So many trophies, too many we can't even count them

BTS have set another record by becoming the first Korean group to go gold in the US. "Mic Drop (Remix)" went certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) over the weekend.

For a song to go gold it has to move more than 50,000 equivalent unites between digital downloads and audio and video streaming. So for example, 150 streams count as one formal unit.

We don't know the maths for this but we're gonna say "Mic Drop (Remix)" has been streamed a whole lot for your boys to be certified gold!

At the moment, "Mic Drop (Remix)" is still in the Billboard Hot 100 for its 9th consecutive week, currently charting at No.84.

Guess we'll just go listen to it again now!
