BLACKPINK’s ‘How You Like That’ hits 1 billion Spotify streams

South Korean group BLACKPINK broke another record when its song How You Like That reached 1 billion streams on Spotify Tuesday, making them the first K-pop girl group to hit this milestone. 

This record makes BLACKPINK the third female band, just after Fifth Harmony and Spice Girls, to reach this milestone with a single song, The Korea Herald reported. The K-pop group reached 1 billion streams just after three years and eight months.

The group, which features members Jisoo, Rosé, Lisa and Jennie, also broke a Guinness World Record as it became the most-streamed female band on Spotify last year with 12.6 billion streams across the platform.

“It’s very surprising to us,” said Jennie to Grammy.com in 2020, Billboard reported. “All the records are the results of our fans, BLINKs, and their unconditional support. Every day we try to acknowledge how grateful we are, but more than the pressure, we are ready to give them back as much as they gave us. It just gives us more motivation to go further than we ever dreamed of.”

Released in June 2020, the song How You Like That was the first pre-release single from the group’s debut studio album, titled The Album, according to Times Now. It was written and produced by Teddy Park, Danny Chung, R. Tee and 24. 

After released, the song reached No. 1 on the Top Songs chart on iTunes in 64 regions in addition to ranking No. 33 on Billboard’s Hot 100, The Korea Herald said. The song is available to stream on Spotify’s Billion Streams Club playlist.

The music video for the song, HT Tech noted, broke YouTube’s 24-hour viewing record as it amassed 82.5 million views after just a day since its release.
