BLACKPINK is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment. The quartet consists of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ, and LISA. BLACKPINK captured the hearts of audiences from the moment they released their debut single SQUARE ONE in August 2016. Since then, they have turned every release, including DDU-DU DDU-DU and Kill This Love, into international hits, making their foray into global superstardom.
Spurred on by this success, in April 2019, BLACKPINK became the first female K-pop act invited to perform at Coachella. Recently, they released their second full-length album BORN PINK which topped major music charts, including Billboard 200 album charts, and was recognized by numerous prestigious awards. It’s also on the verge of surpassing 3 million in album sales, making BLACKPINK the first K-Pop girl group to reach this milestone.
