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.
In the RIAJ’s newly announced batch of certifications, BLACKPINK’s 2020 hit “Lovesick Girls” was officially certified platinum after surpassing 100 million streams in Japan. The group also earned a gold certification for their 2022 title track “Shut Down,” which surpassed 50 million streams.
Meanwhile, the clean version of BTS’s Jungkook’s official solo debut single “Seven” (featuring Latto), NewJeans’ “Super Shy,” and LE SSERAFIM’s “Eve, Psyche & The Bluebeard’s wife” were all certified gold after surpassing 50 million streams each.
Congratulations to all of the artists!
