Sorry BLACKPINK, but BTS has claimed the YouTube throne!
By Bandook - April 15, 2019
K-Pop girl band BLACKPINK, who made history with their debut at Coachella, have had to concede two crowns to the world’s biggest boyband, BTS. With Boy With Luv (ft Halsey), the Bangtan Boys have now smashed the ceiling on two existing records held formerly by BLACKPINK’s Kill This Love music video, ‘Most Viewed Video In 24 Hours’ and ‘Fastest To 100 Million Views’.
The second record serves to cement BTS’s all-conquering popularity and craze, reaching the milestone one day quicker than BLACKPINK (the former reached there in 1.6 days, the latter in 2.6 days).
K-Pop is, quite literally, the flavour of the day, the week and (probably) even your year. The explosion of the Korean pop scene worldwide means that we’ll be seeing synchronised dance moves, loud, colourful videos and way-too-pretty girls and boys and a rise in international ARMYs for some time to come.
Personally, we think BTS is going to hold on to this record for some time.
FUN FACT 1: BTS has two songs that have reached 100 million views the fastest (IDOL being the other).
FUN FACT 2: The top 3 music videos to reach 100 million views the fastest are all by K-Pop artists.
