It seems like surpassing significant views on YouTube and K-pop girl grip Blackpink have become synonymous. You may have already heard Blackpink has racked up tons of views on the platform for their official music videos for songs, but what about their other visual material? Well, it seems Blinks will soak up and share love for almost every output from their favorite k-pop group.

During the late hours of October 19, the dance practice video for Blackpink's hit song 'Boombayah' surpassed 200 million views on YouTube. It's only a fifth of the way to the total views its counterpart has received ('Boombayah' official music video has 1 billion views), but considering that many music videos by other famous artists haven't achieved such a milestone, Blackpink certainly deserves their recognition. Yes, results vary from artist to artist, video to video, but bear in mind that the clip we speak of is just a recording from Blackpink's practice sessions.
