Blackpink Lisa’s ‘Money’ becomes fastest K-pop performance video to cross 300M views
Looks like fans of Lisa are having a couple of eventful weeks. We first had Lisa in LA as she went on a US press junket, met up with the likes of DJ Snake and supported her friend, Indonesian singer NIKI Zefanya, at the 2021 HITC music festival. And after returning to South Korea last week, Lisa made headlines as she tested positive for Covid-19. Since then, fans have been sending her supportive messages. They even decided to cheer her up by helping her viral song ‘Money’ achieve another milestone.
Lisa had her solo debut in September with the hit single album ‘Lalisa’. The Blackpink star broke several records, made history and even earned two Guinness World Records entries as ‘Lalisa’ made YouTube records and topped charts like Billboard and iTunes for weeks. Not to be outdone, the b-side single ‘Money’ has been giving the title track, ‘Lalisa’ equal competition. It went viral on social media as even non-K-pop fans have been using it to make TikToks. It still continues to chart on Billboard and other international charts and now it has also made two YouTube records.

Lisa makes YouTube records with ‘Money’ reaching 300M views
While we only got a music video for ‘Lalisa’, the Blackpink member gifted fans with a performance video of ‘Money’. And on November 29, the performance video of ‘Money’ reached 300 million views on YouTube. It closely follows the ‘Lalisa’ music video which is currently at 356 million YouTube views and some fans think that it could even be left behind as ‘Money’ continues to gain popularity. With this, Lisa has become the first and only K-pop female idol to have two videos with over 300 million views each.
‘Money’ has also become the fastest choreography video of a K-pop act to reach 300 million in 66 days. The record was previously held by Blackpink with the ‘How You Like That’ performance video crossing 300 million YouTube views in 77 days. On top of it, the ‘Money’ performance video was the most viewed video by a K-pop act on its 66th day with over 3 million views in the last 24 hours.
Blackpink is the most subscribed YouTube artist
At the same time, Lisa also became the first K-pop act and first Korean celebrity to cross 68 million Instagram followers and is the most followed in these two criteria on the platform. We also have her group, Blackpink extending their record of the most subscribed YouTube artist. They previously beat Justin Bieber’s channel with 65.2 million subscribers. And on November 29, the K-pop girl group became the first artist to cross 70 million subscribers. This feat is quite impressive since they launched their channel only over five years ago and just have 395 videos.
