BLACKPINK has beat out Ariana Grande and Eminem, becoming the female artists with the most YouTube subscribers. They also now the fourth most-subscribed artist on YouTube.
According to YG Entertainment, the number of subscribers to BLACKPINK’s official YouTube channel surpassed 44 million at 9:00 a.m. on August 16 KST. With this, they have now surged past Eminem (who has over 43.9 million subscribers) to be fourth in line after Justin Bieber, DJ Marshmallow, and Ed Sheeran.
