Next month, BLACKPINK will share the second single from their debut album. As the group revealed last week, the single will include a surprise feature.

Released on June 26th, “How You Like That” debuted at #33 on the Billboard Hot 100, making BLACKPINK the K-pop act with the second-highest number of Hot 100 entries in chart history. The song also shot to #1 on the iTunes charts in the U.S. and 66 other countries (spending four consecutive days at #1 worldwide), and peaked at #2 on Spotify’s Global Top 50 (reaching the #8 spot in the U.S.).

Meanwhile, the mind-blowing visual for “How You Like That” became the fastest video in YouTube history to cross 10 million likes, as well as the fastest video to amass 150 million views. It also shattered the YouTube record for most views within the first 24 hours (86.3 million), and set an all-time record for the biggest YouTube premiere (with over 1.6 million peak concurrent viewers).
