BLACKPINK has officially become the first K-pop girl group to enter Billboard's Hot 100 two times.
On October 29, Billboard zeroed in on a glowing accomplishment of BLACKPINK by posting an article with the title 'BLACKPINK Score Second Hot 100 Entry Thanks to 'Kiss and Make Up' With Dua Lipa'.
Billboard stated, "'Kiss and Make Up' is BLACKPINK's second entry on the Hot 100, following the No. 55 peak of 'DDU-DU DDU-DU' in June. BLACKPINK continue to prove their global promise with their latest chart accomplishment."
It continued, "The single―where both artists are credited as lead―debuts at No. 93 on America's main singles chart. The song sold 11,000 downloads and earned seven million on-demand U.S. streams in the week ending Oct. 25, according to Nielsen Music."
Previously on October 23, BLACKPINK decided to expand its playground into the United States by signing with Interscope Records, the world's leading music company.
After BLACKPINK courageously stepped out of its comfort zone and declared that it would embark on a new journey, the expectation towards the group's next move has returned tenfold.
All four members of BLACKPINK are planning on releasing a solo album starting with JENNIE and will provide an opportunity for the public to get a close look at each member.
Meanwhile, JENNIE is planning on releasing her new track 'SOLO' on November 12, and the first stage of her solo track will be revealed at BLACKPINK'S first domestic concert 'BLACKPINK 2018 TOUR 'IN YOUR AREA' SEOUL X BC CARD' on November 10 and 11.
