Music video of DDU-DU DDU-DU exceeded 200 million views as of July 19. YG Entertainment celebrated this by uploading a congratulatory image via its official blog.
With this, BLACKPINK once again added another historic page to K-pop's history. It only took 33 days for DDU-DU DDU-DU's MV to reach 200 million views, after its release on June 15. This is a grand record that has brought forward BLACKPINK's previous record by 11 days.
