K-pop boy group GOT7 has made an impressive milestone on Saturday (November 21) on YouTube. With the music video for their new single 'You Calling My Name', the group has surpassed 100 million views on the platform.
What is more notable is that their achievement has made GOT7 break their own personal record as their fastest music video to reach 100 million views, a record previously tethered to 'Never Ever', which featured on their 2017 extended play 'Flight Log: Arrival'. According to Soompi, 'You Calling My Name' hit the 100-million-view milestone just before 5.30 am KST on Sunday, November 22/3.30 pm on November 21, and taking into consideration that the video premiered in 2019 on November 4 at 6 pm KST/400 am EST. That means, it took just over a year, 17 days and 11 hours to reach the mark.
Additionally, 'You Calling My Name' is the group's seventh music video to get 100 million views on YouTube. Others include 'Just Right', 'If You Do', 'Never Ever', 'A', 'Lullaby' and 'Hard Carry'. Fans on Twitter have been quick to share their support. "Deserved omg this is really my fav song," said a fan while another wrote, "Because it’s their best title track Deserved."
