Blackpink continues to reign supreme on YouTube as the only artist to surpass 80 million subscribers

Looks like September will also be Blackpink month! From cracking the UK singles charts to setting records on the YouTube music and video charts, the girl group has started September off with a bang. And now, with their new YouTube achievement, they’ve made history.

On September 5 KST, Blackpink surpassed 80 million subscribers on their official YouTube channel, making them the first and only artist to reach the milestone.

The girl group is the first artist, not just the first K-pop group, to achieve this feat. Having reached 80 million subscribers in just over six years and three months, the K-pop girl group has made YouTube history. Their YouTube channel was first launched on June 29, 2016.
