As ‘Bloomberg’ put it, “BLACKPINK is the biggest music act in the world.” BLACKPINK not only generated more than 1 billion views on YouTube in October with their music videos but also became the second most popular act on Spotify. Bloomberg cited BLACKPINK’s ability to speak different languages like English, Thai, Chinese, and Japanese as one reason they are doing so well globally.
