TIME Magazine credited BTS’ social media growth to their powerful ARMYs, who are described as a “millions-strong fanbase of digital natives” who “avidly consume and promote their content online”. Beyond helping the boys dominate Billboard’s Social 50 chart, they have also helped to launch the septet into greater heights.

The magazine also cited BTS’ numerous accolades thus far; landing three No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 charts within a year, breaking YouTube records with the release of their latest track “Boy With Luv”, and BTS World‘s domination of the App Store charts upon its release.

Prior to landing a spot in the 25 Most Influential People On The Internet list, BTS was also included in the magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People of 2019 list. The septet appeared in the list’s “Artists” section, alongside actors Rami Malek, Brie Larson, Sandra Oh, and personalities such as Michelle Obama and Lebron James.

Additionally, the septet also announced the final stops on their critically acclaimed Love Yourself: Speak Yourself world tour: a historical show in Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd International Stadium on October 11, and a three-day show in Seoul’s Jamsil Olympic Stadium on October 26, 27, and 29.
