Girl band Black Pink have become the most subscribed-to artists on YouTube.
The four-member combo had 65.2 million subscribers to their channel as of Sept. 10, surpassing even previous leader Justin Bieber's 65.1 million. Korean boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, are in third place
Black Pink achieved the feat the same day that their member Lisa's solo debut album was released.
The Thai-born star gets her solo album's title from her full name Lalisa Manoban. "I wanted to put some Thai vibes in my main track and [producer] Teddy arranged it in the way I expected. I wore Thai outfits for the music video and there were some traditional Thai elements in the choreography."
Lisa is the third member of the group after Jennie and Rosé to release a solo single.
Management agency YG Entertainment said her single topped 800,000 pre-orders, the highest for a single album by a female K-pop act.
