BTS's 'Love Yourself 結 - Answer' becomes 1st ever K-Pop album certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)

AKP STAFF

According to 'Billboard' on January 23, BTS's 3rd full repackaged album 'Love Yourself 結 - Answer' was recently certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) - the first ever K-Pop album to achieve this feat!

To earn this platinum certification, an album must sell exactly 1 million copies within the U.S. In addition to 'Love Yourself 結 - Answer' earning its historical platinum certification, the RIAA has also certified the title track from the same album, BTS's "Idol", as a platinum-selling single. 

Meanwhile, BTS will be performing at the '62nd Grammy Awards' this January 26, ahead of their comeback next month on February 21 with their 4th full album 'Map of the Soul: 7'. Congratulations, BTS!

Amazing to see them breaking strides as Asian artists. There's never been a platinum album for an Asian act in America
