Jennie set a new record in the female Kpop solo artist segment. However, her music video does not have as many views as BLACKPINK’s dance performance video ‘How You Like That,’ which was published in July 2020.
On August 9, the BLACKPINK’s fandom received two pieces of good news in a row. The first news is Jennie’s ‘SOLO’ MV hitting 700 million views on Youtube. The second news is that BLACKPINK’s Dance Performance Video “How You Like That” has also reached 800 million views on this platform.
‘SOLO’ was released on November 12, 2018, and took two years, 8 months, and 27 days to reach 700 million views. This is the first MV of a female K-pop solo artist to surpass this milestone. However, in terms of speed and number of views, ‘SOLO’ has lost to the ‘How You Like That’ dance performance video, although the level of investment in Jennie’s solo product is much higher.
‘How You Like That’ Dance Performance reached 800 million views in just 1 year, 1 month, and 4 days, which is 100 million views higher than Jennie’s ‘SOLO’ MV. Notably, this is the first and only dance video in history to reach this milestone.
The new achievement shows that BLACKPINK is really the “YouTube queen”; they can gain a desirable number of views with just a dance video. Moreover, this Dance Performance even surpasses Jennie’s heavily invested solo MV.
With such a rapid growth rate, the day when the Dance Performance version of How You Like That surpasses one billion views is not far off. Jennie, on the other hand, does not have to be sad because MV SOLO has assisted her in setting a record that no female Kpop soloist has ever achieved!
