BLACKPINK overtakes BTS, Taylor Swift as most-watched MV premiere in history

Blinks are savage

BLACKPINK’s comeback single ‘How You Like That‘ is back as YouTube’s highest-viewed music video in the first 24-hour drop.

The girl group gained over 86 million hits during the MV’s first day of release, overtaking BTS ft. Halsey’s ‘Boy With Luv’ which gained a whopping 74.6 million views.

Before BP took the crown, ‘Boy With Luv’ had also previously taken the top spot from their 2016 bop ‘Kill This Love‘. Talk about K-Pop domination.

‘How You Like That’ still

Apart from its 24-hour record, ‘How You Like That‘ also set two more all-time records. One for the biggest YouTube Premiere with 1.66 million concurrent viewers at its peak, and another for reaching 100 million views in record time.

The comeback single also makes for BLACKPINK’s biggest debut in Spotify, breaking the record set less than a month ago by ‘Sour Candy‘ from Lady Gaga featuring, well, BLACKPINK themselves.

Meanwhile, ‘How You Like That‘ has over 157M views as of writing and continues to be the #1 Trending video worldwide.
