Local Only Popular In Korea & Japan Girl Group Twice Did That
they are doing it the right way. #1 in sk and japan (GGs) first,everywhere else next.
Local group did that!!!!
Whew, good. The international hit list I made had TT in it for a reason.
Errr, I don't want to come off as a negative Once but going Gold ain't really anything to be pleased about. Then again, Twice is a foreign act, for now, so I guess it is impressive.
Is that even a reliable account? Not to be a party pooper, but there is no way knowing if TT actually surpassed 500K considering how we don't know its actual US streams (2016-now) or pure sales that are usually released by Billboard.
Going gold is extremely impressive and something that even some western artist struggle to do and celebrate. How many kpop groups who have western promotions do you think have reached this milestone besides bts and bp.
I don’t know why kpop fans have such a skewed view of what’s an impressive achievement in the west but I figure Bts have something to do with it.
I guess I'm going off my old intern days but if an act only went Gold after being out for a month, it was labeled a flop and record execs would be PISSED. We actually weren't allowed to utter the phrase "go Gold" LOL.
Does anybody know which groups have certified gold????
Easy. Follow Soundscan. That is if Twice and/ or JYP has established their publishing company here in North America.
We’re any of these acts a foreign group who’d never promoted in America with a song that was also not promoted there nor sent to radio or streaming services(Pretty sure twice’s discography was only added to Spotify in late 2018 but I’m not sure)? Makes all the difference
Ha ha. Very true. In that case, Twice is pulling an NWA LOL.
Psy - x5 platinum (5M) for GS
BTS - x2 gold (500k) and x3 platinum (1M each) for songs, and x1 gold and x1 platinum for albums.
Blackpink - x1 gold (500k)
BP also have 2 Platinum for DDU DU and KTL each
Not according to the RIAA
Also I don't trust that Twitter account. I'll believe it if Twice actually get the certification.
true actually let's wait.
