BLACKPINK Achieves Impressive Record With Views In First 24 Hours For “Pink Venom” MV
BLACKPINK’s latest music video racked up a potentially record-breaking number of views within the first 24 hours of its release!
On August 19 at 1 p.m. KST, BLACKPINK made their long-awaited return with their new pre-release single “Pink Venom.”
24 hours later, on August 20 at 1 p.m. KST, BLACKPINK’s music video for “Pink Venom” had already amassed a total of approximately 86,228,516 views on YouTube.
Although YouTube has not yet confirmed the music video’s official 24-hour view count, it appears that “Pink Venom” may have set a new record for the highest number of views achieved by any music video released in 2022 in its first 24 hours.
Additionally, because YouTube’s official view count is often different from view counts that are measured in real time, “Pink Venom” is also still in the running to break BLACKPINK’s own record for the highest number of views ever achieved by a female artist’s music video in its first 24 hours. The current record, set by BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That” back in 2020, is 86.3 million views.
YouTube’s official 24-hour view count for “Pink Venom” will be announced at a later date.
In the meantime, congratulations to BLACKPINK!
