    BLACKPINK at Coachella report from Variety (so it shouldn't be taken down) and a performance of Kill This Love on Inkigayo. Plus an interview with Capital FM in the UK.







    REMINDER: they will be at Coachella again this Friday (US), and I expect they will be live streamed on YouTube again.

    BLACKPINK on the billboard charts.

    "BLACKPINK makes history on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated April 20), as the group's new single "Kill This Love" becomes the highest-charting Hot 100 hit ever by a K-pop girl group.

    The song debuts at No. 41, breaking the record previously held by BLACKPINK's own "DDU-DU DDU-DU," which debuted and peaked at No. 55 in June 2018.

    "Kill This Love" opens with 18.6 million U.S. streams and 7,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music, as it debuts at No. 22 on the Streaming Songs chart and rises 48-39 on Digital Song Sales. The group previously marked a milestone when "DDU-DU DDU-DU" became the first song by a K-pop girl group to appear on Streaming Songs last year.

    "Kill This Love" is from BLACKPINK's new EP of the same name, which debuts at No. 1 on the World Albums chart, earning the group its second leader on the list, after 2018's Square Up. The new release concurrently debuts at No. 24 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart with 19,000 equivalent album units, becoming the highest-charting title by an all-female K-pop group.

    With 9,000 in traditional album sales, Kill This Love launches at No. 10 on the Top Album Sales chart, also the highest placement, and first top 10, for a K-pop girl group."

    Review of BLACKPINK concert at the Forum (P.S. Harry Styles was there)

    "How big are BLACKPINK just now? Big enough that on Wednesday night (April 17)— before the group had even set foot on stage inside the Los Angeles Forum — 15,000 rabid fans launched into a screaming frenzy at the mere sight of the group’s “Kill This Love” video playing on a big screen.

    Such was the level of excitement over the K-pop group’s first North American headline show. Their success has been far from overnight — BLACKPINK has been wrecking Korean charts and building a loyal army of “Blinks” since their 2016 debut single “Boombayah.” But their U.S. profile has spiked rapidly over the last six months, thanks to the “Kiss and Make Up” collaboration with Dua Lipa, a high profile appearance on The Last Show with Stephen Colbert, and a rapturously received Coachella slot last weekend that saw them become the first K-pop girl group to appear at the festival.

    BLACKPINK was quick out of the blocks at the Forum, with rowdy versions of “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and the reggaeton dusted “Forever Young.” They were just as quick connect with their “Blinks,” too. Jisoo, Rosé, Jennie, and Lisa all introduced themselves personally, while an early intermission featured a video montage of their acolytes playing, singing, and dancing along to the group’s hits. In the social media age, fan engagement and participation is the fuel that feeds a true pop phenomenon, and BLACKPINK clearly don’t have any shortage on that front.

    They did flounder slightly during a mid-set solo showcase. As Rosé’s piano medley kicked off with a syrupy cover of The Beatles’ “Let it Be,” a blast of dry ice completely engulfed her and the piano player, creating an unintentionally comic moment that would fit perfectly into K-pop’s equivalent of This is Spinal Tap. Lisa’s interpretive dance performance to Jason Derulo’s “Swalla” was as baffling as it was boring, and Jisoo’s version of Zedd’s “Clarity” felt uncomfortably close to filler.

    Harry Styles keeps a pretty low profile these days, but he re-appeared on April 17 when he attended the BLACKPINK concert at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
