According to YG Entertainment on February 13, the music video for Blackpink’s ‘Ice Cream’ surpassed 700 million views on YouTube at 4:08 am on the same day. It has been about 1 year and 5 months since it was released in August 2020.

Prior to ‘Ice Cream‘, ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU‘ (1.8 billion views), ‘Kill This Love‘ (1.5 billion views), ‘Boombayah’ (1.3 billion views), ‘As if it were your last‘ (1.1 billion views), The music video and performance video for ‘How You Like That‘ (1 billion views), and Jennie’s solo songs ‘SOLO‘, ‘Whistle‘ and ‘Playing with Fire‘ music videos reached 700 million views.
‘Ice Cream’ was a cute and refreshing concept that Blackpink tried for the first time, and it drew attention because it was a pop genre song with a simple rhythm and light sound. Through this song, Blackpink was evaluated to have shown positive synergy with Selena Gomez, expanding a more diverse global fandom and musical spectrum.
The song topped the iTunes World Wide Chart immediately after its release and then climbed to number 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100, renewing its own top ranking for K-pop girl groups, and succeeded in charting for 8 weeks in a row.
In addition, BLACKPINK’s first full-length album ‘THE ALBUM’, which contained this song, ranked second on both the US Billboard 200 and the UK Official Album Chart, replacing the top ranking of K-pop girl groups.
On the other hand, Blackpink has a total of 32 videos with billions of views on YouTube. The number of official channel subscribers is now over 72.1 million. Blackpink becomes the most subscribe artist around the world.
