    BLACKPINK has set a new world record as the most-streamed female group on Spotify, with over 8.88 billion individual streams.

    The K-pop quartet, consisting of Jennie, Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo, overtook British girl group Little Mix by 400 million streams to clinch the title.

    Guinness World Records cited three BLACKPINK songs as notable contributions to the group’s new world record: “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.

    In January, their smash hit “DDU-DU DDU-DU” led them to become the first K-pop group to reach 2 billion views on a YouTube music video. During that same month, Lisa notably set three new world records, becoming the first solo K-pop winner at the MTV Video Music Awards, the first solo K-pop winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards for the Best K-Pop category, and the most-followed K-pop artist on Instagram.

    BLACKPINK are currently on their “Born Pink” world tour. The group’s oldest member, Jisoo, recently revealed the release date of her highly anticipated debut solo single.
