BLACKPINK stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this weekend for a virtual performance of their new single ‘How You Like That’.
Host Jimmy Fallon called the K-pop four-piece “unbelievable” during the talk show on Friday night (June 26), adding that “phenomenon isn’t even the word” to describe them. “You need to invent a new word for this group,” he said.
‘How You Like That’ is BLACKPINK’s first new music since their Lady Gaga collaboration, ‘Sour Candy’.

Prior to the release of the Lady Gaga collaboration and their new single, BLACKPINK recently became the first K-pop band to score a billion YouTube views for a single song.
The band hit the milestone with their music video for ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’, which hit YouTube last June.
BLACKPINK’s last record came in the form of 2019’s five-track EP ‘Kill This Love’. It’s not clear yet whether ‘How You Like That’ will appear on a forthcoming album or project of any kind.
Reviewing ‘Kill This Love’, NME’S Rhian Daly wrote: “Their latest release is not a debut LP, as rumours suggested earlier this year, but a continuation of their tradition of giving piecemeal offerings.
“‘Kill This Love’ marks their third EP following 2016’s ‘Square Two’ and last year’s ‘Square Up’, and showcases a band who are certainly talented but perhaps not quite ready for the next upward arc in the ride they’re currently on.”
