2019 has been quite the year for BLACKPINK! Since the year is coming to an end, we at TheHoneyPop decided to compile BLACKPINK’s best moments throughout 2019.
Coachella was definitely a HUGE moment for BLACKPINK’s career. They were the first K-POP girl group ever to perform at the festival. I wish I was there to witness their iconic performance! Their stage presence was on point.
2. DDU-DU DDU-DU Hits 1B Views
D4 is one of BLACKPINK’s most successful songs as of now and has gotten the girls much recognition around the world. Just recently, the music video has hit 1B views on YouTube! The video has also become the most liked MV by a girl group on YouTube, surpassing D4! Click here to read more about it!
3. BLACKPINK’s World Tour
The group was touring all around the world with their World Tour ‘In Your Area’ this year. They visited many countries (e.g Germany) for the first time ever and managed to show the world what they’ve got.
4. KILL THIS LOVE Comeback
BLACKPINK dropped their EP ‘Kill This Love’ this year which was another huge success! The EP includes 5 songs, one of them being a remix of ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’. Besides the title track ‘Kill This Love’, the songs ‘Don’t Know What To Do’, ‘Kick It’ and ballad ‘Hope Not’ are also a part of the tracklist.
5. FOREVER YOUNG goes Platinum
Even though ‘Forever Young’ wasn’t a single, it managed to become the first non-single to ever get a Platinum Download Certification on Gaon since their certification system started!
6. SPOTIFY ACHIEVEMENTS
Spotify is one of the most used streaming services at the moment, which means that it is kind of mirroring an artist’s popularity. Well, BLACKPINK are the Highest Peaking Girl Group on Spotify and were the most streamed Girl Group in 2019. They were the first KPOP girl group to hit 2B streams and managed to garner 1.2B of those streams in 2019!! I’d say that this is quite the achievement considering just how many people are using Spotify daily.
7. BILLBOARD CHARTING
Billboard Charts are a HUGE deal for artists, so if a song or album is charting well on a Billboard Chart, you know you’ve made it – and BLACKPINK sure did! In 3019, their Billboard achievements were both ‘Highest Peaking Song by a K-POP girl group on Billboard Hot 100’ as well as ‘Highest Peaking Album by a K-POP girl group on Billboard 200’.
Those were just a few achievements and it was SO hard to pick just 7! I cannot wait to see what the new decade has in store for our girls! Did we miss a moment you think made our girls shine bright? Let us know in the comments, or tweet us over @TheHoneyPOP!
