BLACKPINK’s YouTube Channel Exceeds 10 Million Subscribers, First Girl Group To Receive YouTube Diamond Creator Award
BLACKPINK have made YouTube history yet again!
On August 16, BLACKPINK is reported to be the first female K-pop group ever to receive Diamond Creator Awards from YouTube after surpassing 10 million subscribers on their official channels.
As of 3 p.m. KST, BLACKPINK had a total of 10,739,217 subscribers on YouTube, the highest number achieved by any single K-pop group (excluding agency-wide channels).
BLACKPINK’s subscriber count is also the second-highest ever achieved by a single K-pop artist, trailing only Psy, who received his own YouTube Diamond Creator Award last year.
YouTube awards content creators with a Silver Creator Award for surpassing 100,000 subscribers, a Gold Creator Award for surpassing 1 million subscribers, and a Diamond Creator Award for surpassing 10 million subscribers.
BLACKPINK’s latest title track shattered countless YouTube records upon its release, with “DDU-DU DDU-DU” most recently breaking the record for fastest K-pop group music video to reach 250 million views. “DDU-DU DDU-DU” also achieved the second-highest number of views in the first 24 hours of its release out of all the music videos in YouTube history (second only to Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do”).
BLACKPINK is currently in the midst of their first Japanese arena tour, which kicked off in Osaka on July 24. They are also scheduled to hold a special concert at the Kyocera Dome in Japan later this year, making them the first foreign girl group ever to perform at the venue.
