What makes BLACKPINK popular?
With the success of their latest album, Born Pink, BLACKPINK’s supremacy in the K-pop genre is undisputed. After a record-breaking success both in the US and the UK, this girl band managed by YG Entertainment, has come a long way since its debut in 2016. Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa and Rosé have become household names owing to their ultra-sleek visuals, catchy songs with a trendy hip-hop vibe and lyrics that are both aspirational and relatable to Gen Z.
