BLACKPINK still continues to break new records and this time, Jennie’s solo project broke another record on Spotify!
The K-pop girl group’s label, YG Entertainment officially announced that BLACKPINK’s Jennie’s solo debut track appropriately title SOLO had surpassed 240.8 million streams on Spotify, making it the most-streamed song by any Korean soloist on the music platform.
The previous record for most-streamed song by a Korean soloist was held by PSY’s 2012 smash hit Gangnam Style, which has racked up over 240.6 million streams on Spotify.
SOLO already made Spotify history once earlier this year, when it became the first song by a Korean female soloist to surpass 200 million streams on the platform back in April. Congratulations to Jennie on this incredible achievement! But she couldn’t have done it alone as we have BLINKs to thank for supporting ad streaming the track!
Jennie is the first of the BLACKPINK members to release a solo project and YG Entertainment promised that the other members will soon follow with the next member being Rosé. We’ve heard what appears to be a snippet of Rosé’s solo single in their Netflix documentary, BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky.
The Netflix documentary gives an in-depth behind the scenes look at BLACKPINK’s personalities, work ethics, and personal stories shared by the members; Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé and Lisa.
The documentary was released just under 2 weeks after the release of Blackpink’s first studio album The Album which has scored a historic debut at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making it the biggest chart debut by an all-female group in over a decade and the highest first-week sales for a K-pop group’s debut album in history.
Even before it was released, The Album has also reached 340,000 units in pre-orders from the United States and Europe. That’s really impressive honestly.
