SEVENTEEN Sets New Record For Foreign Male Artists In Japan With “Not Alone”
On May 14 KST, the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) announced that SEVENTEEN’s third Japanese single album, Not Alone, received a double-platinum certification after selling over 500,000 copies. According to the RIAJ, albums are certified gold at 100,000 copies sold, platinum at 250,000, and double platinum at 500,000.
Not Alone was released on April 21, which means these boys got the achievement in less than a month! This also makes it SEVENTEEN’s second Japanese album to go double platinum after Fallin’ Flower.
To add to the excitement, Not Alone made SEVENTEEN the first foreign male artist in history to ever surpass 200,000 first-week sales with three consecutive Japanese singles!
Thank you to CARATs who always give us support. We’re sincerely grateful that a song in which we promised a reunion with CARATs is receiving so much love. We will become a group that always works hard and remains humble, so that you can be proud of us.
