The video for “Boombayah,” the debut single of K-pop girl band BLACKPINK, topped 800 million views on YouTube, making the quartet the only K-pop group with two music videos that have achieved the feat. The video reached the milestone on Feb. 24th, emulating the band’s earlier “Ddu-du Ddu-du,” according to YG Entertainment.
“With this, BLACKPINK got to own two music videos that have more than 800 million views as the first K-pop group,” according to YG. BLACKPINK is also the only K-pop band that has a music video with more than 1 billion YouTube views (a feat achieved by “Ddu-du Ddu-du” in November last year).
“Boombayah” was released in August 2016. Following its last EP, “Kill This Love,” dropped last year, the quartet will unveil a new album in the spring. (Yonhap)
