Blackpink debuted as a group in August with singles “Boombayah” and “Whistle.” Both songs went immediately to No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart. Blackpink is not your typical girl group. Like the name implies, the group showcases a fusion of girly spunk and hip-hop vibes.
