BTSs Dynamite Certified 5x Platinum by RIAA

BTS’s global hit single “Dynamite” has been certified 5x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), it was announced on May 11 by Big Hit Music, the group’s agency.

Adding to Their Impressive RIAA Accolades

This is the first time that BTS has received a 5x platinum certification from the RIAA. The group now has a total of nine RIAA platinum certifications, including “Dynamite,” “IDOL,” “Boy With Luv,” “Fake Love,” “DNA,” “MIC Drop,” “Blood Sweat & Tears,” “Not Today,” and “Butter.”

Understanding RIAA Certifications

The RIAA certifies albums and singles based on sales, streams, and digital downloads. One platinum certification is equal to one million units sold. This means that “Dynamite” has sold over 5 million units in the United States.

“Dynamite” is a bright and upbeat disco pop song with a message of hope for fans. Released in 2020, the song quickly became a global hit, topping charts around the world and helping to raise BTS’s profile even further.

The song’s success was particularly notable in the United States, where it became the first Korean-language song to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “Dynamite” also earned BTS a nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the Grammy Awards.

With the 5x platinum certification from the RIAA, “Dynamite” further cements its status as one of the most successful songs of all time. It is a testament to BTS’s talent, popularity, and global impact.
