BTS, TWICE, BLACKPINK, TXT, SHINee, IU, And More Receive Platinum Certifications From Gaon
Gaon Chart has announced its latest batch of official certifications!
In 2018, the Korea Music Content Industry Association implemented a new certification system for album sales, song downloads, and online streaming. Starting with music released on or after January 1, 2018, Gaon Chart now certifies albums platinum once they reach 250,000 sales, while albums that have sold a million copies or more receive a “million” certification.
On April 8, it was announced that TWICE’s “Eyes wide open” and TXT’s “minisode1 : Blue Hour” have been certified double platinum for exceeding 500,000 sales, while SHINee’s “Don’t Call Me” has been certified platinum for surpassing 250,000.
Platinum certification for streaming is achieved when a song surpasses 100 million streams. Maktub’s “To You My Light” and AKMU’s “How can I love the heartbreak, you’re the one I love” have received double platinum certification for exceeding 200 million streams each. BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That,” Sandeul’s “Slightly Tipsy,” Oh My Girl’s “Dolphin,” IU’s “Give You My Heart,” and Maroon 5’s “Memories” have been certified platinum.
Congratulations to all of the artists!
