BLACKPINK proved once again why they are called the biggest girl group globally, as their song Shut Down recently surpassed 200 million streams on music streaming application Spotify.
Not only did the song gain 200 million streams, but it also became the second fastest song of 2022 by a K-pop group to achieve this milestone, falling behind the group's other song Pink Venom.
Shut Down took 68 days, while the latter did it in just 42 days.
The K-pop girl powerhouse now has a total of 16 songs that have achieved the record and BLINKS could not be any more happier. Calling them "Queens," they celebrated the achievement on Twitter.
One fan even quoted the lyrics of their recent record-breaking song that perfectly asserts their influence on the global music charts.
Hit K-pop girl group BLACKPINK has an endless list of YouTube records

But it's not just the quartet's most recent releases that are breaking records. On November 25, 2022, their 2019 video for Kill This Love reached 1.7 billion views on YouTube, joining PSY's Gangnam Style and their own DDU-DU DDU-DU as the only K-pop videos to do so.
This made BLACKPINK the first Korean artists to achieve the feat with more than one music video, becoming an addition to the hit group's ever-increasing list of YouTube records.
