There is really no stopping BLACKPINK from dominating the music scene, either in group or solos.
Just recently, BLACKPINK member Rosé’s debut solo album has reached 400,000 copies in pre-orders to set a record.
In a report, YG Entertainment, the agency behind the all-famed group, said that Rose’s single album “R” reached the milestone last March 8 to become the biggest pre-order for a female solo artist in K-pop history.
These pre-orders mostly came from Korea and neighboring countries like China, Japan, and even Europe and the United States.
Set to be released on March 12, “R” contains two songs entitled “Gone”, and “On the Ground”.
To date, the teaser for the music video of “On the Ground has garnered a total of 13M views since its upload on March 7, and 4.8M views for its second teaser posted just last March 9.
YG Entertainment said that the album’s title “R,” the first letter of Rosé’s name, means a new beginning for her and her first step as a solo artist.
She is reportedly going to perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on March 16. Rosé is the second member of BLACKPINK to release solo music after Jennie’s “Solo” in 2018.
