Big Hit Entertainment released a statement that BTS’s “DNA” was also gold certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
“RIAA certified BTS’ ‘DNA’ as a gold digital single last Friday.” — Big Hit Entertainment
This marks their 2nd gold-certified single. BTS achieved their first gold-certified single with “Mic DROP Remix” just earlier this month.
To be certified gold by the RIAA, a song must be sold/downloaded more than 500,000 equivalent units.
To celebrate breaking another record in history, A.R.M.Ys began trending the hashtag, “#DNAwentGOLD”.
