BTS Breaks Destiny’s Child’s Record as Group With Most Billboard Music Awards Wins

South Korean pop superstars BTS bagged three awards at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards (BBMA) on Sunday, bringing their total wins to 12 and beating U.S. girl group Destiny’s Child’s record of 11 awards.

BTS won three out of the seven awards they were nominated for this year — Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist, and Top Selling Song for their hit single Butter.

The group has been winning at least one trophy at the awards since 2017. In 2021, BTS won all four categories they were nominated in.

The group currently has 12 awards, surpassing Destiny’s Child’s record of 11 for the group with the most Billboard Music Awards ever. Destiny’s Child was unbeaten for 17 years.

BTS’s win for Top Duo/Group was also their third, tying them with British group One Direction for having won the most awards in one category.
