BLACKPINK Adds Another Achievement To Resume: Jisoo, Jennie, Rose & Lisa Reigning Queens Of K-Pop
There is no stopping BLACKPINK’s success. With the rate that Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa are going right now, they have proven why they are officially called the queens of K-pop. As if that’s not enough, the YG Entertainment girl group just added yet another achievement under its belt.
Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa just recently took the top spot from PSY for having the most-watched K-pop MV in 24 hours on YouTube. BLACKPINK‘s “DDU-DU DDU-DU” MV racked up 36.2 million views, PSY’s “Gentleman” MV is second with 36 million views, and BTS’s “FAKE LOVE” MV is third with 35.9 million views.
BLACKPINK‘s “DDU-DU DDU-DU” MV ranks seventh overall on YouTube's list of most-watched music videos in 24 hours. Taylor Swift‘s “What You Made Me Do” MV is in first place with 43.2 million views.
Now, BLACKPINK is officially YouTube’s most subscribed K-pop girl group of all time! Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa have over 9 million followers on the popular video-sharing platform, while the group that they are mostly compared to, 2NE1, has over 4 million subscribers. 2NE1 disbanded back in 2016 when BLACKPINK was just starting their music career.
Additionally, BLACKPINK became the most-followed girl group on Instagram, garnering over 10 million followers on the social media platform. To celebrate the success of their recent comeback, each member opened up a personal account.
In just three days, Jennie had 2 million followers, making her the fastest K-pop idol to reach that number. The 22-year-old South Korean singer and Lisa currently have over 4 million followers. Jisoo and Rose are also quickly catching up with the two.
BLACKPINK’s recent comeback is such a huge success that even top U.S. labels are interested in bringing them to the U.S. to make an American debut. However, YG Entertainment and the girls may be happy with the offer, but they said that they would want to focus on their domestic promotions first.
“BLACKPINK made a comeback after a year, so their domestic promotions are first priority[sic],” YG Entertainment reassured the fans. “They’ve finished recording their next song.”
