Selling Song for “Butter.”

For the Top Duo/Group award, BTS edged out Glass Animals, Imagine Dragons, Migos and Silk Sonic (Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak).
