May 24,2019
K-pop girl group Blackpink’s “Boombayah” surpassed 600 million YouTube views on Thursday, its management agency said.

The video for “Boombayah,” the group’s 2016 debut single, passed the threshold at around 7:25 a.m., according to YG Entertainment.

It is the group’s second music to achieve the feat, following “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du,” which now has 800 million views, making Blackpink the first Korean act to have two music videos with more than 600 million YouTube views.

Its 2017 video for “As If It’s Your Last” is currently on the verge of passing the 600 million-view mark itself.

The quartet’s latest video, for “Kill This Love,” which was released on April 5, passed 300 million YouTube views earlier this month.
