BlackPink is really at it again! The women’s hit song “DDU-DU DDU-DU” has finally hit 800 million views on YouTube! Being released in June of last year, the MV has made history in less than a year!
The track is not the first MV for a KPop group to reach 800 million views. It should also be noted that it is also the fasted video to do this, meaning any future contenders (we’re looking at you BTS) will have to do it a lesser amount of time to trump it.
