Blackpink broke records with its pre-release song 'How You Like That' which was released on June 26 at 6 pm KST. The song featuring members of Blackpink Jisoo, Lisa, Jennie, and Rose soared past 40 million views in 8 hours and 37 minutes, and that's how the band broke the record set by BTS with 'Boy With Luv'. This song had reached 40 million views in 10 hours and 8 minutes. This song marks Blackpink's comeback and this is not the only record that the band broke.
The song's launch also scored the 'biggest premiere' in YouTube's history. Yet again, the band broke the record set by fellow K-pop band BTS in February as a total of 1.65 million fans tuned in for the unveiling of Blackpink's new song. The excitement among fans was high as this single marks the band's comeback after a year-long hiatus. The pre-release single is also a teaser of sorts to the full studio album that is set to release in September.
The band is also set to perform for the first time at Jimmy Fallon's late-night show on June 26. The band that enjoys the status of being the most-subscribed to music group on YouTube, with 37.5 million followers, had also featured earlier in June in Lady Gaga's 'Sour Candy' which was part the American singer's latest album 'Chromatica'.
