BLACKPINK has solidified their No. 1 position in the world as an artist by surpassing 70 million YouTube subscribers.
According to YG Entertainment, the number of subscribers to BLACKPINK’s official YouTube channel exceeded 70 million on the 28th at 11:34 AM KST. This makes the act the first artist/group to ever achieve the feat in the history of YouTube.
What’s more impressive is that the channel reached the milestone in just 5 years and 5 months since it was opened on June 28th, 2016.
Previously, BLACKPINK showed off their global presence by becoming the first non-English speaking artist to rank in the Top 5 channels with most YouTube subscribers in July 2020. Since then, the quartet has beat out Ariana Grande, Eminem, Ed Sheeran, Marshmello, and Justin Bieber, becoming the world’s No. 1 artist on YouTube.
BLACKPINK achieved remarkable growth by securing millions of subscribers every time they release a new song. Recently, with the release of Lisa’s first solo album LALISA, the number of subscribers increased explosively. The group’s channel now has 32 billion-viewed videos and has amassed 21.3 billion views.
