    Girls’ Generation has broken through the “Million” plateau in Japan.

    Their self-titled debut Japanese album ‘Girls’ Generation‘ which was released back on June 1st, 2011 (Repackaged Album December 28, 2011) has been certified “Million” by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (or ‘RIAJ’). The certification is based off the total numbers of CDs and DVDs sold to retailers and the RIAJ has certifications of: Gold (100,000 units), Platinum (250,000 units), Double Platinum (500,000 units), Triple Platinum (750,000 units), and Million (1,000,000 units).

    This is quite an accomplishment as the only other Korean artist to be certified Million for an album was BoA who last achieved this back in 2005 with her compilation album ‘Best of Soul‘. KARA‘s second Japanese album ‘Super Girl‘ could be the next to be certified Million as they achieved the Triple Platinum certification.

    In related news, Girls’ Generation is set to release their upcoming Japanese single “PAPARAZZI” on June 27th.
