BTS bags multiple nominations for Grammy 2023

Los Angeles: BTS created record by becoming the first K-pop sensations to have been nominated in more than one Grammy category in any given year.

The septet was nominated for the best pop duo or group performance for “My Universe,” along with British rock band Coldplay, and best music video for “Yet to Come,” during the official Grammy nomination ceremony livestreamed by the U.S. Recording Academy on Tuesday.

BTS was nominated for best pop duo/group performance with “Dynamite” (2020) and “Butter” (2021). They are the only act to be nominated three years in a row in this category since it was introduced as part of a Grammy revamp of its category structure in 2011, billboard said.

This category is home to both ongoing groups/duos and collaborations by solo artists. Looking strictly at ongoing groups and duos, Coldplay has had the most nods in the category (five), followed by Maroon 5 (four), BTS (three), and The Chainsmokers and Florence + the Machine (two each).

“My Universe” is the second collab by two groups to be nominated for best pop duo/group performance. Coldplay was also involved with the first, “Something Just Like This,” a 2017 collab with The Chainsmokers.

The song debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart and stayed on major US and British charts for a long time.

Three members of BTS – J-Hope (Jung Ho-Seok), RM (Kim Nam-Joon) and Suga (Min Yoon-Gi) — are also credited as songwriters on the Coldplay album, so they would have been album of the year nominees even if BTS were not listed as featured artists.

The other nominees for best pop duo/group performance are ABBA’s “Don’t Shut Me Down” and three collabs by solo artists – Camila Cabello featuring Ed Sheeran’s “Bam Bam,” Post Malone & Doja Cat’s “I Like You (A Happier Song)” and Sam Smith & Kim Petras’ “Unholy.”

“Yet to Come” is the main single off BTS’ latest anthology album, “Proof”, released in 2022.

The music video for the song about the K-pop giant’s nine-year journey was shot in a desert in the US. It received great reviews for its beautiful scenes and numerous visual references to past music videos from different eras in the band’s career.

The video was such a global hit that it surpassed 100 million views in just 10 days after it was uploaded on YouTube.

The other nominees for best music video are Adele’s “Easy on Me,” Doja Cat’s “Woman,” Kendrick Lamar’s “The Heart Part 5,” Harry Styles’ “As It Was” and Taylor Swift’s All Too Well: The Short Film.
