Everything about the band Blackpink

The K-pop genre has long been a mesmerizing and alluring music world... And Blackpink is direct proof of that! In just four days, their new hit "How You Like That" has gathered 168 million views! And that's not the limit for the bright South Korean girl band.


Group History

Blackpink is YG Entertainment's first girl group in seven years, which, by the way, is famous for its incredible visuals and powerful club vibes... Blackpink debuted in the summer of 2016. Actually, the Square One album was a real breakthrough and fully met everyone's expectations!


Blackpink consists of four sweet-voiced beauties of South Korean origin: Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rose.


Jenny (nickname Jendeuk) was born on January 16, 1996, in Seoul, the capital city of South Korea. She is the lead rapper and backing vocalist in the group.

The beautiful Jisu (often called Chi Choo and Jichu) has established herself as the lead vocalist of the group. Curiously enough, Jisu speaks not only her native language, but also English and Japanese fluently!

Rose was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1997. Her phenomenon is her virtuoso guitar and piano playing!

And finally, Lisa. The girl was born in Thailand, March 27, 1997. In her home country she is widely known as Lalisa Manoban, but in Korea she started performing under the pseudonym Lalisa Manopal. She settled into the Blackpink lineup as the lead dancer, backing vocalist, and lead rapper. She is the youngest of the members, the so-called "maknae".


Just a few days after their debut, the band set a record of sorts: Blackpink won the Inkigayo show, which was a major achievement for them! Moreover, exactly one month later, the band repeated their success!


The first big hit of the band was the song "Boombayah", with which Blackpink began their victorious march to the Olympus of fame...

The second popular track of the group was the song "Whistle".

Square One was followed by Square Two, and with it the new hits "Stay" and "Playing With Fire.


Playing With Fire:

In the summer of 2017 Blackpink scored a new victory with the single "As If It's Your Last"! Already in the first 24 hours the video for the song was watched by more than 13 million people!

And as it turned out - this was far from the limit for the ambitious Girlband...

The success of How You Like That!

The other day, on June 26th, "Blackpink" presented a music video for their new hit "How You Like That". This time, the band's work gained 82 million views in 24 hours! Viewings were record-breaking! Today, their number exceeded 160 million (currently 168 million)...

Despite the stunning success of the Blackpink girls realize that they owe it not only to themselves, but also to each other...

"The secret of Blackpink harmony is the perfect combination of the energies of all the participants. Only through this can we reach new heights..." - Jenny said.
