BTS’ “Mic Drop” earned the distinction on Feb. 6 with half a million certified units, while “DNA” was certified on Feb. 9 with the same amount. Both songs were released in September on the band’s Love Yourself: Her EP. “Mic Drop” was released in a remixed format in November, an update that was produced by Aoki and featured Desiigner.
