BLACKPINK Becomes First Korean Girl Group To Receive RIAA Gold Certification With “DDU-DU DDU-DU”
BLACKPINK is now certified gold in the United States!
The group’s track “DDU-DU DDU-DU” achieved the gold certification standards for the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
500,000 “units” are required for gold certification. One permanent digital download counts as one unit, and 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams count as one unit.
PSY was the first Korean artist to achieve this feat with “Gangnam Style,” BTS was the first Korean group to be certified gold with their remix of “MIC Drop,” and now BLACKPINK is the first Korean girl group to reach this accomplishment.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK!
