BLACKPINK as done it again——or rather their fans have. According to Guinness World Records, the massively popular K-pop girl group became the most-streamed female band on Spotify. With 8.8 billion streams, BLACKPINK reached the new high-water mark beating out previous titleholders Little Mix, a British-based group. Some of BLACKPINK’s most popular tracks include “How You Like That,” “Kill This Love” and “DDU-DU DDU-DU.” Rosé, Jennie, Lisa and Jisoo — the members of the group — reached the milestone as K-pop, short for Korean popular music, has continued over the past decade to amass a significant following around the world. K-pop emerged in the mid- to late-1990s, spurred in part by a newfound focus on cultural exportation in South Korea — with BLACKPINK and high-profile acts like BTS and EXO becoming extremely popular in the United States and online. BLACKPINK is no stranger to record-breaking popularity. They also holds the record for the first female K-pop group to reach No.1 on the U.K. albums chart and the first female K-pop group to reach No. 1 on the U.S. albums chart. And they are not done yet. With such a large worldwide fan base, the four young women from South Korea will be making musical history for many years.

    I’ m not really into Spotify, but I do like BLACKPINK and it’s not surprising that they broke the record. Everyone I know likes them and they are going to be around a lot longer.
