BLACKPINK rallies behind Marshmello, Justin Bieber, and Ed Sheeran as they become YouTube’s fourth most-subscribed artist.
BLACKPINK recently released a teaser poster for their upcoming single. The track, featuring Selena Gomez, will drop on YouTube on August 28.
The collaboration between the two artists surprised the fans and followers as no one expected it. But, the fandoms have since become eager to hear the new single.
The upcoming single is, reportedly, part of the K-pop group’s three-part comeback. The first part emerged a few weeks ago in the form of their now-hit single, How You Like That. Their next album, which will drop on October 2, will, then, consummate Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo’s ultimate comeback this year.
100,000 YouTube users subscribe to BLACKPINK everyday
Since the emergence of How You Like That and Sour Candy, BLACKPINK has received over 100,000 subscribers each day on YouTube. This makes their “influence” on the platform as “unrivaled” in the world of K-pop, according to Allkpop.
The figures, also, reportedly, come in parallel with the number of views that their recent singles have gained. Reports said that How You Like That has broken several records upon its release, including the most viewed material on the platform within 24 hours.
The most-subscribed female pop artist on YouTube
After reaching their 44 million-mark, BLACKPINK becomes the most-subscribed female pop artist on YouTube. They have since surpassed several international female artists including Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna.
Lisa, Rosé, Jisoo, and Jennie’s clique is the only female pop group from Korea that made into the top 30 list. All in all, though, BTS, which is an all-male K-pop group, joins them at the 11th spot.
The fourth most-subscribed music artist today
BLACKPINK also surpassed Eminem’s record at the fourth spot in the list of the most-subscribed music artist on YouTube, according to Soompi. The American rapper and songwriter has a total of 43.9 million subscribers, placing him on the fifth spot.
To date, Marshmello, Justin Bieber, and Ed Sheeran are on the first three spots on the list. The “Sorry” singer aces the list with his incredible 56 million subscribers. The “Happier” and “A-Team” artists place at the second and third spots, respectively, with their 47.7 and 45.3 million subscribers.
Reports noted that the number of YouTube subscribers is one of the “indicators” of international recognition. With BLACKPINK’s track record, they have proven their incredible popularity. This, reportedly, happened just within four years since their debut in South Korea and a year and a half in the United States.
