BLACKPINK Sets New Girl Group Record With Stock Pre-Orders For Upcoming Album
According to YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK is on track to make history with their upcoming first full-length album!
On September 4, the agency announced that BLACKPINK’s first studio album “THE ALBUM” had already surpassed 800,000 stock pre-orders in just six days. (The upcoming album racked up over 530,000 stock pre-orders within Korea, as well as an additional 270,000 pre-orders from the United States and Europe.)
YG Entertainment stated, “As soon as pre-orders began for BLACKPINK’s limited-edition ‘THE ALBUM’ LP, it sold out in a split second. Pre-orders for the regular album also exceeded our initial expected volume, so we are currently in the process of producing more albums.”
“THE ALBUM,” which is due out on October 2, will include BLACKPINK’s collaboration with Lady Gaga, “Sour Candy,” their first pre-release single “How You Like That,” and their more recent collaboration with Selena Gomez, “Ice Cream.” The full track list for the album has yet to be revealed.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK on their impressive achievement!
