The K-pop stars agency, YG Entertainment, said in a press release that Blackpink are in the “final stages of recording a new album.” The new music in August will kick off “a continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year.” In addition, the group promised the new tour will be the “largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group.”
Blackpink– which consists of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa – released their first full-length effort, ‘THE ALBUM’, in October 2020. The album features the singles “How You Like That,” “Ice Cream” and “Lovesick Girls.” The group have not released any new music since ‘THE ALBUM’; however members Rosé and Lisa embarked on their solo careers, releasing their respective debut single albums in March and September.
