It’s been a while since Blackpink made a comeback; but the members are still making headlines on a regular basis for their accomplishments.

As of November 12, the music video for How You Like That had surpassed one billion views on YouTube. This makes it the fastest K-pop girl group music video to reach this milestone. Since the music video for Blackpink’s 2018 single ‘Ddu-Du Ddu-Du’ broke this record, the group has extended their own.
