According to sources, the six-week promotions for BLACKPINK’s second album “SQUARE TWO” is coming to an end after the group’s appearance on SBS’s Inkigayo on December 11.
BLACKPINK made a comeback on November 1 with “PLAYING WITH FIRE” and “STAY”. The two title tracks have swept the charts, proving that the group is indeed a monster rookie. “PLAYING WITH FIRE” became no.1 on Inkigayo for two weeks in a row, on November 27 and December 4.
BLACKPINK is also nominated for the no.1 spot for December 11. Fans are wondering whether the group will be able to take the no.1 spot for three weeks in a row and achieve a triple crown.
After rounding up its official promotions, BLACKPINK will attend the 2016 Seoul Awards Festival. The group will also make appearances in award ceremonies at the end of the year.
“PLAYING WITH FIRE” has set numerous new records: it became no.1 on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart; ranked high on its World Albums, Heartseekers-Pacific, Heartseekers Albums, Social 50 charts; and entered Canada’s Hot 100 Chart for the first time as a K-pop girl group.
