    BLACKPINK have made history with their sophomore album, BORN PINK, by becoming the first all-female group to top the Billboard Top 200 albums chart since 2008.

    BORN PINK moved 102,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release in the US. As a result, BLACKPINK are the first girl group to go No. 1 since Danity Kane did so with their album Welcome to the Dollhouse in April 2008.

    The success of BORN PINK also means that three different South Korean acts have topped Billboard in 2022. BTS and Stray Kids each previously went No. 1 with their albums Proof and Oddinary, respectively.
