DNA Has Officially Been Certified GOLD by RIAA

BTS’ "Mic Drop" earned the distinction on Feb. 6 with half a million certified units, while "DNA" was certified on Feb. 9 with the same amount.

BTS is the first Korean group to warrant RIAA distinction, and the second Korean act after Psy.

Also, Mic Drop Remix charted out of Hot 100 this week, but was on the chart for 10 weeks.  It's the longest charting single by a Korean group in Hot 100 history.

Additionally, pre-recorded Vlive for Global Top 10. Click image for link.

Same. Ready for the flimsy “MIC Drop only went gold bc of Aoki/Desiigner/western pandering” arguments to rot.

I just get a lot of pleasure out of BTS constantly topping themselves. Makes it hard to be a naysayer!

DNA was a grower for me, but personal taste aside, it’s really cool to see a full Korean release take off like this. It helps me feel more secure in their abilities to appeal to masses with a very diversified discography.

I was smiling and laughing during their Vlive award. Cracked up at the end with Jin when the smoke things happened. I am so happy and proud of their accomplishments!

Fuck my ass, you CANNOT just spring Namjoon in a suit on me! 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢 🐢

Although Mic Drop didn't have the trajectory I thought it would, all of this - the gold certifications and the Hot 100 records - is still a major achievement. I'm curious to see how their next releases do.
