BLACKPINK set another amazing record yet again! Today, Monday, November 11th, BLACKPINK’S ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ hit 1B views on YouTube!
While this view count alone is a massive achievement for the girls, they managed to set a groundbreaking record with it.
As of today, BLACKPINK is the only K-POP group in history to ever hit 1B views on a music video. This is just insane! The only Korean act who was able to reach this milestone before BLACKPINK was K-Pop solo artist PSY with his music videos ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Gentleman’.

‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ was released in June 2018, which means that the video only took 17 months to hit 1B – but this isn’t the music video’s only achievement…
‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ was the most-watched K-POP music video back in January and also the most-watched K-POP music video in general in 2018. The video also hit 11M likes today on top of that!
Aaaand, this isn’t the only good news that we’ve received today as BLACKPINK also won 3 PCA awards last night! They won in all the three categories that they were nominated for: ‘The Group of 2019’, ‘The Music Video of 2019’ and ‘The Concert Tour of 2019’.
