After BTS, BLACKPINK Is The Second EVER Kpop Group To Receive The Diamond Youtube Button

YouTube is known for handing out trophies to creators as they pass certain subscriber count.

A creator receives the Silver Play Button if they reach the 100,000 subscribers. A Gold Play Button is received after the creator reaches 1 million subscribers while the Diamond Play Button is given to creators after they surpass the 10 million subscribers.

BTS and BLACKPINK have had a good 2018; they both broke various records with their most recent releases. BTS’s “Fake Love” became one of the most viewed music videos in the first 24 hours, the 4th most viewed in the first 24 hours of YouTube history to be exact.

While BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU DDU-DU” became the most viewed music video on YouTube in the first 24 hours in 2018, its also the second most viewed music video in the first 24 hours of its release in all of YouTube history.

“DDU-DU DDU-DU” also recently surpassed the 300 million views becoming the fastest Kpop MV to reach that amazing milestone.

BTS had previously shown off their diamond play button and fans have been waiting for BLACKPINK to do the same.

On August 23, BLACKPINK posted three sweet photos to their official instagram account thanking fans for the button in the English language for their fans.

BLACKPINK is the only Kpop (standalone) girl group YouTube video to have surpassed the 10 million subscriber mark.
