Watch out, world! The four-woman South Korean girl band, comprised of members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa, is arguably the hottest K-pop girl group in the world. The fearsome foursome has smashed multiple records since getting together in 2016, setting Guinness World Records for the most-watched music videos within 24 hour of release on YouTube with their videos for “Kill This Love” in 2019 and “How You Like That” in 2020, per the organization.
Blackpink is also the highest-charting Korean girl group on the Billboard Hot 100, shooting to no. 13 in 2020 for their song “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez, Billboard reported. Commanding a loyal fanbase across the internet, Blackpink boasts nearly 14 million monthly listeners on Spotify and 72 million subscribers on YouTube. The band has also collaborated with Cardi B and Dua Lipa.
In 2021, South Korea’s then-President Moon Jae-in thanked the girl band for helping elevate K-pop to the world stage.
