The RIAA has updated their website to show that BTS’s track “DNA” from their mini album “Love Yourself: Her” has met their standard for gold certification, which is surpassing 500,000 “units.” A single permanent digital download counts as one unit, and 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams count as one unit.
BTS became the first K-pop group to achieve gold certification from the RIAA with their “MIC Drop” remix earlier this month. PSY previously became the first Korean artist with a gold-certified track with his hit “Gangnam Style.”
In addition, BTS’s “Love Yourself: Her” recently extended its record for the most sales in Gaon chart history for a single album. It has been announced that the mini album has now sold a total of 1,585,834 units.
Congratulations to BTS!
