SEOUL, Aug. 9 (Yonhap) -- The music video for BLACKPINK's hit song "How You Like That" topped the milestone of 400 million YouTube views Sunday.

The music video surpassed the threshold only 43 days after its release on June 26.

The feat makes it the fastest to reach the mark among all K-pop music videos on YouTube. The previous record was by "Kill This Love," another hit by the four-member act, which took 63 days to garner the view total.

"How You Like That" is the first of two pre-release singles that will become part of BLACKPINK's first studio album, coming out on Oct. 2.

The second single will be rolled out on Aug. 28, the group's management agency YG Entertainment said.

Upon its release, "How You Like That" instantly stormed to the No. 1 spot on Apple's singles charts in 60 countries and territories.

The song also ranked second on Spotify's Global Top 50 singles chart.

BLACKPINK debuted in 2016, topping multiple music charts with the hip-hop tracks "Whistle" and "Boombayah."

"Boombayah" is nearing 1 billion views on YouTube, with "Whistle" topping 500 million views.
