It goes without saying that BTS and EXO were two of the biggest boy groups of 2016, so much so that their achievements have been now recognised by the popular US-based music website Fuse!

Just recently, Fuse released its annual "Best of" articles and BTS managed to make it onto the site's "20 Best Albums of 2016" with "WINGS", coming in at No.8 on the list.

Not only were BTS the only Korean group on the list, Fuse has nothing but praise for "WINGS", writing "sophomore album "WINGS" amplifies those strengths with more fascinating concepts and wholly accessible productions that don't sound out of place on Top 40 radio" before concluding that “There’s loads to explore in the 15-track album and loads of indication that BTS is just starting to truly spread their wings.”

As for EXO, they managed to make it onto Fuse's "20 Best Songs of 2016" list with their hit single "Monster", which came in at No.19

"Monster" was the only K-pop song on the list and Fuse has nothing but good things to say about it, writing "The K-pop phenoms proved why they're still at the top of the game with this pristine pop smash. While the dark, hip-hop sound pulls the listener in initially, it's that undeniable chorus that layers the ninesome's boy-band harmonies, staccato-notes and ad-libs for another level of pop perfection."

A huge congratulations to BTS and EXO for making it onto Fuse's end of year "Best of" lists!
