The MTV VMAs — one of the four major annual US music shows, along with the Billboard Music Awards, the Grammy Awards and the American Music Awards – will take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Aug. 28.

During its U.S. award show debut stage, the band is set to showcase its new song, “Pink Venom” live for the first time after its release this Friday. “Pink Venom” is a pre-release single drawn from Blackpink’s upcoming second full-length album “Born Pink,” which is set for release on Sept. 16.

Blackpink is also headed to the ceremony as a nominee. At this year’s VMAs, the K-pop act has been nominated to the “Best Metaverse Performance” category as a group, while its member Lisa has been named for the “Best K-pop” category with her solo debut single “Lalisa.” The quartet previously won the “Song of the Summer” prize with “How You Like That” at the music awards.

Meanwhile, Blackpink is gearing up to make its long-awaited return to the music scene with “Pink Venom” this week. This marks the act’s full-group comeback in almost two years since it dropped its first studio album, “The Album,” in October 2020. After dropping the pre-release song Friday, the band will unveil its new album “Born Pink” on Sept. 16 and begin a world concert tour in October. JB
