Girl group BLACKPINK will extend their activities until the end of July, with the song ‘FOREVER YOUNG’.
According to YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK will wrap up their promotional activities related to the title song ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ this week, and will extend their activities with the sub-title song, ‘FOREVER YOUNG’. After receiving a lot of love and support from the fans after making comeback in 1 year, BLACKPINK will repay the fans by extending their promotional period.
The title song’ DDU-DU DDU-DU’ from BLACKPINK’s first mini album ‘SQUARE UP’ topped MBC ‘Show! Music Core’ and SBS ‘Inkigayo’ for 3 consecutive weeks, and achieved a ‘triple crown’ on the programs as part of their 9 crowns in music broadcasts.
As ‘Inkigayo’ places a song that reached no. 1 for 3 consecutive weeks into the hall of fame and removes it from the chart, people are wondering whether BLACKPINK will win the crown once again with the song ‘FOREVER YOUNG’ following their success with ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’.
Along with their great performances in music broadcasts, BLACKPINK is also achieving great success in music charts.
