Twice’s ‘Candy Pop’ goes platinum in Japan

Mar 20,2018
“Candy Pop,” the latest Japanese single from Korean girl group Twice, has been certified platinum by Japan’s recording industry association, the group’s agency said Monday.

The song recently received the certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan for selling more than 400,000 copies, JYP Entertainment said.

It became the third Twice song to be certified platinum by the association after its Japanese debut compilation album “#TWICE” and follow-up single “One More Time,” released in October.

The Japanese association gives the platinum certification to albums that sell more than 250,000 copies.

Twice is scheduled to return to the domestic music scene in early April and hold a series of concerts titled “Twiceland Zone 2: Fantasy Park” in Seoul from May 18 to 20.
