BTS' Jungkook earns Platinum Certification for 'Seven'

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) recently announced that BTS's Jungkook had earned platinum certification for his solo single "Seven", which has sold over a million units. This comes after his first gold certification last year for his collaboration with Charlie Puth's, "Left and Right", exemplifying his soaring popularity within the American music market.

RIAA's grading system is based on the number of units sold, with certifications awarded as followed: Gold for 500,000 units, Platinum for 1 million units, Multi-Platinum for 2 million units, and Diamond for 10 million units. The counts are achieved by evaluating album (both physical and digital) sales, digital downloads, and audio and video streaming.

In other news, Jungkook released his solo album 'GOLDEN' worldwide on November 3. The album, inspired by defining moments in Jungkook's career, consists of eleven tracks, including the hit songs "Seven", "Standing Next to You", and "3D (feat. Jack Harlow)". It became a 'Double Million Seller' within just 5 hours of its release, according to the Hanteo Chart. The songs from the new release, particularly the title track "Standing Next to You", have made it to the high ranks on the 'Daily Top Song Global' chart of Spotify, the world's largest streaming company.

Moreover, the album 'GOLDEN' and the single 'Standing Next to You' have been performing exceedingly well across major charts globally. They reached #1 in both the Daily Album and Digital Single rankings on Japan's Oricon chart, again attesting to Jungkook's growing international appeal. The success of 'GOLDEN' and the platinum certification for 'Seven' signal a promising path for Jungkook's flourishing solo career. We look forward to seeing more of this talented artist's work and his impact on the global music industry.
