To say BLACKPINK‘s first Korean-language studio effort, ‘The Album,’ is one of the year’s most highly anticipated releases would be a severe understatement.
At writing, the set’s reportedly passed the “1 million sold” mark for global pre-orders, with roughly 30% of those purchases coming from Europe and North America combined. Be mindful that figure does not include streaming numbers which, once added, will skyrocket the quartet’s first-week sales prediction.
In America, excitement for the LP’s arrival has been built on the backs of two Hot 100 top 40 smashes – ‘How You Like That’ and its history-making, Selena Gomez-assisted follow-up, ‘Ice Cream.’
With the recently unveiled video for ‘Lovesick Girls’ (click here to watch) promising to send consumption into overdrive, group members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa have unleashed the songs’ parent album in full.
