By  | 

Making history left and right, phenomenal girl group BLACKPINK achieves another significant milestone on the YouTube platform!

Demonstrating their astounding popularity, renowned K-Pop quintet BLACKPINK has recently reached another achievement on their YouTube channel.

On the morning of November 28, YG Entertainment announced that Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa officially exceeded 70 million subscribers on YouTube, an online video sharing and social media platform. 

“This is the first and most record among all artists in the world,” the agency said. BLACKPINK was able to achieve such amazing accolade in just five years and five months since their iconic and successful debut in August 2016.

 A RECORD-BREAKING GIRL GROUP

BLACKPINK became the most-subscribed music group on the platform in July 2019. They also surpassed popular female singer Ariana Grande as the female artist with the most amount of YouTube subscribers in the world in July 2020. In September 2021, the gorgeous quintet was able to surpass Justin Bieber’s record as the most-subscribed music act with 65.1 million subscribers.

Nonetheless, Bieber still holds the title of being the artist with the second-highest number of subscribers on the platform. Maintaining a close gap, he currently has 66.4 million subscribers on YouTube.

Conquering the world one step at at time, BLACKPINK has already accumulated a total of 32 billion views on their YouTube channel. Notably, “DDU-DU DDU-DU,” the title song of their 2018 EP SQUARE UP, has surpassed 1.7 billion views for its music video, making it the current most viewed K-Pop MV in the world. Apart from this, the music videos to “Kill This Love,” “As If It’s Your Last,” “Boombayah,” and “How You Like That” have also exceeded the 1 billion-mark already. 

The afore-mentioned records show BLACKPINK’s increasing popularity and influence worldwide. They also serve as testaments to the girl group’s continuous success and steady career, which will surely prosper more in the future.

Meanwhile, Lisa just made her solo debut with Lalisa, which sold 736,000 copies during the first week of its release. This made her the first K-Pop female artist to achieve such incredible feat. Jisoo, whose drama is going to air on JTBC, will also make her solo debut soon.
