July 25,2019
Boy band BTS has been nominated for MTV’s 2019 Video Music Awards (VMA) in four award categories, the TV channel’s website revealed on Wednesday.

“Boy With Luv,” BTS’s latest single featuring Halsey, is competing in the best collaboration category for the fan-voted music awards whose ceremony is set for Aug. 26 at New Jersey’s Prudential Center.

The main track of “Map of the Soul: Persona” is also competing in three other categories: Best K-pop, Best Art Direction and Best Choreography.

The Best K-pop category was newly added this year and five other Korean bands - Blackpink, Exo, NCT 127, Monsta X and TXT - are also competing.

Upon its release in April, the latest BTS album, “Persona,” made a sensation across the globe, becoming the third BTS album to top Billboard’s main albums chart.
