Recently, YG Entertainment officially confirmed that BLACKPINK has become the artist owning the 4th most subscribed Youtube channel in the world. Specifically, at around 9:00 am KST on August 16, BLACKPINK’s Youtube channel has surpassed 44 million subscribers, surpassing two following artists: Eminem and Ariana Grande.
Currently, many netizens predict that BLACKPINK has a very high chance of entering Top 3, which means surpassing the number of subscribers of male singer Ed Sheeran. The owner of the hit ‘Shape of You’ is currently having about 45.2 million subscribers on Youtube, and with the rapid growth of the YG girl group, it is only sooner or later for them to defeat this number. Especially when on August 28th, BLACKPINK will once again ‘rock’ the music industry with a new single with Selena Gomez before releasing their 1st full album in October.
