BLACKPINK’s Jisoo Breaks Record For Highest Stock Pre-Orders Achieved By Any Female Soloist In History
Even before her solo debut, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo is already making history as a solo artist!
On March 20, YG Entertainment officially announced that Jisoo’s upcoming solo single album “ME” had surpassed 950,000 stock pre-orders. With this figure, Jisoo has set a new record for the highest number of stock pre-orders achieved by any female soloist in history.
The number of stock pre-orders is the amount of album stock that is produced prior to an album’s release. The figure is the estimated demand calculated using various factors, including how many albums were pre-ordered by fans.
YG Entertainment commented, “Considering that there are still 11 days left until the album’s release, it may be worth looking forward to [Jisoo] securing the title of first female K-pop solo ‘million seller.'”
If Jisoo succeeds in selling a million copies of “ME,” she will become only the fourth solo artist in history to achieve “million-seller” status both as a soloist and as a member of a group, following Seo Taiji (of Seo Taiji and Boys), EXO‘s Baekhyun, and BTS‘s Jin.
Congratulations to Jisoo on her new record!
Jisoo will make her solo debut with “ME” and its title track “FLOWER” on March 31 at 1 p.m. KST. Check out her latest teasers here!
