Amid the dominant trend of female musicians in the North American pop market, K-pop girl group BLACKPINK has added to the brilliance. BLACKPINK has been nominated in six categories at the '2023 MTV Video Music Awards' (VMA), one of the major US pop music award ceremonies.
BLACKPINK (Jennie, Rosé, Jisoo, Lisa) is set to conclude their massive world tour, which attracted 1.75 million attendees, at the Gocheok Sky Dome. This marks the first time a K-pop girl group has held a solo concert at this venue.
YG Entertainment (hereafter referred to as YG) recorded outstanding performance in the second quarter. This is largely attributed to BLACKPINK, the leading artist group under YG's wing. The focus now shifts to whether YG, which heavily relies on BLACKPINK, can devise a new revenue model, especially with the group's contract renewal looming.
