YG Entertainment – the company under which Blackpink is signed, on July 19th announced via Twitter that Lisa’s hit solo B-side, “Money”, just crossed over 500 million streams on Spotify. This makes “Money” the fastest song by a K-pop soloist ever to reach the milestone.

“MONEY” is also now the fastest song by any female K-pop act to hit the 500 million mark on Spotify, a record previously set by none other than BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That” last year.
