The Guinness World Records announced on their website on April 9 (local time) that Rosé's 'On the Ground' music video has been recognized as "the most watched YouTube video of a K-Pop solo artist in its first 24 hours."
The MV for 'On the Ground' recorded 41.6 million views on YouTube on the first day of its release. Guinness also noted that this record had been held for 8 years by PSY's 'Gangnam Style' (36 million views).
In addition, Rosé was confirmed to be the first artist to reach the top of the U.S. Billboard Global 200 as both a soloist and idol group member .
'On the Ground' topped the U.S. Billboard Global on March 27, which ranks based on streaming and music sales collected from more than 200 regions around the world.
As a result, Rosé now has the second No.1 song on the Billboard Global 200, following BLACKPINK's first full-length album title track 'Lovesick Girls', which was released in October last year.
"Congratulations on Rosé's acquisition of the Guinness title," Guinness World Records said, adding meaning as this is "the beginning of her career as a solo artist."
