BTS are once again being recognised by one of America's biggest tabloid magazines, Us Weekly.

The popular publication listed, "the most influential celebrities on social media," and BTS were the only Asian stars to make the cut.

"K-Pop group BTS topped Billboard’s Social 50 chart for over 30 weeks in a row in 2017, which helped them win the award for Top Social Artist at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards," wrote Us Weekly.

"The Korean pop group beat heavyweights Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande in the category, after their super dedicated fans helped them win the award by tweeting the hashtag #BTSBBMAS more than 300 million times."

The article finished: "The group also won the global award for influence on social media at the 9th Shorty Awards in April 2017."

The list also included many of the world's most famous famous, including pop queens Taylor Swift and Beyonce, reality TV royalty Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, political heavyweights Barack Obama and Donald Trump, and even Ellen Degeneres and The Rock

It looks like BTS are in good company!
