BTS

BTS are a South Korean 7 piece boy band. They write and produce most of their songs and although originally a hip hop group, their music has evolved to include a wide range of genres. The group has released several albums and performed on several world tours. During their Love Yourself World Tour, they became the first Asian and first non-English speaking act to headline and sell out Wembley Stadium, London, England.

As a result of fans wanting subtitles to translate the Korean language in their music videos, the group launched a video series, “Learn Korean with BTS”. The series consists of lessons on Korean expressions and grammar using footage from existing  content on YouTube and were developed in collaboration with experts at the Korean Language Content Institute.

About

BTS also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy band.  The first members were recruited through Big Hit’s “Hit it” auditions in 2010 and 2011. The original lineup went through several changes before the final group of members was established in 2012. Half a year prior to debut, the members began building their name and creating a relationship with fans through  Twitter and by releasing various song covers via YouTube and SoundCloud.

  • Jin (진) – vocalist
  • Suga (슈가) – rapper
  • J-Hope (제이홉) – rapper
  • RM – leader, rapper
  • Jimin (지민) – vocalist
  • V (뷔) – vocalist
  • Jungkook (정국) – vocalist

Known for their large social media presence, the group were listed by Forbes as the most retweeted artist on Twitter in March 2016. In May, Twitter launched its first ever K-pop emoji, featuring BTS. In October,

Time magazine named the band one of the 25 most influential people on the internet. On November 20, 2017, Guinness World Records revealed that the group had earned a spot in their 2018 edition for “having the world’s most Twitter engagements for a music group”.

The group’s debut single album 2 Cool 4 Skool, the first installment in their “school trilogy” series, was released simultaneously with its lead single “No More Dream” on June 12, 2013. While the album peaked at number five on the Gaon Album Chart and sold over 105,000 copies, “No More Dream” and the subsequent single “We Are Bulletproof Pt.2” were not major hits. Expanding their endeavors into Japan, “No More Dream” was later re-recorded in Japanese and released on June 4, 2014.

The second part to the “school trilogy” was the extended play O!RUL8,2?, released on September 11, 2013, which sold over 120,000 copies to date and peaked at number four. Its supporting singles “N.O” and “Attack on Bangtan” failed to chart high. That same month, BTS starred in their own variety show, SBS-MTV’s Rookie King Channel Bangtan, based on a fake broadcast station, “Channel Bangtan”, through which members parodied variety shows such as VJ Special Forces and MasterChef Korea. At the end of the year, BTS was recognized with several New Artist of the Year awards, including the 2013 Melon Music Awards and Golden Disc Awards and the 2014 Seoul Music Awards.

Their Japanese studio album, Wake Up (2014), released that December, peaking at number three on the weekly Oricon Albums Chart and selling 25,000 copies. Along with re-recorded Japanese versions of older songs, it also contained the original tracks “Wake Up” and “The Stars”. Their first concert tour, 2014 BTS Live Trilogy Episode II: The Red Bullet, was held from October to December.

At the beginning of 2015, BTS toured Japan for the first time with their BTS’s First Japan Tour-Wake Up: Open Your Eyes. They also held their second solo concert in Korea, BTS Live Trilogy – Episode 1: BTS Begins. Their third EP, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 1 (2015), was released that March and was the only Korean album to be included in Fuse’s list of the “27 Best Albums of 2015 So Far” that year. The lead single “I Need U” was a top five hit on the weekly Gaon Digital Chart in South Korea and garnered BTS their first ever music show win on SBS MTV’s The Show. Although the second single, “Dope”, peaked at number 44 on the weekly Gaon Digital Chart, its music video became BTS’ first to accrue over 100 million views on YouTube in October. “Dope” later peaked at number three on Billboard’s World Digital Songs Chart. The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 1 have sold over 300,000 copies to date.

BTS’ fourth Japanese single, “For You”, was released that June to celebrate the first anniversary of their Japanese debut. The single topped Oricon’s daily chart, selling over 42,000 copies within its first day. They also commenced their 2015 Live Trilogy Episode: The Red Bullet world tour, and participated in the Summer Sonic Festival tour in Japan.

In November 2017, the group became the first K-pop group to perform at the American Music Awards. Following the performance, Guinness World Records announced that BTS will be included their 2018 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records for having the world’s most Twitter engagements and specifically for most Twitter engagements by a music group. BTS was also named by Twitter to be the most tweeted-about artist of 2017, and ranked 1st worldwide in yearly social media engagements with 502 million likes and retweets.

They won their second Artist of the Year at the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards, becoming the first act to win the award two years in a row. “Spring Day” later won Best Song of the Year at the Melon Music Awards. That December, they performed on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve to welcome the new year, making them the first K-pop group to be part of the show’s lineup. They also made their Japanese TV music show debut on TV Asahi’s Japan Music Station Super Live on December 22.

On December 12, BTS was represented on six of the Billboard “Year End” Charts. The group ranked No. 1 on the “World Albums Artists” chart, No. 2 on the “World Albums” chart, No. 1 on the “Social 50 Artists” chart, No. 2 on the “Top Artists – Duo/Group” chart, and No. 32 on the “Independent Albums” chart. They also ranked as No. 10 on the “Top Artists” chart and are the only K-pop artists to have made the list.

In January 2018, the Recording Industry Association of Japan announced BTS’ first ever Double Platinum certification for their “MIC Drop/DNA/Crystal Snow” single, the only single album by a foreign artist in 2017 to sell over 500,000 copies and receive certification on the Oricon chart for that year. Later that month, BTS became the first artist outside of the “Big Three” to win both Grand Prize Daesang awards at the Golden Disc Awards and the Seoul Music Awards respectively. In February, both the “MIC Drop” and “DNA” singles were certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, making BTS the first Korean act, and the only K-pop artist ever, to receive this.

On February 8, Big Hit won the award for its new Brand Identity (BI) with BTS’ logo under the Corporate Identity/Branding category within Communication Design at this year’s award presentation, illustrating BTS’ worldwide influence.

On February 11, sales for Love Yourself ‘Her’ surpassed 1.58 million, the highest sales recorded for an album in Gaon Chart history.

On March 2, 2018, J-Hope released his first solo mixtape titled Hope World for free download on Google Drive, streaming on Spotify and SoundCloud, and for purchase on iTunes. The accompanying music video for the title track, “Daydream”, reached 1 million likes in 1 hour 43 minutes, making it the fastest Korean video to reach the benchmark. With 73 No. 1 spots on the iTunes chart worldwide by the end of its first day, Hope World tied with the previous BTS release, Love Yourself ‘Her’, for the most No. 1 spots held by a Korean album on iTunes within the first 24 hours. As of March 5, the album remained at No. 1 on the iTunes Worldwide Charts, marking 5 days at No. 1 and breaking the record for the longest-charting Korean album at No. 1 on the chart previously held by Love Yourself ‘Her’. The album debuted at No. 63 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making J-Hope the highest-charting solo K-pop act in Billboard 200 history. J-Hope also debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Emerging Artists chart, where fellow band mates RM and Suga (as Agust D) both previously peaked at No. 46.

On April 4, 2018, their third Japanese studio album Face Yourself was released. Face Yourself topped the Japanese Oricon Weekly Album Chart for the week of April 2, with 282,000 copies. According to Japan’s Oricon Chart on April 12, BTS’ 3rd Japanese album sold 282,000 copies in the first week (April 2-April 8). This breaks the record by KARA, who sold 275,000 copies of their Japanese album ‘Super Girl’ in the first week of November 2011.

On April 17, BTS were nominated again for Top Social Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, making them the first and only Korean artist to be nominated two years in a row. The following week, they were announced as performers at the show where they will premiere their new comeback single.

On May 1, 2018, Variety reported that BTS would be returning to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, performing a new song from Love Yourself ‘Tear’ titled “Fake Love”.

Little Richard

Little Richard: Good Golly Miss Molly… Keep A Knocking… Long Tall Sally… Lucille… Rip It Up… Slippin’ And Slidin’… Tutti Frutti…

Little Richard (born Richard Wayne Penniman; December 5, 1932 died; May 9, 2020) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He was an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than six decades. His success started in the mid-1950s: his dynamic music and charismatic showmanship laid the foundation for rock and roll.

Such was the success of his career that in the year 2000, Penniman’s life was dramatised in the biographical film Little Richard, which focused on his early years, including his heyday. He was affectionately known as the ‘King & Queen Of Rock And Roll’ due to his flamboyant and oft camp style. In 2013 he announced his retirement.

More about Little Richard

One of the original rock & roll greats, Little Richard merged gospel with New Orleans R&B. While other R&B greats of the early ’50s had been moving in a similar direction, none of them matched the sheer electricity of Richard’s vocals. Although he was only a hit-maker for a couple of years or so, his influence upon both the soul and British Invasion stars of the 1960s was vast, and his early hits remain core classics of the rock repertoire.

It was the rock & roll revival of the late ’60s and early ’70s, though, that really saved Richard’s career, enabling him to play on the nostalgia circuit with great success (though he had a small hit, “Freedom Blues,” in 1970). He had always been a flamboyant performer, brandishing a six-inch pompadour and mascara, and constant entertaining appearances on television talk shows seemed to ensure his continuing success as a living legend. Yet by the late ’70s, he’d returned to the church again. Somewhat predictably, he eased back into rock and show business by the mid-’80s. He maintained his profile with a role in Down and Out in Beverly Hills (the movie’s soundtrack also returned him to the charts, this time with “Great Gosh a-Mighty”) and guest appearances on soundtracks, compilations, and children’s rock records. He never got that much-hungered-for comeback hit, but he remains one of rock & roll’s most colourful icons.
