The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) has announced its latest batch of official certifications!
In 2020, the RIAJ implemented a new certification system for online streaming of songs, as an addition to its pre-existing certification systems for physical album shipments and digital download sales. According to the new system, songs are certified silver once they reach 30 million streams, gold at 50 million streams, and platinum at 100 million streams.
The latest batch of official certifications includes two for BTS and one for LE SSERAFIM. While streaming milestones used to only be recognized at 100 million streams (platinum) and then at 500 million streams (diamond), the RIAJ has newly introduced double and triple platinum certifications for 200 and 300 million streams, respectively.
After reaching 300 million streams in Japan, BTS’s “Butter” was officially certified triple platinum, while “Permission to Dance” is now certified double platinum with 200 million streams. Including “Dynamite,” which earned a diamond certification last February, these are now BTS’s only songs to earn higher than a platinum certification, and make BTS the Korean act with the three highest RIAJ streaming certifications.
Also earning a new certification was “ANTIFRAGILE” by LE SSERAFIM, which is now certified gold after surpassing 50 million streams in Japan.
Congratulations to BTS and LE SSERAFIM!
