Finally, their debut date has been set.
The debut date of YG Entertainment’s new girl group BLACKPINK has been decided. Since it is YG’s first new girl group in eight years, expectations are running high and fans will be able to check if BLACKPINK really does match up to their high expectations. As the name indicates, BLACKPINK is fierce and probably become the frontrunner in the competition to dominate summer music charts.
According to a high-ranking YG official, BLACKPINK is to debut on August 1 or 8. They finished shooting the music videos and are making final touches so that BLACKPINK debuts with high-quality music videos. From last month, YG has revealed the members of BLACKPINK one by one to raise people’s expectations. BLACKPINK’s debut has become a big issue not only among music lovers but also among those in the music industry.
Since BLACKPINK is to debut in the first week of August, their debut will be the highlight of the war between girl groups to dominate summer music charts. YG announced earlier on that BLACKPINK will be releasing new songs every month until December, and as such, BLACKPINK is likely to remain in the spotlight until the end of this year. YG proved that all the members of its new girl group are talented when it revealed them, and so expectations are running especially high.
After the recent finale of Mnet’s rapper survival program Show Me The Money 5, there weren’t any big issues in Korea’s music scene. Although a number of girl groups made a comeback and topped the charts, they all failed in becoming a big issue. As YG’s brainchild, BLACKPINK is likely to become a big issue in the tranquil music scene of today.
BLACKPINK hasn’t even debuted yet, but the group became a hot topic not only in Korea but also abroad. BLACKPINK is a like a little sister to BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON. The dance practice video of BLACKPINK released earlier on posted high views and raised hopes for the birth of a mega girl group.
YG’s new girl group BLACKPINK showed that it is different from any other girl group even before its debut. It will be interesting to see if BLACKPINK becomes the winner of the summer girl group war and sweeps rookie awards at the end of the year.
