In a development that should surprise no one, BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom” made a major opening-day splash on YouTube.

According to official data from the platform, the music video amassed 90.4 million views during its first twenty-four hours. The count ranks as a new high mark for BLACKPINK, surpassing the 86.3 million achieved by the group’s “How You Like That.”

As previously reported by Headline Planet, “Pink Venom” also attracted massive early interest on YouTube and iTunes. It is additionally attracting pre-impact airplay at mainstream US radio.
