Depending on sales of singles and albums, RIAA certifies them as Gold (over 500,000 copies), Platinum (over 1 million copies), Multi-Platinum (over 2 million copies) and Diamond (over 10 million copies). It is calculated with album sales, premium digital downloads, and audio and video streaming.

Currently, Psy is the only K-pop solo artist in Korea to receive RIAA certification, and Lisa has become the second K-pop solo artist to receive RIAA certification after Psy.

To commemorate this success, BLINKs (BLACKPINK fandom) and Lillies (Lisa individual fandom) organized a Twitter party to congratulate the female star for the keyword ‘LISA MILLION SELLER’.

Meanwhile, “MONEY” is a hip-hop dance track with a minimal and sophisticated feel. This especially strengthens the unique musical identity of rapper and hip-hop artist Lisa.
