The special edition of BlackPink’s first regular album title ‘How You Like That’ was officially released today (17th).
The charm of black pink is captured in three themes: monotone, dark mood, and colorful visuals. On the CD, there were two tracks of ‘How You Like That’ and an instrument version that had not been released. Not only that, but the 132P photobook, random polaroids, random postcards, and ground posters have been enhanced to increase the value of fans’ collection.
‘How You Like That’ is a hip-hop song featuring BlackPink’s unique personality and charismatic sound. TEDDY and Danny Chung, YG’s strongest producers, wrote and composed TEDDY, R.Tee, and 24.
As soon as the sound source was released on June 26, the song ranked No. 1 in the charts of six major sound source sites in Korea, including Melon. Until today, the 22nd, it continues to be a popular long run, keeping the top of the Melon site 24Hits chart.
K-Pop’s status has been enhanced by gaining an explosive response abroad. ‘How You Like That’ recorded the highest number among K-pop girl groups of all time, sweeping the number one position in 64 countries of the iTunes Song Chart, including the United States.
In addition, it ranked first in the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and 20 in the UK Official Singles Chart, respectively, breaking the top rankings of the K-pop girl group and succeeded in charting for two consecutive weeks. It won the top spot in Japan’s largest music site, Line Music, China’s largest music site, QQ Music, and the Chinese music platform Tencent’s real-time music chart.
Music videos are also writing amazing records every day. The ‘How You Like That’ music video recorded 86.3 million views on the first day of public release, and was named on Guinness World Records in all five categories, including ‘The Most Viewed YouTube Videos in 24 Hours’. Since then, about 100 million views in 32 hours, 200 million views in 7 days, and 300 million views in front of this day, it is breaking the record of the shortest time ever in YouTube music video.
