BTS is now certified gold in the United States!

On February 4 KST, it was revealed that the Steve Aoki remix of the group’s track “MIC Drop” achieved the gold certification standards for the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

500,000 “units” are required for gold certification. One permanent digital download counts as one unit, and 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams count as one unit.

PSY was the first Korean artist to achieve this feat with “Gangnam Style”, and BTS is now the first Korean group to do so.

Desiigner, who featured in the remix, took to his Twitter to celebrate the achievement:

Eshy Gazit, the CEO of BTS’s North America partner Gramophone Media, also congratulated everyone on the feat:

Congratulations to BTS!
