The quartet recently released the music video for their prerelease single “Pink Venom” – their most expensive music video to date – and also performed the song during their U.S. award show debut at the 2022 MTV VMAs last month. Alongside K-pop groups BTS and Seventeen, they made history with notable wins. During the award show, BLACKPINK won Best Metaverse Performance for their virtual concert and collaboration with “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile,” where they debuted the music video for “Ready For Love.”
