BLACKPINK is the first female K-pop group to enter the top of the Billboard 200 chart.

The group’s sophomore studio album, “Born Pink,” debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 albums list for the week of September 22, according to a September 25 report from Billboard. As a result, BLACKPINK becomes the first female K-pop artist and the first all-female group to achieve so since 2008.

According to reports, during the record’s first week of sales, it sold 102,000 equivalent album units, of which 75,500 were album sales. The remaining 25,000 and 1,500 equivalent units were made up of tracks and streaming, respectively.

After their first studio album “THE ALBUM” debuted at Number 2 upon its release in 2020, it is BLACKPINK’s second Top 10 appearance on the music chart.

Blackpink, With "Born Pink," Becomes the First Female K-Pop Act to Top the Billboard 200

Following Stray Kids’ “Oddinary” and BTS’ “Proof,” “Born Pink” is the third South Korean act album to top the weekly albums list in 2022. The only K-pop acts to debut at Number One on the list are BLACKPINK, the two boybands, and the SM Entertainment supergroup SuperM.

In addition, late last week, ‘Born Pink’ became the first album by a K-pop girl group to be ranked number one in the UK.

“Congratulations to BLACKPINK,” stated Martin Talbot, CEO of the Official Charts Company. Being a chart first in any form is an accomplishment that can never be erased, so for their new album BORN PINK to become the first K-pop girl group to have that honor in the UK is a tremendous accomplishment that cements their place in history for all time.
