Girl group Blackpink have set a new milestone on YouTube for the most views for a music video by a K-pop act.
Their song "Ddu-du Ddu-du" surpassed 1.9 billion views on YouTube on Sunday, about four years after its release in July 2018. It reached 1 billion views in November 2019.
The song debuted at No. 55 on the Billboard Hot 100, the highest ranking for a K-pop girl group until that point.
Blackpink now have a total of 32 videos on YouTube with at least 100 million views, and their videos have amassed over 24 billion hits combined. The number of subscribers to their official YouTube channel is around 75 million, which is the most for any musical act in the world.
