BTS took the number two spot on the Global Artist Chart of 2018 announced by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) on Tuesday.

The Global Artist Chart of 2018 was uploaded on Tuesday on the official website of IFPI, the organization that represents the recorded music industry worldwide. 

The seven-member boy band has become the first Korean musicians to make it on the chart, and the only non-English-language artists on the list. 

“BTS took second place on IFPI’s list after the massive global success of album ‘Love Yourself: Tear’, released in May 2018, and ‘Love Yourself: Answer’, released in August 2018,” IFPI said. 

“BTS have established a truly global fanbase – known as the ARMY – and have been instrumental in bringing K-Pop to a global stage,” it said. 

Canadian rapper Drake topped the chart while Ed Sheeran and Post Malone took third and fourth place, respectively. The list also included Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga at eighth and ninth, respectively.
