BTS is the only artist to make both lists.

On BTS′ album, Billboard wrote, "Pt. 2 solidifies BTS′ place in the K-pop scene as the band not only showcased their emotional take on hip-hop with the single Run, but proved they aren′t afraid to tackle topics typically avoided by most K-pop acts," as well as praised songs Whalien 52 and Autumn Leaves.

Billboard wrote of lead single Run, "Another 2015 breakout star, BTS caught mainstream attention with I Need U released in spring, that found the perfect balance of their hardcore hip-hop style with sentimental leanings. Seven months later, Run further perfected the formula for a chill-inducing take on those same feelings. It′s a song like this solidifies a group′s place in K-pop."

BTS entered the Billboard 200 at number 171 with The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2. The album has sold 270,000 copies so far, demonstrating BTS′ explosive global popularity.
