Korean girl group Black­pink’s lav­ish mu­sic video “How You

Like That” has set a record for the big­gest mu­sic video pre­miere on YouTube. The record was pre­vi­ously held by boy band BTS.

A to­tal of 1.65 mil­lion fans gath­ered to watch the new song.

The song is also their first in a year. It is a sin­gle that will be in­volved in their first full-length stu­dio al­bum which is ex­pected to be re­leased in Septem­ber.

The mu­sic video shows Rose, Lisa, Jen­nie and Jisoo in a va­ri­ety of set­tings, with a song that in­fuses hip-hop with a hint of Ara­bic mu­sic.

The chore­og­ra­phy is also up­beat as they dance along with their backup dancers.

The band re­ceived praise for their out­fits, with Jimmy Fal­lon up­load­ing a live per­for­mance of the song and say­ing: “They are un­be­liev­able. Phe­nom­e­non is not even the word, you have to in­vent a new word for this group.”

@Yullde­vantofe com­mented on Lisa’s rap­ping: “Lisa al­ways de­liv­ers her rap with the flow, at­ti­tude, skill and vibe all at once. A com­plete pack­age that all fe­male rap­pers wish to have.”
