Blackpink member Rosé’s solo career is soaring sky high as she smashes records for her debut single On the Ground. The New Zealand-born, Australia-raised Korean idol released her music video on March 12, and broke the Guinness World Record for most video views in 24 hours.

She gained 41.6 million views in a single day, beating fellow Korean artist PSY’s Gangnam Style from 2012, which held the previous record at 36 million views.

The song made it to No. 1 on both the Global Billboard 200 and Billboard Global Excl. US charts on March 27. Alongside her bandmates Jisoo, Jennie and Lisa, she previously topped the Billboard Global Excl. US chart with Lovesick Girls last year.

This makes Rosé the first artist to reach the top of charts as a solo artist and a group act, as certified by Guinness World Records.

Her spectacular success comes as no surprise, because Blackpink are already accustomed to breaking records.

They currently hold records for most viewers for the premiere of a video on YouTube and the most viewers for the premiere of a music video on YouTube with How You Like That.

2020 was officially The Year of Blackpink – can anything stop them?

They previously had the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours and the most viewed music video in 24 hours too, but BTS changed that with their smash hit Dynamite.

Rosé is absolutely killing it, and we can’t wait to see what other records she’ll set with the rest of her solo album, R.
