BTS’s “Dynamite” Becomes Their 1st Song To Receive RIAJ Gold Certification For Downloads In Japan
The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) has officially awarded “Dynamite” a gold certification in the download category after the song surpassed over 100,000 digital download sales.
Although BTS has previously received gold certifications from the RIAJ for both physical albums and online streaming of songs—”Dynamite” was certified gold in the streaming category last month after surpassing 50 million streams—this latest achievement marks the first time that one of BTS’s songs has received a gold certification for downloads.
According to the RIAJ’s certification thresholds, songs are certified gold once they reach 100,000 downloads and platinum at 250,000 downloads.
Congratulations to BTS on their impressive achievement!
