Congratulations, BTS and ARMY!

Skewering through another set of amazing achievements, the worldwide phenomenal boy group BTS has earned platinum certifications for two songs from the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ).

Just recently, RIAJ announced that the K-pop septet’s hit songs “DNA” and “Permission to Dance” are now certified platinum as of September 2021.

Both songs exceeded the cumulative play count of 100 million times. “DNA” is the title song of BTS’ mini-album LOVE YOURSELF 承 ‘Her’ released in September 2017. It is an electro-pop-based track with an addictive whistle and acoustic guitar sound.

Meanwhile, the record-breaking track “Permission to Dance” was released last July 9. It is a light and exciting dance-pop genre with the message “You can dance as much as you like without permission.”

According to the cumulative number of plays, the organization classifies the songs into Silver (over 30 million), Gold (over 50 million), Platinum (over 100 million), and Diamond (over 500 million). They certify them every month and announce the list through its website.

In addition, BTS’ single CD Butter surpassed the cumulative shipment of 250,000 copies. In the album category, it also received a platinum certification from RIAJ in July.
