BLACKPINK has just achieved a historic feat on YouTube!
On May 26 at around 2:18 a.m. KST, BLACKPINK’s music video for their 2019 hit “Kill This Love” surpassed 1.8 billion views on YouTube.
“Kill This Love” is only the second K-pop group music video in history to reach the milestone—following BLACKPINK’s own “DDU-DU DDU-DU“—and only the third overall (the first being PSY‘s “Gangnam Style“).
On top of already being the only K-pop group ever to hit 1.8 billion views with a music video, BLACKPINK has also now become the first K-pop artist ever to reach the milestone with more than one music video.
“Kill This Love” was originally released on April 5, 2019 at midnight KST, meaning that it took the video just over 4 years, 1 months, and 21 days to hit the 1.8 billion mark.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK!
