Billboard hails BLACKPINK as the first-ever Korean girl band to hit the top spot upon the release of girls’ first full-length album ‘The Album,’ and the third K-pop band to hit number 1 spot on the Artist Billboard 100 Chart

Following BTS, BLACKPINK is not far behind as the two K-pop groups break off records and write history together. Placing at number 65 on the Artist Billboard 100 chart last week, the girl group rapidly climbs to the top spot.

Upon releasing their full-length album with other songs featuring Western Artists, Selena Gomez and Cardi B, BLACKPINK managed to get into the Billboard’s 100 Artist Chart

BLACKPINK gains notoriety on Billboard

The Billboard’s Artist 100 Chart is where worldwide artists’ activities are ranked from 1-100, from album sales, radio programs, streaming, consumption, and social media engagement. 

The chart is said to be hard to infiltrate. Still, with BLACKPINK’s recent comeback and media engagements, the achievement was easily attained. This has been a prosperous year for the girls despite the challenges of the widespread COVID-19 pandemic. 

From dominating charts to surpassing western artists renowned for their music is indeed a surreal moment and a history to be written under BLACKPINK’s achievements.
