BTS Receives Triple Million Certification On Gaon + ITZY And MONSTA X Go Platinum, And More

Gaon Chart has announced its latest batch of official certifications!

In 2018, the Korea Music Content Industry Association implemented a certification system for album sales, song downloads, and online streaming.

Starting with music released on or after January 1, 2018, Gaon Chart certifies albums platinum once they reach 250,000 sales, while albums that have sold a million copies or more receive a “million” certification. Certifications are given when at least six weeks have passed since the album’s release.

On November 11, it was announced that BTS’s “Love Yourself: Answer” has received triple million certification for exceeding 3 million album sales. NCT 127’s “Sticker” also received double million certification for exceeding 2 million album sales. ENHYPEN’s “BORDER: CARNIVAL” has been certified triple platinum for surpassing 750,000 sales, and BLACKPINK’s Lisa’s “LALISA”, Rosé’s “R,” ATEEZ’s “ZERO: FEVER Part 3” have been certified double platinum for surpassing 500,000 sales each. ITZY’s “Crazy in Love” and MONSTA X’s “FOLLOW: FIND YOU” went platinum for 250,000 sales each.

A song reaches platinum status for downloads once it exceeds 2.5 million downloads. K.Will’s “Beautiful Moment,” which is one of the soundtracks of the drama “Beauty Inside,” has now been certified platinum for achieving this feat.

Platinum certification for streaming is achieved when a song surpasses 100 million streams. BTS’s “Dynamite” received double platinum certification for 200 million streams, while Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next,” KyoungSeo’s “Shiny Star,” and Shin Ye Young’s “Why Break Up?” received platinum certification for 100 million streams each.

Congratulations to all the artists!
