Lovesick Girls music video hits 300 million views amid controversy
Recently, BLACKPINK’s mesmerizing music video for THE ALBUM‘s single, Lovesick Girls, hits the 300-million-view mark on YouTube, per Soompi.
The feat made happened on Christmas Eve, December 24 (Thursday), at around 9:14 PM KST. That said, Lovesick Girls is now the ninth music video of the band to achieve the feat.
It follows Ice Cream with Selena Gomez, How You Like That, Kill This Love, Whistle, Playing With Fire, DDU-DU DDU-DU, As If It’s Your Last, and BOOMBAYAH.
The music video was released on October 2, which earned criticism from a concerned health care workers’ union.
The union pinned out Jennie’s scene where she wore a nurse costume, saying it insulted the nurses.
YG Entertainment then chopped off the scene immediately and released an official apology statement to address the union’s request and criticism.
