On the 9th, the UK’s Guinness World Records announced that Rosé’s ‘On the Ground’ music video was recognized as ‘The most-watched K-pop solo artist’s YouTube video in 24 hours’ on the website.
The music video for ‘On the Ground’ recorded 41.6 million views on YouTube on the first day of its release. Guinness explained that this was a breakthrough of Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ (36 million views), the highest record of K-pop solo artists in the past, in about eight years.
‘On the Ground’ reached the top of ‘Billboard Global’ in the United States, ranking based on the sales of streaming and sound sources collected in more than 200 regions worldwide.
The British Guinness World Records said, “Congratulations to Rosé’s acquisition of the Guinness title.”
The number of subscribers of Blackpink, which has a total of 27 billion-large-view videos on YouTube, is on a steady rise and is currently set to exceed 60 million.
This is also noteworthy as it is rapidly catching up with the number of Justin Bieber subscribers, the unrivaled number one female artist in the world, and the top all artists on YouTube.
