BTS, SEVENTEEN, and Stray Kids are in the top 10 of the International Music Industry Association (IFPI)’s ‘2022 Global Artist Chart’.

On the list of the ‘Global Artist Chart’ announced by IFPI on February 23rd, BTS, SEVENTEEN, and Stray Kids ranked 2nd, 6th, and 7th, respectively. Three K-pop groups entered the top 10, reaffirming the power of K-pop.

In particular, BTS has been in the top 10 of the chart for five consecutive years. It first appeared on this chart in 2018 and took second place. In 2019, the following year, it was ranked 7th. After rising to No. 1 in 2020, they remained at the top in 2021, marking the first time in the history of the IFPI ‘Global Artist Chart’ to top the list for two consecutive years.

In addition, BTS is the first non-English act to be ranked in the top 10 of the ‘Global Artist Chart’ for five consecutive years. After releasing the anthology album ‘Proof’ in June of last year, they focused on solo activities and took a break from group activities, but they still proved their power as a team.

SEVENTEEN, which first entered the chart at No. 9 on the “2021 Global Artist Chart” announced last year, raised its ranking by three notches and entered the top 10 of the chart for the second year in a row. Stray Kids, who climbed to the top of the US Billboard 200 twice last year, entered the chart for the first time.

The ‘Global Artist Chart’ is a chart that the IFPI ranks by adding up physical album sales, digital music downloads, and audio and video streaming figures sold around the world every year. American pop star Taylor Swift, who created a craze with her 10th full-length album ‘Midnights’, took the top spot on the chart this time. The third place went to Canadian rapper Drake, who is called the ‘King of Hip-Hop’.
