BLACKPINK is a four- member South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment, consisting of Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa. They debuted in 2016 and had already released three albums and received several awards in South Korea.
In May, BLACKPINK members Jennie and Lisa attended Dua Lipa’s concert in Seoul. There was speculation that Lipa might collaborate with the group after Lipa posted a photo of herself with Jennie and Lisa, two of the members of Blackpink, at Lipa’s Seoul concert in May.
Lipa captioned the photo: “IN YOUR AREA”, a reference to a line in Blackpink’s debut single Boombayah.
In the short span of just two years, the quartet has risen quickly. Last month, the girls set a record when the music video for their song Ddu-du Ddu-du hit 300 million views in 69 days, making them the fastest K-pop act to do so.
