Blackpink has added six more Guinness World Records to its repertoire, according to the girl group’s agency YG Entertainment on Friday.
Blackpink has been listed as the first K-pop girl group to simultaneously top the albums charts in both the United States and United Kingdom with its second full-length album “Born Pink” which dropped in September 2022.
The girl group is also listed as the first winner of the Best Metaverse Performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, which it won last year for its performance of “Ready For Love” in the video game PUBG Mobile.
Member Lisa, who made her solo debut with single “Lalisa” in September 2021, holds three world records in her own right. She is first solo K-pop artist to win at both the MTV Video Music Awards (Best K-pop Video) and the MTV Europe Music Awards, and is also the K-pop artist with the most Instagram followers — 86.3 million as of Jan. 19.
Blackpink is also the most-subscribed-to band on YouTube.
The girl group formerly held the record for most-viewed video on YouTube within 24 hours with “How You Like That” (2020), before BTS broke the record with “Dynamite” (2020)
