SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Blackpink is obliterating records even before their second studio album 'Born Pink' has been released. They have become the first female act and girl group to cross two million pre-orders for the album and we still have three weeks to go before its release, during which this number is undoubtedly going to rise. It looks like fans were starved for content as Blackpink went on an almost two-year hiatus.

Their last comeback was ‘The Album’ back in October 2020. After that, the girls focused on their solo careers with Rosé and Lisa making their solo debut, Jisoo bagging her first lead role in a K-drama while Jennie dominated the fashion scene. We finally got some good news in summer 2022 as Blackpink released ‘Ready for Love’ and ‘Pink Venom’ days apart. And while ‘Pink Venom’ is just a pre-release for ‘Born Pink’, it could very well be considered a comeback as it too went on to break records.

Blackpink’s ‘Born Pink’ cross 2 million pre-orders

Blackpink has become the first K-pop girl group to perform at the 2022 VMAs while also being nominated for ‘Group of the Year’. In the meantime, the ‘Pink Venom’ music video crossed 90.4 million YouTube views in the first 24 hours making Blackpink the first female act to do so. The single also crossed 10.7 million unfiltered Spotify streams in the first 24 hours making it the first Korean song to do so. The girls will also go on their world tour ‘Born Pink’ with YG hinting at venues with a 1.5 million audience. And now, Blackpink earned their first double-million with the pre-orders for its album ‘Born Pink’.

Blackpink was the first girl group to cross one million pre-orders ever with ‘The Album’ in 2020. With ‘Born Pink’s two million pre-orders in two weeks, some think it can even cross three million. ‘Pink Venom’ has also broken more records as its dance practice video became the fastest 2022 video on YouTube to cross a million views breaking the record held by its music video. Its music video is also the fastest to cross 100 million YouTube views in less than two days by a female act. ‘Pink Venom’ even crossed 40.4 million unfiltered Spotify streams in five days making it the biggest 2022 debut by a K-pop act on Spotify in its first week.

THAT’S RIGHT, BIGGEST GIRLGROUP THINGSS.” Another asked, “The Album by BLACKPINK was the first album by a kpop girl group to surpass 1 million in 2020 and now Born Pink Being the first album by a kpop girl group to surpass 2 million pre-orders and there is still 3 weeks left 😭.Now where are those who said bp lost relevancy in hiatus??” One said, “2 million pre orders in just 2 weeks!!!
