BLACKPINK sells 1.5 million in preorders
BLACKPINK’s second studio album has already sold more than 1.5 million in preorders, according to YG Entertainment on Thursday, Aug. 18.
Expectations are high for the album to break sales records, especially since the LP “Born Pink” became available for preorders just a week ago and will be released on Sept. 16. First LP “The Album” sold 800,000 copies in six days in preorders and was the first million-selling album from a K-pop girl group.
The quartet will drop “Pink Venom” in advance of the full release on Friday, its first full-group return in almost two years. It will livestream one hour prior to the single’s release and celebrate the return with fans.
On Aug. 28, the band will perform at 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in New Jersey, becoming the first K-pop female artists to take to the stage at the popular awards ceremony. AP/JB
