Hollywood, USA – Rejoice mga Blinks!

For the first time, ang Blackpink ang unang K-pop female group in history na nakasungkit ng No. 1 spot sa music and entertainment magazine Billboard’s main albums chart. For the record, ang Blackpink ngayon ang one of global music fans’ most beloved artists, six years after its debut.

Sabi ng Billboard, ang second full-length album ng Blackpink na “Born Pink,” released on Sept. 16, landed atop its 200 chart with 102,000 equivalent album units sold.

Dahil dito, ang Blackpink ang fourth K-pop group to rise to the top of the Billboard main chart, na sinundan ang boy bands na BTS, SuperM at Stray Kids.

The Blackpink din ang first female act to reach No. 1 since American girl group Danity Kane reached the milestone in 2008.

Ang “Born Pink” ay mostly English-language songs.

“We wanted to show our team identity and more advanced music through ‘Born Pink,”’ sabi ng group sa isang press statement.

Last Friday naman, nag-debut ang “Born Pink” sa Britain’s Official Albums Chart Top 100, kaya ang Blackpink ngayon ang the only female Asian act to top major charts in both UK and US.

Recently, ang grupo rin ang first K-pop act to top the world’s largest music streaming service Spotify’s weekly chart with “Shut Down”.

Bago pa ini-release ang “Born Pink,” na-surpass na nito ang 2 million copies na pre-prdered ng Blinks, according to music market tracker Circle Chart.

Record-breaker din ang biggest first-week sales by a K-pop girl group in history with more than 1.54 million copies sold, sabi ng data from Hanteo Chart, another music market tracker here.

Naka-schedule na ang world tour ng Blackpink dubbed as “Blackpink World Tour ‘Born Pink,’” which is scheduled to kick off at the KSPO Dome in Olympic Park in southern Seoul on Oct. 15 to 16. Bibisitahin din ng group ang Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, London, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Bangkok, Abu Dhabi, Jakarta, Manila, Melbourne at Sydney. Joey Sarmiento
