THis achievement took TWICE popularity on another level!!
The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) created a new certification system for online streaming last year. It added its certification systems for physical album sales and digital download sales and according to the new system, songs become certified silver once they reach 30 million streams, gold at 50 million streams, and platinum at 100 million streams.
Recently, according to its list of certifications (from March 2021), the RIAJ officially awarded TWICE’s 2019 track “Feel Special,” a platinum certification in the streaming category as the song reached 100 million streams.
TWICE has about 14 RIAJ certified songs for streaming and “Feel Special” is their first song ever to receive a platinum certification for streaming.
Twice are only the 1st K-pop female artist and only the second song by a K-pop artist to receive a platinum certification for streaming in RIAJ history. BTS’s Dynamite is first.
