Blackpink is Making a Comeback with New Music and Their Largest Tour Yet

Blackpink is making a long-awaited comeback with new music and their largest tour yet!

Blackpink is back in your area after their record label YG Entertainment announced the girl group’s latest comeback this Wednesday. Since they are in the “final stages of recording a new album,” new music should be expected in August. 

According to the press release, the band has been working on “a continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year.” YG Entertainment also announced that “Blackpink will also go on the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group by the end of the year to expand their rapport with fans worldwide.”

Blackpink released their first studio album, The Album, in October 2020, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and spending two weeks at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart. Three songs from The Album also landed on the Billboard Hot 100: “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez at No. 13, “How You Like That” at No. 33, and “Lovesick Girls” at No. 59. 

This will be Blackpink’s second tour since their world tour, In Your Area World Tour, from 2018 to 2020. Though no exact dates for their new music or tours have been announced, Blackpink fans have flooded the internet with enthusiasm awaiting the magical music from the artists of Blackpink— Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa.

“CHEERS TO EVERYONE WHO SURVIVED THE HIATUS. BLACKPINK IS COMING!” tweeted one Blackpink fan, @hourpink. 

This amazing announcement comes after Jennie appeared on episode eight of the Korean YouTube channel “The Game Caterers” in March where she teased Blackpink’s return.

“Blackpink is also making a comeback soon. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this, but since I’m the only [Blackpink member] here, I’ll just say it,” she said. “Please look forward to it. Thank you very much.”

Despite their hiatus, Blackpink has been on fire! Just last week, the all-girl K-pop group became the first musical act to reach 75 million subscribers on YouTube, and back in September 2021, Blackpink became the most-subscribed artist on the platform, surpassing the 65.5 million mark and Justin Bieber’s following.  

Many are awaiting any new announcements confirming when Blackpink’s official new music releases will be and when their extensive tour will start.

    Why TikTok’s Chart Influence Hurts Artists

    To preface, I’m usually not one to defend the money-driven institutions that lie at the crux of popular art, whether it be fashion or music. But a worrying trend concerning a certain dancing and lip syncing app (I’m talking TikTok, of course) has made me question whether its unprecedented influence on the music industry is a particularly good thing. Sure, a few obscure artists have been propelled to stardom due to some viral audios, and decades-old hits have made their way back into the cultural consciousness due to the app–-but at what cost, exactly? As TikTok music dominates your feeds and shapes the weekly Billboard charts, it looks as if artists in the industry are paying the highest price.

    Lizzo Plays James Madison’s Crystal Flute at D.C. Concert

    During a break from her setlist of “The Special Tour”, the singer, rapper, and classically trained flutist took a moment onstage to reveal a literal gem loaned to her from the Library of Congress: James Madison’s centuries-old crystal flute. The fourth president of the United States had received the handmade instrument as a gift from France in 1813 in honor of his second inauguration. However, the heirloom had never once been played or heard by anyone’s ears, sitting in silent collection among 1,800 other flutes for over 200 years–until now.

    Sam Smith and Kim Petras Set to Debut New Song “Unholy” on UK Chart

    David Guetta and Bebe Rexha have kept a constant top on the U.K. singles chart with their hit new song “I’m Good (Blue)”, but this single is facing a challenge from Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ “Unholy,” which has powered to no.2 on the midweek chart. The OCC reports that following the 48 hours in the chart week, just a “handful of units” separated the two singles, with “I’m Good (Blue)” still on top of the leaderboard. “Unholy” has taken over Tiktok as well.

    Why are all the Women in the Music Industry Beautiful?

    “You know Ed Sheeran is a good singer because even though he’s ugly he’s still famous.” This direct quote is one of the few specific things I remember being said in middle school. While I am not sure why Ed Sheeran’s talent or appearance was the topic of conversation that day, seven years later the quote has clearly stuck with me. Beyond it being a poignant representation of both a middle schooler’s humor and logic, it remains to be uncharacteristically truthful.
