YG Entertainment announced that pre-orders for BLACKPINK’s upcoming album BORN PINK have exceeded 1.5 million copies.
This highly-anticipated smash is already expected to set all-time records. Considering that the release date for the album (September 16th) is still a month away, it’s not at all impossible for the number to spike up to 2 million, or maybe even 3 million.
Earlier, BLACKPINK has confirmed their appearance in the major American music award ceremony MTV VMAs and scheduled a world tour in North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania. Tomorrow, BLACKPINK will drop the pre-released song “Pink Venom,” heightening the comeback fever.

Meanwhile, BLACKPINK became the first K-pop girl group to win the title of million-seller with their first full album THE ALBUM and to rank second in UK’s Official Chart. Considering the fact that the act’s fandom has only grown since then, the industry is expecting the group to surpass their previous records.
BLACKPINK’s presence on YouTube is unparalleled. Their channel has accumulated over 25 billion views and currently has more than 76.7 million subscribers, No. 1 among all male and female artists around the world.
