BLACKPINK is Now the Biggest Music Act in the World, Bloomberg Says

K-Pop group BLACKPINK has been named the world’s biggest music act after topping Bloomberg’s Pop Star Power Rankings.

Bloomberg trailed four-week album sales, digital song streams, YouTube views, and 30-day total interactions on Instagram to rank 25 of the biggest musical acts in the world. Live show ticket sales remained a category despite being uncounted for all artists given the unique circumstances the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the live show industry in 2020. BLACKPINK ranked #9 in album sales, #2 in streams on Spotify, and #1 in YouTube views to take the top spot of #1 in the world. BLACKPINK, managed by YG Entertainment, debuted in August 2016 with members Rosé, Lisa, Jisoo, and Jennie. The group’s fanbase is known as “Blink”.
