Blackpink are part of the Next 100 Most Influential People, according to Time Magazine



Blackpink’s star may still be rising in the U.S., but on YouTube, it reigns supreme: the foursome—a.k.a. Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa—has 31 million subscribers, more than any other music group in the world. This year, Blackpink also became the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella, heralding a new era of Korean acts stepping past language barriers to play global stages. Blackpink’s success has been powered in part by a devoted legion of digitally savvy fans—in this case, Blinks—who, among other things, helped its flashy “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” music video reach 1 billion streams. The group’s goal, they say, is to make music that helps listeners gain “confidence and boldness.” —Kat Moon
