It's the act's third song to go gold.
The Recording Industry Association of America announced this week that BTS' song “Fake Love” has been certified gold -- the Korean septet's third song to go gold in the U.S.
The song was certified gold on Aug. 8, recognized for 500,000 equivalent song units earned in the U.S. “Fake Love” follows last year’s “DNA” and “Mic Drop” as their latest gold single.
One equivalent song unit, as recognized by the RIAA, is equal to: one digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams. The RIAA revamped its Gold & Platinum Awards Program on Feb. 1, 2016, growing from a pure sales certification process to one that includes tracks and streams.
