GOT7 and Bambam Bag Awards at 2021 Joox Thailand Music Awards

GOT7 and member Bambam have each taken home an award from the 2021 Joox Thailand Music Awards.

What is Joox Thailand Music Awards?

Joox Thailand Music Awards (JTMA) is an awards ceremony held every year by the JOOX music streaming application. This event recognizes people with outstanding performances in the music and entertainment industries.

This year, the judging criteria were based on scores from three aspects: offline music downloads, streaming on JOOX and sharing over the past year, which make up 70% of the total points.

The 10% of the score includes the votes from people in the music and entertainment industries, and the 20% (except for Top Social Artist of the Year) is based on fan votes within Thailand.
