BLACKPINK’s “Ice Cream” has drawn attention as a song with world-renowned pop star Selena Gomez. It is a cute and refreshing concept that BLACKPINK tried for the first time in four years since its debut, and it is a pop genre song with simple rhythm and cheerful sound, which is loved by global music fans.
In fact, the song ranked 13th on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart at the time of its release, breaking the K-pop girl group’s highest ranking. iTunes World Wide Chart No. 1 was the governor of course, and proved its global influence by making it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks.
In addition, it hit the global market by topping major overseas music sites, including the Spotify Global Top 40 chart, the U.S. Top 50 chart, and the UK Official Single Top 40 chart. It was achieved only with music and music videos, without much activity.
BLACKPINK’s new record is expected to continue. This is because BLACKPINK’s influence on YouTube, one of the leading players in the global music market, is becoming stronger.
On YouTube, Black Pink has a total of 25 billion views. Black Pink’s YouTube channel subscribers have also increased steadily, with more than 57.3 million subscribers now. Justin Bieber, the world’s No. 1 female artist and the No. 1 overall, is rapidly catching up with the number of subscribers (60.9 million).
