BLACKPINK has been named Entertainer of the Year by TIME.
The news was shared by the magazine on 6 December, writing, “Blackpink has managed to become the biggest girl group in the world precisely by allowing its members – Jisoo, Rosé, Jennie, and Lisa – to be solo stars in their own right.
“The group may be bigger than the sum of its parts, but each of its parts is bigger than most other pop groups’ combined efforts. As the culture becomes more stratified, Blackpink has managed to succeed by demanding our attention everywhere we have attention to give: not just in our headphones, but also in fashion and on screen.”
The group released its second studio album, “Born Pink” back in September, which had since become the best-selling album by a Korean girl group, with over 2 million album sales.
Its first song, “Pink Venom” has received 461 million views on YouTube, meanwhile “Shutdown” has 265 million since its release two months ago.
