Blackpink (Korean: 블랙핑크; Beullaekpingkeu, stylized in all caps or as BLɅϽKPIИK) is a South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment and consisting of members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa. Cited as the “biggest girl group in the world”, they are considered the most successful Korean girl group internationally and a leading force in the Korean Wave. They are stylistically associated with the “girl crush” concept in K-pop—exploring themes of self-confidence and female empowerment.

Blackpink debuted in August 2016 with their single album Square One, which featured “Whistle” and “Boombayah”, their first number-one entries on South Korea’s Gaon Digital Chart and the US Billboard World Digital Songs chart, respectively. It was followed by the single album Square Two in November, whose song “Playing with Fire” was the first by a Korean girl group to enter the Billboard Canadian Hot 100. The group expanded their global reach with “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” (2018), which was the first song by a Korean female group to enter the UK Singles Chart and receive a certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Its music video was the first by a Korean group to surpass one and two billion views on YouTube, and remains the most-viewed by a Korean group to date. Their music videos for “Kill This Love” (2019) and “How You Like That” (2020) each set records for the most-viewed music video within the first 24 hours of release, with the latter breaking five Guinness World Records.

Blackpink is the highest-charting female Korean act on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 13 with “Ice Cream” (2020), and on the US Billboard 200, peaking at number one with Born Pink (2022). Blackpink’s studio albums The Album (2020) and Born Pink each broke the record for the best-selling female album of all time in South Korea, becoming the first to surpass one million and two million copies sold, respectively. Born Pink was the first album by a girl group to reach number one on the Billboard 200 since Danity Kane in 2008 and set two Guinness World Records as the first album by a Korean girl group to top the Billboard 200 as well as the UK Albums Chart. The album’s lead single “Pink Venom” (2022) was the first song by a Korean group to reach number one on Australia’s ARIA Singles Chart and the first by a girl group to reach number one on the Billboard Global 200.

Blackpink have broken numerous records throughout their career; their Born Pink World Tour (2022–23) became the highest-grossing concert tour by a female group, and they were the first Asian act to headline Coachella. They have the most-subscribed and most-viewed music artist channel on YouTube, and are the most-followed and most-streamed girl group on Spotify. Blackpink’s other accolades include several Golden Disc Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, and MTV Video Music Awards, among them the first Group of the Year win by a girl group in the 21st century. They were the first girl group to enter Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Asia, and were named Time’s 2022 Entertainer of the Year. The group has been ranked among the top of the Forbes Korea Power Celebrity list and recognized by former South Korean President Moon Jae-in for spreading K-pop and Korean culture worldwide.

Blackpink’s journey began with YG Entertainment’s global auditions, aiming to form a new girl group following the success of 2NE1 in 2009. Trainee life at YG was described as rigorous, akin to a pop-star academy, with members Jennie and Rosé comparing it to The X Factor with dormitories. Despite the challenges, preparations for Blackpink’s debut commenced in 2011, with official confirmation of their debut in July 2016, after years of speculation and delays. The lineup was finalized with members Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rosé, after initial considerations for a larger group size were abandoned, leading to the group’s name, Blackpink, symbolizing talent beyond beauty. Their highly anticipated debut was set for August 8, 2016.

Jennie, the first member revealed, joined YG Entertainment in 2010, followed by Lisa, the label’s first foreign trainee, in 2011. Jisoo, introduced in June 2016, had been a trainee since 2011, appearing in various media before her official debut. Rosé, the final member, joined after topping auditions in Australia in 2012. The group’s formation marked a significant moment in K-pop history, with their debut dance practice video garnering substantial attention ahead of their highly awaited debut.

Promotions for Blackpink’s debut kicked off in early August 2016 with teasers, images, and advertisements, marking the group’s highly anticipated return as YG Entertainment’s first girl group in seven years. Their debut single album, “Square One,” dropped on August 8, 2016, featuring the tracks “Boombayah” and “Whistle.” Both songs swiftly climbed the charts, with “Whistle” hitting number one on the Gaon Digital Chart. Blackpink’s inaugural music show appearance on SBS’s Inkigayo followed, culminating in their first win just two weeks after debut. Their promotions for “Square One” concluded with another victory on Inkigayo by September 11, 2016.

Following their successful debut, Blackpink released their second single album, “Square Two,” on November 1, 2016, comprising “Playing with Fire” and “Stay.” The group continued to dominate the charts, with “Playing with Fire” reaching the top spot on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart and making history as the first K-pop girl group song to chart on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100. Their achievements during their rookie period earned them multiple awards at major year-end music award shows in South Korea, solidifying their position as one of the best new K-pop acts of 2016.
