In 2016, a new band came to life: The South Korean K-Pop group, founded by YG Entertainment label, has been conquering the world ever since and has ensured, among other things, that K-Pop has also gained international fame. It’s a pure girl group, which consists of the members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa.
The four young women have won the hearts of countless fans with their music. They are known for their energetic songs, which are accompanied by strong beats and impressive choruses. You could also describe their music as a mix of pop, hip-hop and EDM, giving each track a unique sound. The impressive live performances attract the fans with fantastic stage designs and extraordinary costumes every time.
Another factor that makes the group so famous is their close connection to the fans, who are affectionately called "Blinks". For example, their rising fame meant that BLACKPINK became the first K-pop group to perform at the Coachella Festival.
BLACKPINK's greatest musical successes
Their 2018 EP SQUARE UP includes one of the band's biggest hits to date: "DDU-DU DDU-DU" became a global phenomenon upon release. Other songs that have helped the band to their musical success are "Lovesick Girls", "How You Like That" or "Kill This Love". The girl group has also worked with some very well-known musicians: For "Ice Cream" they brought Selena Gomez on board, in "Sour Candy" they are alongside pop icon Lady Gaga.
The debut studio album THE ALBUM was released in 2020 and it didn't take long for the record to hit #2 on the US Billboard Charts. This is the highest-charting album by a Korean K-pop girl group in Billboard chart history! The album has also broken all sales and streaming records in other countries. The group's current album is BORN PINK, which is more elaborate in terms of production and even more emotional in terms of lyrics than all previous releases.
BLACKPINK's exceptional merchandise & exclusive album versions
The special relationship between K-Pop groups is often reflected in their merchandise. An example is the famous Lightstick, a glowstick specially designed for fans to support the group at concerts. BLACKPINK are also based on the common practice in K-Pop of considering special and exclusive editions of their albums. For example, there are four different versions of the last album BORN PINK, one for each of the four members. Each variant then contains other goodies, mostly individual photo books, lyric sheets, selfies or posters.
Of course there is also a standard version of each record or a colored vinyl if you can do without the goodies. The BLACKPINK merchandise picks up on the spirit of the band and comes mainly in the colors black and pink - that was to be expected, wasn't it? Grab a shirt with a photo grid design showing the four members or get the BLACKPINK hoodie with pink writing. We will then ensure that the official BLACKPINK merch is delivered to your home as quickly as possible!
