BTS has been certified platinum for the third time in Japan!
On May 10, the Recording Industry Association of Japan announced that BTS’s latest Japanese album, “Face Yourself,” had officially been certified platinum after recording over 250,000 album sales.
BTS previously set a new record in Japan with the single “MIC Drop/DNA/Crystal Snow” earlier this year, when the group became the only foreign artist to go double platinum with a single released in 2017. According to the RIAJ’s certification thresholds, albums are certified gold at 100,000, platinum at 250,000 and double platinum at 500,000 in sales.
With the success of their third Japanese full-length studio album “Face Yourself,” which topped the Oricon charts immediately after its release on April 4, BTS has now officially achieved platinum status in Japan for the third time.
The group is currently preparing for a comeback on May 18 with the full-length album “Love Yourself: Tear.”
Congratulations to BTS on their impressive achievement!
