It is the fifth-highest of the association’s six-level record sales certification scale.

This is the seven-member act’s third time it has won the Japanese record certification.

With its single released in May last year, “Blood Sweat & Tears,” the group first received platinum status before getting double platinum with another single, “MIC Drop/DNA/Crystal Snow,” which dropped in December. Double platinum is given to a record that sells more than 500,000 copies.
