Twice goes platinum for the ninth consecutive time in Japan

Girl group Twice was certified platinum for the ninth time by the Recording Industry Association of Japan, this time for the group’s second full-length Japanese album.

According to the group’s agency JYP Entertainment, shipments of Twice’s latest Japanese full-length album “&Twice” (2019) have surpassed 250,000 copies, certifying it a platinum record.

This makes all of the group’s nine releases in Japan certified platinum, starting with its first Japanese album “#Twice” (2017). More recently, the group’s singles such as “One More Time” (2017) and “Candy Pop” (2018) have also reached the milestone.

In 2018, Twice became the first foreign female act to be certified double platinum when “Wake Me Up” shipped over 500,000 units.

The Recording Industry Association of Japan certifies albums by the amount of shipments, starting with gold for 100,000 copies, platinum for 250,000, double platinum for 500,000, triple platinum for 750,000 and million for 1 million copies.
