Blackpink's 'Boombayah': Dance practice video reaches 200M views, Internet calls K-pop group 'legendary'
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.
In the dance practice video, members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa pull out some steamy, slick and bodacious moves to the infectious sounds of 'Boombayah'. Not only are Blackpink talented artists with music that includes intoxicating singing and skillful rapping, but are also incredible at dancing. Check out our top five Blackpink tracks. Taking to their social media, Blackpink announced the new 200-million-view milestone with a poster and screenshot of the achievement. Check out their post by clicking here.
On Twitter, the group thanked their fans for the achievement and wrote, "#BLACKPINK '붐바야 (BOOMBAYAH)' DANCE PRACTICE VIDEO HITS 200 MILLION VIEWS @YouTube BLINKs worldwide, thank you so much!" One fan wrote of 'Boombayah', "Legendary debut song as it should be." One fan added, "see what happens when you hire a good choreographer." Many fans are also hoping for the group to release a dance practice video for 'Pretty Savage': "WE NEED PRETTY SAVAGE DP TOO."
