Blackpink Just Reached a Major Milestone on YouTube
Blackpink just hit a major YouTube milestone.
The pop music stars are officially the first Korean act to reach 20 million subscribers, according to a press release from the streaming site. Whatsmore, they're one of just 20 artists in YouTube history to ever hit that many subscribers. Blackpink is currently No. 45 on the Global Top Artists Chart, with their breakout hit "DDU-DU DDU-DU" holds the No. 26 spot on the Global Top Songs chart.
Blackpink is having an amazing year so far. In January it was announced that the group would make history by performing at Coachella in April. They're the first female K-pop group to perform at the popular festival. Coachella announced Blackpink's participation in the festival, along with the rest of the lineup, at the top of 2019. The quartet confirmed the news in an Instagram post after the fact.
"@coachella 2019 see you there #BLACKPINK #COACHELLA #2019 LINEUP," the group captioned a post.
The performance at Coachella is set to mark Blackpink's official U.S. debut, though the group has a fanbase there. The girl group is currently represented by YG Entertainment, and recently signed a deal with Interscope Records in October.
Blackpink hasn't addressed their latest milestone.
