BLACKPINK has officially become the most-subscribed musical act in YouTube history, surpassing Canadian singer Justin Bieber!
In September 2020, BLACKPINK claimed the record for the artist with the second most subscribers on YouTube after crossing 48.8 million subscribers. The quartet surpassed DJ Marshmello with 48.7 million subscribers at that time.
The quartet obtained this feat of the second most-subscribed artist on YouTube with only a few days left until the official release of their first studio album, "THE ALBUM."
BLACKPINK Officially Becomes the No. 1 Most-Subscribed Musical Act in YouTube History
In April of this year, BLACKPINK's YouTube channel subscribers exceeded the 60 million mark. This makes them only within a spitting dance of Justin Bieber, who is the most-followed artist with 62.4 million subscribers.
In five months, BLACKPINK eventually owned the title of the No. 1 most-subscribed musical act on YouTube in history.
On Sept. 10, Chart Data announced that BLACKPINK's YouTube subscribers count has passed 65.1 million as of this day.
In August 2020, after the release of "How You Like That," the YG girl group beat Eminem to become the fourth most-subscribed musical act on YouTube.
