'The Album': Blackpink to drop first full-length LP, excited fans say 'we waited four years for this'
Blackpink are less than an hour away from dropping their first-ever full-length LP titled 'The Album'. The South Korean girl group managed by YG Entertainment had been teasing the album for weeks with individual posters of each member and short clips that narrated a tiny part of a larger story. Fans of the K-pop superstars spent weeks trying to figure out all the messages and hidden facts about the upcoming album with the help of the teasers but now, they won't have to wait long for it.
Blackpink – which consists of members Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé – had previously announced the release date for 'The Album' as October 2. The complete tracklist is as follows:
‘How You Like That’
‘Ice Cream’ featuring Selena Gomez
‘Bet U Wanna’ featuring Cardi B
‘Crazy Over You’
‘Love to Hate Me’
‘You Never Know’
'The Album', which consists of eight tracks, has kept fans excited for weeks on end. Now, with the album just about to drop, fans are taking to Twitter to talk about how big the moment is. One fan, speaking about how patient they have been and posting a video of unboxing the vinyl version of 'The Album', tweeted, "'The Album' is so pretty. I love it, especially version four. I'll do a giveaway later. Let's stream hard for Blackpink. We waited for so long for this full album #BLACKPINK #THEALBUM #THEALBUMToday #LovesickGirls @BLACKPINK." Talking about the songs on the record, another fan wrote, "Rosé said they have songs included on the album from years ago... they've been waiting SO LONG for this moment @BLACKPINK #THEALBUM."
