BLACKPINK, the sensational K-pop girl group, has achieved a groundbreaking milestone on YouTube. Their official channel recently surpassed a staggering 90 million subscribers, setting a new record as the most subscribed artist in the world.

As announced by YG Entertainment on the 17th, Blackpink‘s YouTube channel hit the 90 million subscriber mark at 5:36 am on the same day. This achievement comes just over seven years since the channel’s establishment on June 28, 2016. What makes this accomplishment even more remarkable is the substantial growth the group experienced in subscriber numbers, attracting approximately 7 million new subscribers from October 2022 to June 2023. This surge in subscribers can be attributed to Jisoo’s successful solo activities and the group’s highly acclaimed world tour.

BLACKPINK’s YouTube success began in July 2020 when they became the first non-English speaking artist to enter the ‘Top 5 YouTube Subscriber Count.’ Since then, they have surpassed renowned pop icons such as Ariana Grande, Eminem, Ed Sheeran, Marshmallow, and Justin Bieber, solidifying their position as the number one artist in the world. This achievement highlights the group’s influence and global appeal, surpassing language barriers and captivating audiences worldwide.

In addition to their impressive subscriber count, BLACKPINK has garnered an astounding cumulative view count of over 32.2 billion on their official YouTube channel. Their music videos, such as ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU,’ which is nearing 2.1 billion views and the iconic ‘Kill This Love‘ with 1.8 billion views, have shattered records for K-pop groups. With 43 videos amassing over a billion views, BLACKPINK’s dominance on YouTube is unparalleled.

Currently, BLACKPINK is amidst their grandest world tour to date, titled ‘Born Pink.’ This highly anticipated tour has attracted approximately 1.5 million attendees, demonstrating the group’s immense global popularity and the enthusiasm of their devoted fans.
