First we had Akdong Musician, then we had back-to-back comebacks from WINNER, SECHSKIES, and Psy. All of the releases were extremely successful, but YG Entertainment is not resting on their laurels. Instead, we’ll be looking at more comebacks.
An official from YG Entertainment has confirmed that the label’s only girl group, BLACKPINK, will be dropping their album in June.
This was reported by South Korean media outlet OSEN, who explained that the rookie group is already in the midst of preparing their album. As their comeback will take place during the summer season, many are anticipating BLACKPINK’s upcoming concept.
We don’t have an exact date yet, but BLACKPINK will most likely promote their album after iKON’s impending comeback. The boy group dropped a mysterious teaser image on 1st May, but has yet to release any follow-up teasers.
G-Dragon will also be embarking on his solo world tour “ACT III, M.O.T.T.E (Moment Of Truth The End)“, and word on the street is that he’ll drop his solo album before that. Fellow group member Taeyang also just dropped the music video for “So Good“, a collaboration track with Lexus LC.
BLACKPINK made their debut in August 2016 after years of teasing by their label. The group’s debut title tracks – “Boombayah” and “Whistle” – hit it right with fans, as the former has already amassed more than 150 millions views on YouTube with the latter at around 107 million views. “Playing With Fire”, their follow-up track, has also reached 111 million views, further proving their popularity with K-Pop fans.
We can’t wait to see BLACKPINK back in action! Here’s hoping that YG Entertainment keeps their word ;)
