BTS Achieves Double Platinum Download Certification In Japan With “Dynamite”
On April 21, it was announced that the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) had awarded BTS’s smash hit “Dynamite” a double platinum certification for digital downloads.
After being released in August 2020, “Dynamite” has achieved this certification after surpassing 500,000 digital download sales in Japan.
According to the RIAJ’s certification thresholds, songs are certified gold once they reach 100,000 downloads, platinum at 250,000 downloads, double platinum at 500,000 downloads, and million at 1,000,000 downloads.
BTS made history last March after earning their first-ever RIAJ platinum certification for downloads with “Dynamite.” Earlier this year, the song also helped BTS became the first-ever foreign artist to earn a diamond certification for streaming in Japan after surpassing 500 million streams in less than two years.
BTS is currently gearing up to make a comeback on June 10.
Congratulations to BTS!
