Guess who dethroned BTS? BLACKPINK’s music video for its highly-anticipated comeback single “How You Like That” has set a new YouTube record for 24-hour views.
“The K-pop powerhouse group’s dynamic new single had 82.4 million views in the first 24 hours of release on YouTube, and was the No. 1 trending video on the platform. The view count handily topped the previous record-holders: BTS’ ‘Boy With Luv’ featuring Halsey, which amassed 74.6 million views in the initial one-day period in April 2019, per YouTube.”

Not only did BLACKPINK beat BTS for this record. The Kpop girl group composed of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa also surpassed 100 million views in record time. “How You Like That” reached the milestone in one day, eight hours, and 22 minutes, according to the Soompi article.
“The previous record for the fastest Korean group music video to hit 100 million views was held by BTS’s ‘Boy With Luv,’ which took one day, 13 hours, and 38 minutes to achieve the feat.”
“How You Like That” is the first part of BLACKPINK’s three-step comeback. This will be followed by a second new song in July or August. It will then culminate with the launch of the new album in September.
BLACKPINK guested on the June 26 episode of NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to perform the song for the first time.
“This is very exciting. They have over 1.5 billion — billion — streams. They are unbelievable. Phenomenon is not even the word. You have to invent a new word for this group. Here to perform ‘How You Like That’ from their upcoming album, here is BLACKPINK,” Fallon said when he introduced the group.
This was BLACKPINK’s first appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”. They have previously performed on the shows of James Corden and Stephen Colbert, and on “Good Morning America”.
