BTS has simply made background in Japan!
Previously this year, the Recording Industry Organization of Japan (RIAJ) applied a new accreditation system for on-line streaming of songs, as an enhancement to its pre-existing qualification systems for physical cd deliveries and also electronic download sales. According to the brand-new system, tunes are accredited silver once they reach 30 million streams, gold at 50 million streams, as well as platinum at 100 million streams.
In its most recent set of qualifications (dated November 2020), the RIAJ officially granted BTS’s blockbuster “Dynamite” a platinum certification in the streaming group after the song exceeded over 100 million streams in just three months. BTS has formerly obtained platinum certifications from the RIAJ for physical cds, this most recent success marks the first time that one of their songs has been accredited platinum for streaming.
Additionally, “Dynamite” is now the initial track by any type of international team in RIAJ history ever to get a platinum accreditation for streaming– and just the 2nd total tune by an international musician, complying with Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” (which went platinum last month).

“each of which went beyond 50 million streams, in addition to a silver qualification for” Your Eyes Tell,”a Japanese song that was co-composed by Jungkook.

that have gotten official streaming certifications from the
RIAJ. The group’s hits”What is Love?”and”YES or YES “were both officially accredited gold, while their Japanese track”Sweet Pop”went silver after exceeding 30 million streams.
