YG Entertainment's newest girl group BLACKPINK is slaying it big time!

Just eight months after making their official debut in August last year, BLACKPINK now has three music videos which crossed the 100 million mark on YouTube. The four-member act first reached the milestone with "BOOMBAYAH" earlier this year.

"We'll continue to bring you greater performances and music videos, so please keep watching over us and loving us," the members wrote on Instagram.

In fact, Soompi cited BLACKPINK's "BOOMBAYAH" and "WHISTLE" placed 6th and 8th, respectively, on YouTube's "Top 10 Most-Watched K-pop Music Videos" for their year-end countdown.

Along with the rookie girl group were renowned artists, including Psy ("Daddy"), TWICE ("Cheer Up"), BTS ("Fire," "Blood Sweat and Tears" and "Save Me") and EXO ("Monster" and "Lotto").

BLACKPINK recently added another record under their belt with "Playing with Fire" which now has over 101,000,000 views. Shortly after their second milestone, BLACKPINK surpassed the six-digit figures with "WHISTLE" on Saturday as per Allkpop.

The latest achievement came eight months after the debut single was uploaded on YouTube. BLACKPINK becomes the first K-pop group to surpass 100 million views for three of their MVs less than a year after they were introduced.

Right now, the rising girl group is reportedly eyeing for a spring comeback as per a YG affiliate. Not only that, BLACKPINK is also set to perform at university festivals starting May. This will mark their first outdoor show since making their debut last year.

Aside from that, the upcoming university festival performances are to be part of their comeback promotions. Although the schedule for BLACKPINK's highly anticipated return is still unconfirmed, fans of the YG girl group are all set to hear their new music.

"We need more songs. They only have one song more than K.A.R.D and they haven't even debuted yet. They should also sing "Stay" live more often," a fan expressed.

Who's excited for the return of BLACKPINK?
