Who can even keep track of all the YouTube records Blackpink have broken?
After “Kill This Love” broke the record for fastest K-pop group MV to reach 500 million views on YouTube back in July, now it became the fastest K-pop group MV to reach 550 million! To make matters better, the previous record was also held by Blackpink and their iconic “DDU-DU DDU-DU“. They broke that record by a month and a half – it took them 185 days to reach that number with “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and only 140 with “Kill This Love”! Let’s start working on 600 million, shall we?
But why break only one record in a day when you can break two?
Blackpink’s official YouTube channel took Psy’s title of the Korean YouTube channel with the most views. The girls are well on their way to having seven and a half BILLION views.
But that’s still not all. The girls also became the first Korean girl group to get certified gold by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The girls received their gold certification for “DDU-DU DDU-DU” surpassing 500,000 digital sales.
We can’t wait to see what records the girls will break when they finally get a comeback!
