South Korean superstar quartet BLACKPINK are back with their new single “How You Like That”, released through YG Entertainment/Interscope Records.

Its release arrives with an accompanying video, which you can check out below.
In addition, the group will make their Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon performance debut tonight, June 26.
Debuting in 2016 with “SQUARE ONE,” BLACKPINK captivated the public and became one of the largest global pop groups. With the release of their mini-albums, SQUARE UP and Kill This Love, BLACKPINK grew to be global artists and proved their popularity by successfully completing their world tour and being the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella, the largest music festival in the U.S.
“How You Like That” comes ahead of BLACKPINK’s sophomore full-length, currently slated for release later this year, and follows the record-breaking South Korean act’s single “Kill This Love”, the title track off their chart-topping 2019 mini-LP. Aside from charting in 27 countries around the globe – including Russia, Japan and Argentina – the song became the highest-charting single by a South Korean female group in both the US and the UK.
BLACKPINK have also been making headlines lately for their collaboration with Lady Gaga, “Sour Candy”. The single, off Gaga’s best-selling sixth studio album, Chromatica, smashed multiple records around the globe. On May 28 – its first day of release – the single landed at No. 6 on the global Spotify chart with over 3.67 million streams, giving BLACKPINK the biggest debut for a song by a girl group in Spotify history. On the same day, the song also reached No.1 in 52 countries on iTunes, marking another milestone for the K-pop group. On YouTube, the audio-only video for ‘Sour Candy’ garnered 21.8 million views in its first 24 hours, breaking the record for the biggest debut for an all-female collaboration on the video platform.
