BTS' 'Love Yourself: Answer' & 'IDOL' certified gold, 'MIC Drop' certified platinum by RIAA

BTS received more certifications by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)

In the month of November, BTS' repackage album 'Love Yourself: Answer' and the title song "IDOL" received gold certification. The track "MIC Drop", which was the first K-pop group song to be certified gold by RIAA, has now been certified platinum. 

The RIAA certifies gold to digital singles that have 500,000 Units, and platinum to the singles that have 1,000,000 units.  Each permanent digital download counts as 1 Unit, while 150 on-demand audio and video streams count as 1 Unit. 

Congratulations, BTS!

Only 20 albums have been certified gold this year. This is something most musicians won't have in their whole career. What an honor.

Wow down votes? Seriously?? BTS are singing in Korean yet creating records allover especially in America which all the singers/musicians aim for. I can never understand the immaturity of people who call themselves "fans". Its shameful when one group is working very hard and bringing honor to their country whereas their own fellow citizens are jealous. For what?

And look at people like us who are very happy for BTS and will be happy for other artists too if they achieve such feat.

Okay, guys I know this has no connection to the article, however I cant contain myself so......Burn the Stage movie is releasing in India on 25-Nov and originally this was supposed to release only in 5 cities however we ARMYs managed to get this screened in over 44 cities and still counting. Yay!!!! I am very happy for BTS and proud of fellow ARMYs
