BTS become first ever ARIA Gold-certified K-pop group
Australian ARMYs, this is a big one: BTS have officially gone gold in Australia!
Not only with one track, but THREE BTS songs have been accredited ARIA Gold. The K-pop group have been awarded ARIA Gold for three songs: "DNA", "Fake Love" and "Mic Drop ft. Desiigner (Steve Aoki Remix)".
This makes BTS the first ever K-pop group to receive ARIA accreditation in Australia! Getting ARIA Gold means the tracks have sold over 35,000 units, which includes a combination of physical and digital units, as well as qualifying streams.
The boys have made history on the evening of their latest comeback, with the release of Map of the Soul: Persona set for 6PM KST tonight! The music video for title track "Boy With Luv" featuring Halsey will be released online at the same time.
Congrats Aussie ARMY and BTS!
