BLACKPINK Earns Another First on Billboard

It was revealed that BLACKPINK has become the first female group to spend a total of 30 weeks on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart with "The Album." The last all-girl band who achieved such a milestone was American girl group Pussycat Dolls in 2008.

Most, if not all, BLINKs are aware that "The Album" by BLACKPINK was released on Oct. 2, 2020. The EP, which served as the first Korean-language studio album of the group, saw early success after it effortlessly debuted at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 2020 with over 110,000 units sold.

Not only that because BLACKPINK's "The Album" was also proclaimed as the highest-charting album by an all-female group since "Welcome to the Dollhouse" by Danity Kane in 2018. It was also pronounced as the highest-charting female Korean album and reached the No. 1 spots in Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, and many other countries around the world.

The official music video of "How You Like That," which is the official carrier single of "The Album," garnered more than 86.3 million views within its first day of release on YouTube. It even broke the record as the most viewed music video in its first 24 hours, which was previously earned by BTS' "Boy with Luv."

"The Album" also contained the very first track collaboration of BLACKPINK with Disney album Selena Gomez and pop songstress Ariana Grande, who was credited as one of the composers, called "Ice Cream." The said song served as the second single of the EP and was released to the public on Aug. 28, 2020. It peaked at No. 13 on Billboard Hot 100, which is the group's highest-charting single in the United States.
