The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) (日本レコード協会, Nippon Rekōdo Kyōkai) is an industry trade group composed of Japanese corporations involved in the music industry. It was founded in 1942 as the Japan Phonogram Record Cultural Association, and adopted its current name in 1969.

The RIAJ's activities include promotion of music sales, enforcement of copyright law, and research related to the Japanese music industry. It publishes the annual RIAJ Year Book, a statistical summary of each year's music sales, as well as distributing a variety of other data.

Headquartered in Minato, Tokyo, the RIAJ has twenty member companies and a smaller number of associate and supporting members; some member companies are the Japanese branches of multinational corporations headquartered elsewhere.

The association is responsible for certifying gold and platinum albums and singles in Japan.

Transcription

Luv me, luv me, luv me Luv me baby The chime of the afternoon You're invited to my dreams again With a sleepy I try to hold in my yawn At lunch I'm full of a choice I like I'm hiding my yawn with my hands This and that I'm thinking about you I wonder why Floating or sinking What? In my head is Honey apple pie The impact is too sweet I don't want to not be able to meet for three days, baby I can't ask you "When is the next?" anymore I want to say it clearly but I'm a little scared Is this real love? Baby luv me, luv me, luv me This smile I'm only showing you I need you by my side Look a step forward, it's so close I'm dizzy It's like a first love Hey hey, I think there's a magic of love Give me energy with your voice Because it's surely a lovely word I want to talk with you Twinkle twinkle (So I'm in love with you) My words Don't come out again, the way I want to That's not it Even though it should be more gentle Isn't it simple? I'm hopelessly surrounded by you I love you more than anyone else In the end, it's my imagination again, baby We don't like lies so immediatly call me Just waiting is a no Somebody's thing Before it's too late Baby luv me, luv me, luv me I want you to only look at me I need you by my side Looking in the mirror lightly make up Seems like I became a little prettier Hey hey, pinky yellow navy, today's lucky color I'd like to ask you about our future Because it's destiny, we're drawn together It's a tiny, bit agonizing. It's all your fault (So I'm in love with you) Too gloomy Mondays bye bye Come on, we gotta have fun Even with any kind of tomorrow, if I'm holding your hand A rainbow bridge will be formed Give me your love, yeah Baby luv me, luv me, luv me This smile I'm only showing you I need you by my side Look a step forward, it's so close I'm dizzy It's like a first love Hey hey, I think there's a magic of love Give me energy with your voice Because it's surely a lovely word I want to talk with you Twinkle twinkle So I'm in love with you So I'm in love with you

RIAJ Certification

In 1989, the Recording Industry Association of Japan introduced the music recording certification systems. It is awarded based on shipment figures of compact disc or cassette tape which was reported by record labels. In principle, the criteria are limitedly applied to the materials released after January 21, 1989.

Certification awards

Currently, all music sales including singles, albums, digital download singles are on the same criteria. Unlike many countries, the highest certification is not called "Diamond" or "Platinum", but "Million".

Thresholds per award
Gold Platinum 2× Platinum 3× Platinum Million Multi-Million
100,000 250,000 500,000 750,000 1,000,000 2,000,000+

Old criteria (until June 2003)

Before the unification of criteria and introduction of music videos category in July 2003, a separate scale had been used for certification awards.[2]

Format Type Thresholds per award[2]
Gold Platinum 2x Platinum Million 3x Platinum 4x Platinum
Albums Domestic 200,000 400,000 800,000 1,000,000 1,200,000 1,600,000
International 100,000 200,000 400,000 600,000 800,000
Singles Domestic 200,000 400,000 800,000 1,200,000 1,600,000
International 50,000 100,000 200,000 300,000 400,000

Digital certifications

Certifications for songs and albums released digitally began on September 20, 2006, using download data collected since the early 2000s.[3] From 2006 until 2013, there were three categories for certifications: Chaku-uta (着うた(R), "Ringtone"), Chaku-uta Full (着うたフル(R), "Full-length Ringtone") (i.e. a download to a cellphone) and PC Haishin (PC配信, "PC Download") for songs purchased on services such as iTunes. On February 28, 2014, the Chaku-uta Full and PC categories were merged to create the Single Track (シングルトラック) category.[4]

While digital album certifications are possible, only certain album have rarely received this certification since the beginning of digital certifications, including the 2011 Songs for Japan charity album.[5] and Hikaru Utada's sixth studio album Fantôme among others.

Format Thresholds per award[4]

Chaku-uta (R) 500,000 750,000 1,000,000
