BTS And NCT Earn Gaon Triple Million And Million Certifications; Stray Kids, ITZY, ATEEZ, IVE, EXO’s Kai, TREASURE, Red Velvet, And More Go Platinum
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.
Additionally, ATEEZ’s “ZERO : FEVER EPILOGUE,” IVE’s debut single album “ELEVEN,” EXO’s Kai’s solo mini album “Peaches,” SM Entertainment’s agency-wide winter album “2021 Winter SMTOWN: SMCU EXPRESS,” and TREASURE’s “THE FIRST STEP : CHAPTER THREE” were all certified platinum after selling over 250,000 copies each.
Finally, Lee Mujin’s “Traffic light” was certified platinum in the streaming category after surpassing 100 million streams, while Anne-Marie’s hit song “2002” was certified platinum for surpassing 300 million streams.
Congratulations to all of the artists on their impressive achievements!
