In early October, BLACKPINK released their first full-length album, aptly titled The Album, to much fanfare. Several standout tracks including pre-release singles How You Like That and Ice Cream feat. US singer-actress Selena Gomez, along with Lovesick Girls and Bet You Wanna featuring American rapper Cardi B.
The quartet — the group’s leader Jennie, Jisoo, Rose, and Lisa — has performed on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as Good Morning America to promote the new songs off their album. They recently broke records as they reached 1.4 billion views and 1.1 billion views for their MVs, DDU-DU DDU-DU and Kill This Love, respectively.
BLACKPINK’s virtual performance tomorrow is a follow-up to Tokopedia’s WIB program back in July, when they featured fellow K-pop sensation BTS.
