YG stocks rise as Blackpink comeback and world tour announced, fans say 'the power they hold'
Looks like the wait is finally over for Blinks (fans of Blackpink) who will finally be able to see the biggest K-pop girl group in the world, Blackpink, make a comeback. After a lot of chaos on Twitter with fans demanding a new comeback from YG Entertainment, calling them out for mistreating the girl group, Blackpink will be making a comeback this August. On July 6, YG Entertainment revealed that Blackpink is currently in the final stages of recording a new album.
The label stated that they are going to start filming a music video in July with a new album release in August. While talking about the comeback and potential future activities, YG Entertainment stated that after the release of the comeback album, "Blackpink will go on the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group by the end of the year along with their comeback to expand their rapport with fans around the world." With a promise that a large scale of Blackpink-related projects will continue thereafter.
YG's stocks rise after new album announcement for Blackpink
This Blackpink comeback is indeed a highly-anticipated one as it comes almost two years since their last. Blackpink last made their full group comeback with 'The Album' which was also surprisingly their first album release after four years since their debut. The album was released in October 2020 with the pre-released title track 'How You Like That' as well as 'Lovesick Girls' and their collab single, 'Ice Cream' featuring American singer Selena Gomez along with the viral hit 'Pretty Savage' which had taken over TikTok.
The first full-length album from Blackpink sold over 1.4 million copies making them the first-ever million-seller girl group in the history of K-pop. Now the new announcement from YG Entertainment about a Blackpink comeback may possibly herald a bigger sales record from the girl group as following the announcement of the album, fans reported that YG Entertainment's stocks that had been down suddenly started rising. One fan said, "YG Ent. has seen an immediate stock rise since @BLACKPINK’s comeback has been announced for August."
