Blackpink are K-Pop hotties making history and taking over the charts

Blackpink are one of the most successful girl groups in the world right now and are breaking records left, right and centre.

Jisoo, 24, Rose, 22, Jennie, 23, and Lisa, 22, from Thailand, New Zealand and South Korea are taking over the charts and have made their way over to the UK.

Thanks to their millions of fans worldwide they've racked up an staggering six billion views on YouTube . Their track Boombayah also has more than 600million views alone.

They recently broke a record when their latest single Kill My Love received an impressive 56.7m views in its first day of release – which was only recently beaten by fellow K-Pop stars BTS (78m) and Taylor Swift (65.2m).

The stunning foursome also made history as the first K-Pop group to perform at Coachella.

Blackpink met eight years ago as K-pop 'trainess' in South Korea and recently performed for the first time at Wembley stadium – selling out all 12,500 tickets.

The girlband's captivating synth pop beats have become hugely popular in the UK, with K-pop becoming a thing of the future and Brit pop appearing to slowly fade in the background.

The girls were formed through a tough audition process and hit the charts back in 2016 with every one of their singles hitting the top three.


Their worldwide fans are known as 'BLINKS' and often attend their concerts in get-ups just like the girls wear.

Blackpink have said how much they love it when their fans sing their hearts out in Korean along to their songs.

They've got plenty of celebrity fans including Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix, Ariana Grande , Drake, Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner.

Dua Lipa even reached out to the girls to record a duet with them for her self-titled album. Their collaboration Kiss and Make Up has more than 200million streams on Spotify.

The girls also revealed that when they were at the K-Pop academy before they formed, they even met Will Smith.

He went on to meet them again as they performed at Coachella after Jaden Smith, but they joked to the BBC that they don't think he remembered them.

"That was really fun. We were really starstruck and was like 'what!'"

"The funny thing, we saw him when we were trainees. He came by the company in Korea actually, we actually had a chance to say hi but I don't think he noticed that it's all us!"
