The Difference Between BTS And BLACKPINK’s US Presence Explained By Analyst

BTS BLACKPINK

Twitter / Fuse TV

An analyst from Hana Global Investment recently laid out some nice information that could prove useful for YG Entertainment in securing BLACKPINK‘s current market presence even stronger.

While the YG Entertainment girl group has beaten BTS‘s record of accumulating 150 million views on YouTube in the fastest time, they still have a few obstacles to overcome if they hope to become the first K-Pop girl group to make an impact on the world’s music market in a similar way that BTS did. BLACKPINK was able to reach 150 million views on YouTube with their latest single ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ in twenty-one days, beating BTS’s record of accomplishing it within twenty-four days.

The analyst pointed out that while BLACKPINK was able to enter Billboard’s radar with their overwhelming amount of views on YouTube, they were unable to maintain their position on US charts as well as BTS as Billboard’s Hot 100 policy changed since the beginning of March this year.

The criteria for chart positions on the Hot 100 charts take paid advertisement free subscriptions of all streaming platforms including YouTube and Spotify. This means that BTS clearly has an advantage since a large portion of ARMY are YouTube Red premium users, ultimately having an impact on BTS’s position on the charts.

BLACKPINK have been presented a big opportunity but must release more contents and releases in the upcoming future if they wish to secure their presence in premium streaming platforms, primarily users in North and South America.

Why the hell are they comparing bts with rookies. What do they know about BTS and armys hardwork .Just going through reports and news so wanna be known… Idols are those who fans will accept in every way, fans feel secure with , not with views… So people comparing bp with BTS dont even think about it…

Why are ya’ll comparing BTS who have been around for 7 years and BlackPink who debuted 3 years ago? Of course BTS will be more influential, they’ve been around for longer and thus have a bigger fan base, of course they’re gonna sell out faster… BlackPink achieved in 2 years what BTS did in 5, and that’s all thanks to social media and even thanks to BTS themselves, who were the pioneers in expanding the K-Pop industry and pehnomenon globally. Both BP and especially BTS are proof that hard work pays off. So ya’ll need to chill.

bts only started to blow up in 2016… thats just three years ago vs bp who blew up in korea from the beginning of their career. lets acknowledge how the reason why bp has accomlished anything close to bts is because they came from the big3. bp was born with a sliver spoon in theirs mouths, bts wasnt

I think it’s unfair of yg to hold blackpink concert and ask people to pay such huge amount of money to watch blackpink perform covers of other artists.

Personally BTS is way better as their contribution and impact to the world is not just in music but on a whole different level. They are a group that everyone is proud of. Always have very positive and meaningful content, they experiment with different style of music, trying different genres etc and very creative.

of course BTS is still higher. they have a bigger fanbase worldwide thats why. I’m a kpop fan, and so that doesn’t give me the right to hate on other groups, but personally i lke BTS more because of their huge impact and contribution to the music industry. but still no shade on blackpink though. BTS were able to sell ot 5 stadiums in less than one day, while BP couldn’t sell out an arena in 2 months, and the tickets are still available. BP is still a mile away compared to the popularity between BTS. BTS already left a… Read more »
