From now on, SNEP will only count paid streams for charts and certifications.
For songs and albums too.
New criteria for song certifications;
Gold: 15 million streams (instead of 10 million)
Platinum: 30 million streams (instead of 20 million)
Diamond: 50 million streams (instead of 35 million)
I think this was long overdue... It was absurd seeing songs being certified Diamond every week.
