Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa are members of the South Korean girl band BlackPink, which YG Entertainment created. The group made their debut in August 2016 with their single album Square One, which included the singles “Whistle” and “Boombayah,” which went to number one on the Gaon Digital List in South Korea and the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart in the United States, respectively.
Blackpink is the highest-charting female Korean act on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Ice Cream” (2020), and on the Billboard 200, with The Album (2020), which is also the first-ever album by a Korean girl group to sell over one million copies. They became the first Korean female group to join and top Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart and three times topped the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart.
With their hit single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” (2018), Blackpink became the first female Korean act to get a certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and their music video is presently the most-viewed by a Korean group on YouTube. Their 2018 single “Kiss and Makeup,” a duet with Dua Lipa, was the first by a Korean group to be certified by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and the Australian Recording Industry Association as platinum (ARIA).
