BLACKPINK’s Jennie’s ‘Solo’ Music Video Reaches 1 Billion YouTube Views

Jennie’s first solo single outside of BLACKPINK, fittingly titled “Solo,” has officially hit one billion YouTube views.

Within five hours of its release on YouTube back in 2018, the video had surpassed four million views. “This is not a touching love story/ No romance, no sincerity/ I’m sorry, but I’m not sorry/ From today on I’m a shining solo,” she sings on the dance-ready track.

As the title suggests, “Solo” is Jennie’s first solo single outside of BLACKPINK. “There was definitely some pressure when I was starting because I was representing myself and also BLACKPINK for the very first time,” she told Billboard in 2018 of the track, which she said is about “being true to yourself and being confident. I hope that listeners can embrace the message and enjoy the song as much as I did.”

She also shared what she likes to do in her alone time, noting, “I like to just stay at home with my family, I eat something nice,” she says. “Strawberry are in season in Korea, [so] they’re my go-to everyday. Just relax, just rest from everything.”

Upon its release, “Solo” topped Billboard‘s World Digital Song Sales chart. The star became the second solo female K-pop act, and first as the lead artist, to top the chart after CL.
