BLACKPINK’s new album “BORN PINK” has achieved massive success on Billboard.
On September 25 local time, Billboard revealed that BLACKPINK’s latest studio album “BORN PINK” had debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Album chart, the chart that ranks the most popular albums in the U.S.
BLACKPINK has both broken and set new records with this feat. First, they have become the first EVER female Korean act and female kpop group to top the Billboard 200 chart. Not only that, but they also are the first all-female group from any country to reach No. 1 since 2008 (Danity Kane’s “Welcome to the Dollhouse”).
According to Luminate (formerly MRC Data), “BORN PINK” earned a total of 102,000 equivalent album units during the week ending on September 22. The album’s total score consisted of 75,500 traditional album sales—marking the seventh-biggest U.S. sales week of any album released in 2022—and 25,000 streaming equivalent album (SEA) units, which translates to 37.49 million on-demand audio streams over the course of the week. The album also racked up 1,500 track equivalent album (TEA) units in its first week.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK on their historic achievement!
