The Korean girl group BLACKPINK made their music debut in August 2016, and ever since then, fans have become obsessed with the talented foursome. Comprised of members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa, the K-pop musicians have broken tons of records since dropping their first song and even collaborated with some major names in the industry. In fact, they’ve even been dubbed the world’s biggest girl group!
“We’re very honored to be named the biggest girl group because we all started wanting to be that,” Jennie told Forbes in December 2020. “And it’s hard to see the reality where people actually call us that. We feel very responsible … and pressure … Even though it’s a big title and with the amount of love and support we receive … I guess we want to keep doing what we do, be a group of positive influences and keep making great music for you guys. We’re very grateful for how the world sees us and it gives us motivation.”
With a Coachella performance under their belt, a super-successful debut album and more, there’s truly nothing these ladies can’t do! They’re total proof that girls run the world, even outside of their group. In April 2021, member Rosé was named Tiffany & Co.’s ambassador and the face of their digital campaign.
“I’ve worn Tiffany jewelry since I was in high school,” the musician told Vogue. “To be a part of such an iconic brand that has been a part of my life for a long time makes it that much more special to me. I’m very honored and excited.”
The news came nearly a month after the songstress releases her first solo song, “On the Ground.” During a March 2021 interview with Rolling Stone, Rosé remembered how she nabbed the track. “I hadn’t heard a song like that before. I didn’t expect to hear a song like that because every song that we get or begin with doesn’t have these kinds of messages in it. For us, it was kind of like, I think this song kinda speaks our mind.”
She’s not the only member whose gone solo! Jennie dropped the single “SOLO” in November 2018. “I think by having solo projects, it allows us to expand our music range,” she told The Hollywood Reporter at the time. “There’s a type of music and concept we can do as a group and do as solo artists.”
