Congrats to the legends for their 3rd gold!!!!!!!!!ahmagahplz.png chuplz.png  Altogether 1.5M units sold. The HIGHEST for a Korean Artist ever.

 

I want pinned articles on naver's homepage about this.

 

I want the whole Korea to know that the group they almost fucked over and mocked them that they will never succeed to see that these boys are putting their home country on the map. Talent and hardwork won in the end. I'm really proud of bts. Now let's get them their first RIAA Gold Album Certification! Fighting U.S Armyssuperheroh.png

I had a question.. does anyone know if it’s better to continue using Spotify or switch to Apple or tidal? It’s nice to see the monthly Spotify streaming numbers but heard the others might be better since it needs lesser steaming to count as album equivalent..

Okay, I'm just spit-balling here. 

 

The last SPS figures we got for Tear and Her were: 

 

 

YouTube counts towards RIAA certification. 

 

YouTube US Streams from release until 8/12 for DNA: 54,788,337

 

YouTube US Streams from release until 8/12 for MIC Drop: 37,924,252

 

If we break those into album-equivalent, DNA earns Her 36,525.558 additional albums. MIC Drop earns Her 25,282.834 albums. 

 

Using the last-known SPS figures, that would be a total SPS of 416,808. 

 

Comparing the SPS from week to week, it looks like Her climbs about 5,000 each week. Using the last few weeks as an example, DNA and MIC Drop are pulling in 905 album-equivalent streams from YouTube. For ease, let's say that Her gains about 5,900 SPS per week. 

 

Approximately 84,000 album sales needed, gaining 5,900 a week: Gold in about 14-15 weeks? 

 

Take all of this with a grain of salt and feel free to nitpick my math and methodology. I'm also not 100% sure that MIC Drop counts towards RIAA certification. But if DNA does, wouldn't it make sense that MIC Drop would? Also, maybe Serendipity counts? I can't find Serendipity's numbers on BTS' Artist Insight page. 

 

---

 

Now for Tear. 

 

YouTube US Streams from release until 8/12 for Fake Love: 36,603,493. 

 

Album-equivalent would be 24,402.32. That would be an SPS of 352,402.

 

Tear will be harder to guesstimate because it varies a lot between weeks. The last four weeks, it's gained 12,000 SPS, 12,000 SPS, 7,000 SPS, and 9,000 SPS. I think I'm going to go conservative and say it gains around 8,000 SPS per week. 

 

YouTube views are also hard to gauge. In the last two weeks, it gained 949 albums and then 839 albums. I'll say 800. That would be 8,800 SPS per week. 

 

147,600 SPS needed, gaining 8,800 a week: maybe somewhere around 16-17 more weeks for Gold?

 

Once again, perhaps Singularity counts, but I don't know the US streams to estimate how much it's added. 

 

I do think sales for Her and Tear will spike when Answer is released. I think a lot of people will go to buy Answer and pick up Tear and Her, too. We'll see. 

 

And so ends my completely novice research and math.

I don’t think there’s a difference in how many streams are necessary? Spotify premium counts more than the free one, but other than that it’s the same, I think. I think (though I’m not sure) that Apple Music and definitely Tidal pay the artists more per stream.

Apple Music, because the artists get better shares there

so roughly 1 AM stream = 2 Spotify streams

I would recommend APPLE music since the streams weigh more than Spotify. Majority of US residents use AM over Spotify since majority of people use Apple products. I believe a good chunk of US-ARMY use Apple music over Spotify during the comeback season to be honest. However, big fanbase accounts on Twitter should convince more US-ARMY to stream on Apple since the streams count more (1 stream on AM = 2 streams on Spotify premium).

Thanks for the clarification.. I wasn’t aware it until recently.. I downloaded the album on apple but was using Spotify for streaming. No one talks about It.
