For the last 4 years, fans have actually enjoyed as the Billboard Music Awards—an award program determined by the venerated music publication’s renowned charts, and those determined by (seemingly) American music tastes—as has actually handed the prize for Top Social Artist over to an act that’s tape-recorded barely anything in English.
