Jennie of Blackpink: First Korean soloist with one billion streams


Jennie from Blackpink has amassed one billion Spotify plays, which is a first for a female K-pop artist.

Despite the fact that the 27-year-old hasn’t released any solo albums, Allkpop noted this.

With just three songs, Jennie was able to reach 500 million streams in a single year, according to the portal.

Fans are thrilled for her now that she has achieved this goal and are anticipating her solo album.

After months of rumor, Jennie and her band Blackpink had recently extended their contract.

Except for streams. Along with her bandmate Lisa, Jennie is now one of only two Korean female artists to reach the milestone of 25,574,936 monthly listeners.

This achievement, added the portal, highlights the duo’s individual popularity and influence, which goes beyond their collective success in Blackpink.

Meanwhile, Forbes reported that Jennie’s solo smash One of the Girls ranks the most-consumed tracks in the US categorised as R&B.

Jennie’s track is now the first tune that credits a South Korean artist to break into the top 10 on the Hot R&B Songs chart.
