Global K-pop powerhouse BLACKPINK set another Guinness World Record (GWR) as the most streamed female group on Spotify after accumulating 8,880,030,049 individual streams.
GWR’s report showed the the group’s top songs include “How You Like That” with 746,198,263 streams, “Kill This Love” with 672,084,360, and “DDU-DU DDU-DU” with 574,613,362.
This new world record adds to BLACKPINK’s achievements as they currently hold multiple world records for the following categories – most subscribers for a band on YouTube, first K-pop group to reach No. 1 on the UK albums chart (female), and the first K-pop group to reach No. 1 on the US albums chart (female).
Moreover, individual members were also achieving various records. In 2021, Rosé became the first artist to reach number one on a Billboard Global chart as a soloist and as part of a group with her debut single “On The Ground.” Lalisa also set three records as a soloist.
Recently, Jisoo announced a solo debut on March 31. She is the last member of the group to do a solo release. — Ronald Espartinez
