Coming off the best year of their career thus far, BTS has one new thing to celebrate as they move into 2018: the group just made history by becoming the first Korean group to have a song certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The song, released in November, is BTS’ first stateside hit, and peaked at No. 28 on the Hot 100 chart. It has remained on that chart for nine weeks and currently ranks at No. 84 (as of the Feb. 3 chart update). The remix of “Mic Drop" has been gaining traction on a variety of other charts, and last week the song debuted on the Rhythmic Songs chart at No. 40, which tracks radio play on stations that cross the divide between pop and R&B/hip-hop.
