Blackpink’s "Kill This Love" surpasses 1.1 billion views on YouTube
Girl group Blackpink’s "Kill This Love" music video surpassed 1.1 billion views on YouTube around 11 p.m. on Monday, the group’s agency YG Entertainment said on Tuesday.
This marks the group’s second music video to reach 1.1 billion views along with its music video of "Ddu-du Ddu-du" (2018).
The music video of "Ddu-du Ddu-du," which achieved 1.1 billion views in March this year, is now close to reaching 1.4 billion views.
"If this trend continues, it will be only a matter of time before ‘Kill This Love’ catches up with 'Ddu-du Ddu-du,' the most viewed music video of K-pop groups," the agency said.
The group’s 2019 release “Kill This Love” debuted at No. 41 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart, the highest on the chart for a Korean girl group.
