Blackpink is one of the most famous K-pop girl groups out there. The foursome made up of Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rose, have taken over the world with their catchy tunes and killer choreography.
They’ve been around for almost six years now, but it wasn’t until recently that they really started to make waves. Let’s take a look at how Blackpink became an international K-pop sensation….
Their first song was a huge hit. Blackpink released their first song, Boombayah in 2016 and it immediately went viral. The video has been viewed 1.4 Billion times on Youtube and has had millions of views on other platforms too.
Also, knowing that they are extra famous in western countries, especially in America and Europe, they have collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry which make them rise once again.
Blackpink started on the music scene last 2016 with a loud bang, with their “Boombayah” and “Whistle” music videos going viral among k-pop fans. The girls had the perfect formula for success: mighty fine choreography and a catchy tune. The four girls have earned themselves an international fanbase who cannot get enough of them. It surely helps that they have complete control over the creative process of all their works: right down to selecting the styling, sets, and locations. To fellow artists in the music industry, it may not seem like much but it’s definitely not easy managing one’s group while trying to achieve individual pursuits as well.
Yet Blackpink has been able to captivate people around the world by selling out shows across several continents, giving exclusive interviews to the international press, launching an official account, and keeping their social media accounts updated with lively posts.
Blackpink is not just a female group that appeals to Asian fan bases, but they have also attracted global attention by stepping up their game as artists. They have been on music talk shows where they show off not just their singing skills but also their charisma and variety skills.
