The biggest boyband on the planet is undoubtedly BTS. The Korean mammoths dominated the charts with the release of their song Dynamite and even earned Grammy nominations for their contribution to the musical genre. But even before BTS entered the music scene, it was Kanye West that was ripping apart the charts. And the septet recognized that as they picked Ye’s song to groove to. 

However, in recent years, Kanye is less known for his songs than outbursts publicly. His antics have eclipsed all the gems that he has produced and released so far, and opinions on him are divided. But in 2017, things were still good and BTS picked a song of the rapper during an interview.
