K-pop girl group Blackpink had cause for a double celebration Tuesday after its music videos for “How You Like That” hit 500 million views in the fastest time ever for a K-pop act and “Ice Cream” hit 200 million views on YouTube.
According to the band’s agency YG Entertainment, the music video for the group’s single “How You Like That” hit 500 million views on 3:51 a.m., 73 days after it was released.
This is the fastest time for any K-pop act’s music video to hit the 500 million view mark, and also bested the group’s own record of 111 days it had set with “Kill This Love” (2019) by almost 40 days.
“Ice Cream,” the band’s collaboration with pop star Selena Gomez, also hit a new mark on Tuesday morning, at 2:06 a.m., 10 days after it was released on Aug. 28.
“This is the second-fastest speed to reach 200 million views for a K-pop girl group, after ‘How You Like That’ which hit 200 million views in a week,” the agency said.
