Recently, it was announced on March 26th that Jungkook’s 2018 track – “Euphoria” sold 500,000 units in the United States making it eligible for a  Gold RIAA certificate.

Though BTS has already achieved several RIAA Gold certifications, but this is the first time a K-Pop idol’s single track that has attained a colossal success in the US.


For a song, single or an album to qualify for an RIAA Gold certification, an artist must have sold at least 500,000 units. “Euphoria” a Jungkook’s solo track which debuted in 2018 has already reached the minimum requirement to qualify.


It is also eligible for a Gold RIAA Certificate. Congratulations! 🍾
