BLACKPINK is one of the largest K-pop bands in the world, officially debuting in August 2016. The all female group became an internet sensation, amassing an Instagram following of 14M+ and another 17M+ subscribers to their YouTube channel. The release of the music video for “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” generated more than 36 million views within 24 hours, making it the fastest growing video of any Korean artist and the second fastest of any music video of all time. Always looking to connect with fans, Jennie started “Solo Diaries”, a series where the rapper takes her fans behind the scenes and talks about her life on the road. The group teamed up with Dua Lipa to release “Kiss and Make Up” late in 2018, becoming the first K-pop band to break the top 40 on on the UK Singles Chart.
