So, on October 2nd, 2020, “The Album” was published, becoming the first girl group album to sell a million copies. People pegged it on the fact that they had 4 years to accumulate money to obtain such big sales. When The Full Album was revealed a few months ago, Chinese bars began putting money aside.
Blackpink had an internet performance four months later and sold 280,000 tickets (cost is 30 dollars).
In March of 2021, Rosé launched her solo album, which sold 600,000 copies and became the best-selling female record in Korea, second only to her own group.
I recall people still claiming that they had years to save up for her single album. But I thought Blinks was putting money aside for the album? Which one is it?
Then 5 months later blinks held a Movie concert. It sold over 500,000 tickets in just a few days, making it the highest-grossing movie of 2021.
Around a month later, Lisa receives 700,000 pre-orders in four days and is set to become Korea's first female solo million seller on August 30, 2021 with no break and only a few months between albums.
so its proven that BP album sales have nothing to do with hiatuses
