YG Entertainment founder and acting chief Yang Hyun-seok’s faith in BLACKPINK has been well and truly justified. These girls just became the 1st K-Pop girl group to top the Billboard chart with debut songs!
Now that they’ve returned for their comeback, they’re shaking us again. Oh well.
BLACKPINK, YG Entertainment’s first new girl group in seven years, is still sweeping music charts on their comeback. On November 1, “PLAYING WITH FIRE” ranked No.1 on the charts of major music-streaming websites like Genie Music, NAVER Music, Olleh Music, Mnet.com, etc. as well as its other title track “STAY”.
Music videos for the two songs are also running hot on YouTube, with even a dance practice video for “Playing With Fire” recording around two million views on its first day. These girls are truly on the rise!
It is a very exceptional case for rookie girl group to sweep No.1 on music charts upon their debut. Music fans are expressing keen interest in the next moves of BLACKPINK who is writing new history of girl group right from their debut.
BLACKPINK had their comeback performance in “INKIGAYO” on Nov. 6. Their second comeback performance in “M-Countdown” show will be on Nov. 10. We are also quite excited to see BLACKPINK’s first ever episode on MBC Every1’s entertainment show “Weekly Idol”!
