A fan wrote, 'DID THAT W/ ONLY 8 F**KING SONGS BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER'
Blackpink is breaking records yet again, but this time, they seemed to have made history by adding yet another feather to their caps.
The beloved girl group from South Korea has earned several notable achievements during 2020, and as of now, they've just joined the "million-seller" club, according to Soompi. To reiterate, this means that Blackpink has just sold over a million album units for their new debut LP, titled 'The Album', making them the first Korean girl group to achieve this feat.
Blackpink's label, YG Entertainment, announced today (October 26) that the debut album amassed a total of 1,209,543 album sales. This figure is a combination of 319,300 copies sold in the United States and Europe, and 871,355 copies sold domestically. Additionally, the limited edition vinyl album version, with its 18,888 copies sold, was sold out almost as soon as it was released.
As expected, Blinks are flooding Twitter with their excitement and continuous chants of "BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER."
One fan said, "DID THAT W/ ONLY 8 F**KING SONGS BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER." Another fan said, "BLACKPINK MILLION SELLER WITH ONE FULL ALBUM."

The massive win for the group today is one of several notable achievements as of late. 'The Album' also skyrocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Albums charts in 57 countries. The physical version of the album, which released on October 6, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart as well as on the UK Official Charts albums chart. This is another milestone moment for Blackpink as it broke the record for K-pop girl groups on both those charts. Additionally, their new album is still currently impacting the Billboard 200, at No. 10, which marks Blackpink as the first Korean girl group to stay in the Top 10 for three weeks in a row. Bear in mind, all these achievements were garnered within less than a month, as 'The Album' was released on October 2.
Meanwhile, the past several months have seen the group's music videos getting a whole lot of love and breaking records. In September, Blackpink became the first K-pop group with multiple music videos to cross 1 billion YouTube views as the 'Kill This Love' video reached the mark.
Congratulations, Blackpink, for your ongoing success and massive achievements.
