BTS, ITZY, TWICE, IZ*ONE, And BoA Earn Multiple Gold And Silver RIAJ Certifications For Streaming In Japan

The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) has announced its latest batch of official certifications!

Last year, the RIAJ implemented a new certification system for online streaming of songs, as an addition to its pre-existing certification systems for physical album shipments and digital download sales. According to the new system, songs are certified silver once they reach 30 million streams, gold at 50 million streams, and platinum at 100 million streams.

In the RIAJ’s newly announced batch of certifications (dated August 2021), both BTS and ITZY received multiple official certifications for streaming. Notably, ITZY’s 2020 hit “WANNABE” became their first song ever to earn a gold streaming certification in Japan after surpassing 50 million streams. BTS’s “ON” and “Permission to Dance” were also both certified gold after reaching 50 million streams each.

Additionally, ITZY received three official silver certifications for their songs “DALLA DALLA,” “ICY,” and “Not Shy,” all of which surpassed 30 million streams.

Meanwhile, BTS earned a total of six silver certifications for “Fire,” “Crystal Snow,” “Don’t Leave Me,” “Magic Shop,” “I’m Fine,” and “Make It Right,” extending their record as the artist with the most songs to have received official streaming certifications from the RIAJ.

TWICE also received a silver certification for their recent Japanese single “Kura Kura,” extending their record as the female artist with the most songs to have received official streaming certifications from the RIAJ.

Finally, IZ*ONE’s “Panorama” and BoA’s “Merry Chri” were both certified silver after surpassing 30 million streams each.

Congratulations to BTS, ITZY, TWICE, IZ*ONE, and BoA!
