Stray Kids are continuing to impact the globe with a successful year in 2020. Around 8.20 pm EST on Thursday, December 3, the K-pop group's new music video 'Back Door' reached 100 million views on YouTube. Having premiered on September 14 at 4 am EST, the 'Back Door' MV achieved the impressive milestone swiftly in just about two months. More specifically, two months, 18 days, and 16 hours.

The video features Stray Kids firing up embers and stomping out powerful dance moves while donning several outfits to 'Back Door' which features a funky bassline and an anthemic, brassed-up chorus. 'Back Door' featured as the lead single for the group's repackaged edition ('In Life') of their first Korean-language album, 'Go Live'. The original edition also featured the hit single 'God's Menu'.

'Back Door' was recently chosen as one of TIME's '10 Best Songs of 2020', entering at No. 8. On this year's 'The 10 Best Songs of 2020', 'Back Door' was positioned among several big names popular in the US, such as Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion (for their famous collab 'WAP'), Bad Bunny ('Yo Perreo Sola Remix'), Bree Runway ('Little Nokia'), Mac Miller ('Good News') and more.

Fans on Twitter have been pouring out comments on the platform with their excitement over the new milestone. "Oh the self produced group who produced and write their own song? The group who didn't have fixed position? That boy group who for the 1st time in the history mentioned by TIMES as one of the best song in 2020? Is that you? @Stray_Kids," says a fan while another writes, "@Stray_Kids are the only 4th gen bg to have 3 100M music videos and the only bg this year other than bts!! Skz next big thing wbk."

Another fan is predicting the same achievement for the music video 'My Pace', saying, "YEA YEA YEA, THE NEXT ONE'S GONNA BE MY PACE," in all caps and with fire emojis. The music video currently has 93 million views on YouTube.



 

 

Over on YouTube, fans have also noted the 'Back Door' milestone with their excited comments. One fan says, "Skz has achieved many things this year. I hope our fandom becomes bigger. I hope y'all know that this is not the end. We still have a lot of mvs to s+r34m so don't give up yet. There's still my pace, hellevator, double knot and a lot more!"

As mentioned by one of the above fans, 'Back Door' is Stray Kids’s third music video to surpass 100 million views. It follows after the milestone for 'MIROH' and 'God’s Menu' - the latter video currently holding the group’s record as the fastest to hit 100 million views at two months and 10 days.
