This was a huge night for BTS, who won four awards, including Top Selling Song for “Dynamite.”

Among the event’s other highlights include Pink receiving the Icon Award, Trae tha Truth being honored with the Change Maker Award and Drake landing the Artist of the Decade Award.
Ahead of the awards ceremony, songwriter David Stewart spoke exclusively to E! News about the experience of co-writing BTS’ first entirely English-language single, “Dynamite.”
“Because they’re such an animated fun, almost like happy-go-lucky group, they brought this animation to it,” David told E! News. “That’s what the song needed, because all the lyrics were fun. You know, sing song, ping pong, King Kong. You can’t take yourself too seriously to sing those lyrics.”
