BLACKPINK Surpasses Eminem To Become Artist With 4th Most Subscribers On YouTube
BLACKPINK is now officially the fourth most-subscribed artist on YouTube!
On August 17, YG Entertainment announced that as of 9 a.m. KST on August 16, BLACKPINK had surpassed 44 million subscribers on their official YouTube channel. With this latest figure, the group has now surged past Eminem (who has over 43.9 million subscribers as of now) to be fourth in line after Justin Bieber, DJ Marshmello, and Ed Sheeran. BLACKPINK is already the K-pop artist with the most subscribers on YouTube, and they also recently became the most-subscribed female artist on the platform.
The number of YouTube subscribers is one of the most objective indicators of overseas popularity and recognition. BLACKPINK has achieved this in four years since their debut in Korea and about a year and a half after entering the U.S.
BLACKPINK’s unrivaled streak on YouTube continues to be impressive, and they have been gaining 100,000 subscribers a day since the release of their latest hit song “How You Like That.”
The group is set to collaborate with Selena Gomez for their upcoming new single, which will be released on August 28.
