    The girl group has made an amazing comeback this year with its song ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’, which has already hit several music industry records.

    The K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, which debuted only two years ago with YG Entertaiment, has made history, hitting the Billboard Hot 100, the music industry's go-to chart of the most-popular pop music songs being played in the US, which is published every week by Billboard magazine. The band debuted at No.55 (on the chart dated June 30). The only female K-pop group appeared on the chart was Wonder Girls with 'Nobody' in 2009 at No.76.

    'DDU-DU DDU-DU' is the group's sixth video after 'Boombayah', 'Whistle', 'Playing with fire', 'As if it's your last' and Stay' which reached 100mln views.
