Japan's Association of the Recording Industry (RIAJ) announced their latest official certifications!

Earlier this year, the RIAJ implemented a new certification system for streaming songs online to complement its existing certification systems for sending physical albums and selling digital downloads. Under the new system, songs will be certified with silver as soon as they reach 30 million streams, gold with 50 million streams and platinum with 100 million streams.

In the newly announced series of RIAJ certifications (dated October 2020), the BTS hit single "Dynamite" received an official gold certification after exceeding 50 million streams. It was the fastest song by a Korean artist who has ever done this feat. It's also the second track from BTS, which has received gold streaming certification from the RIAJ after its 2019 song "Boy With Luv".

BTS also received silver certification for its 2018 title track "IDOL" after exceeding 30 million streams. Apart from "Dynamite" and "Boy With Luv", which have now both been awarded gold, BTS has also received silver with "DNA", "Fake Love", "Lights" and "Stay Gold" in Japan.

In the meantime, TWICE received official silver certifications for both the Korean version of "TT" and their recently released Japanese song "Fanfare". TWICE was previously silver in Japan with the Japanese version of "TT" and their songs "YES or YES", "What Is Love?", "Likey", "MORE & MORE", "Dance the Night Away". "And" Heart Shaker "- in addition to gold with their hits" Feel Special "and" FANCY ".

Finally, BIGBANG received its first RIAJ streaming certification with its 2015 hit "BANG BANG BANG".

Congratulations to all three artists!
