Red Velvet hits 200 million views

Apr 08,2019
Girl group Red Velvet’s music video for “Bad Boy” (2018) surpassed 200 million views on Saturday, SM Entertainment said.

The music video, which was first released through the agency’s official YouTube channel named SMTOWN in January last year, passed the 100 million-view milestone in May.

This is the group’s first music video with 200 million views.

Red Velvet owns five music videos that have been viewed over 100 million times: “Russian Roulette” (2016), “Dumb Dumb” (2015), “Peek-A-Boo” (2017), “Red Flavor” (2017) and “Ice Cream Cake” (2015).

“Bad Boy” is the lead track off the group’s second full-length album, “The Perfect Red Velvet,” which swept not only local but also Asian music charts immediately after its release last year.

It was also chosen as the first of Billboard’s “The 20 Best K-pop Songs of 2018: Critics’ Picks.”

The group recently released a remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Close To Me” with U.S. D.J. Diplo.
