In January, their smash hit “DDU-DU DDU-DU” led them to become the first K-pop group to reach 2 billion views on a YouTube music video. During that same month, Lisa notably set three new world records, becoming the first solo K-pop winner at the MTV Video Music Awards, the first solo K-pop winner at the MTV Europe Music Awards for the Best K-Pop category, and the most-followed K-pop artist on Instagram.
BLACKPINK are currently on their “Born Pink” world tour. The group’s oldest member, Jisoo, recently revealed the release date of her highly anticipated debut solo single.
