With Blackpink’s hiatus being the same duration as most South Korean’s men’s mandatory military service, frustrated fans have banded together to ask for a comeback. In 2021, despite no comebacks, the popular girl group continued to prove their global influence through solo releases, a Japanese version of their first studio album, their second documentary which was a best-seller and nominations and awards at international award shows.

2021 was a good year for Blackpink as they were roped in for UN’s Climate Change Conference, dabbled in fashion as they were invited to Paris Fashion Week, Rosé attended the Met Gala while Lisa debuted as a runway model for Celine. Jisoo landed her first major acting role in the K-drama ‘Snowdrop’ while Jennie has been constantly part of Chanel’s campaigns last year. However, fans feel that with Blackpink being a music group first and foremost, they should also be releasing new music.

Blackpink's last comeback was in October 2020

In their five-year career as one of the biggest girl groups in the world, Blackpink has only had one studio album, two mini-albums and three single albums. While we used to get one comeback a year, these have also become less frequent. Their last comeback was in October 2020 with the single ‘Lovesick Girls’ for their studio album ‘The Album’. Fans have been wondering with Blackpink’s immense global popularity that would surely sell out any album they would put out, why hasn’t their label YG given them a comeback.

Blackpink has constantly broken records and made history like becoming the first K-pop girl group to have a million-seller album, the highest-charting female K-pop act on Billboard 200 and Hot 100, first K-pop act to perform at Coachella, having Guinness World Records and being the first K-pop girl group to be recognized by Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Asia list. The music video of ‘Ddu-du Ddu-du’ became the first K-pop group music video to cross 1 billion YouTube views while they are the most subscribed artist on the platform. ‘The Album’ has 100 awards making Blackpink the first girl group to cross this achievement.

'Give Blackpink some music'

With Jisoo sharing on January 9, that there were hopes of a Blackpink comeback soon, fans were finally rejoicing. However, that seems to have been delayed according to an insider report which had frustrated fans banding together on January 11 to trend on Twitter. Fans are also boycotting the new merch in hopes that their protests are heard by YG.

Blinks made tweets like, “The next blackpink comeback better be a full length album with 10-12 songs, not a single or mini album. bp is your biggest artist, wake upp yg??” Another fan shared, “PLEASE... THIS IS THE ONLY THING I HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR!!! I MISS THE GURLS SO MUCH:(( WE WANT BLACKPINK COMEBACK.”

One posted, “Not Letting Lisa and Rosé Attend A Year End Shows to Promote their Solo Debut, Not giving Jennie a proper schedule,and not giving A full Assurance about Jisoo's Solo What's Not clicking @ygent_official.” Another fan pointed out, “Next year is literally the last year of their contract and we are still demanding the bare minimum?? #STOPDELAYINGBLACKPINK.” One Blink commented, “IMAGINE WASTING THESE GIRLS' TALENTS AND NOT GIVING THEM WHAT THEY DESERVE, I HATE YOU YG.” Another added, “Let's stop with the QUALITY OVER QUANTITY agenda you're talking about, it's 2022 now give BLACKPINK some Music!!!”
