Blackpink Takes Over One Direction YouTube Record
Blackpink is definitely in the area and they're here to stay!
When we say kpop is taking over the world, we’re not exaggerating. From being nominated in major western awards shows to breaking records, Blackpink is doing it all. The four-member girl group has recently broken a record that One Direction held formerly.
Blackpink Becomes the Most Subscribed Group on YouTube
YouTube views are a strength for kpop groups generally, but more so for groups like Blackpink, Twice, EXO and BTS. The music videos from these groups always garner the highest views- even more, views than Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande. So, go figure! Right now Blackpink is the only kpop group to have the highest views on one of their music video. Their song Ddu Du Ddu DU is only 50 million short of getting 1 billion views.
But that is not the only YouTube record the group has in their bag now. Blackpink recently beat One Direction and became the most subscribed music group on YouTube. The kpop group currently has 30.1 million followers.
This is not the first time the group has been linked to One Direction. There were rumors flying around a few months back that Jennie and Harry Styles were dating when Harry Styles attended Blackpink’s concert. We don’t know how much truth there was to this as Jennie had just recently broken up with EXO’s Kai.
