Jisoo, a member of the K-pop duo Blackpink, made her solo debut on Friday with the publication of her EP, “ME,” in EOUL.
Blackpink made their debut in 2016, and since then, they have grown to be one of the biggest girl groups in the world, breaking milestones like having the most YouTube subscribers of any artist.
The quintet will sing with pop icon Lady Gaga at a state dinner that U.S. President Joe Biden will give for South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol in late April, according to local media this week.
Blackpink’s management company, YG Entertainment, stated that it was considering the offer, but the presidential office refuted the claims on Friday.
“In April, as a group, we have our shows and Coachella. Great things are about to happen.” In an online press conference, Jisoo told the audience.
She stated that her first record was the result of numerous discussions and careful consideration before adding that she wasn’t anxious about making her solo debut.
2018 saw the debut of Blackpink member Jennie’s solo project. In 2021, Rose and Lisa also debuted on their own.
In Seoul in October, the trio began their “Born Pink” world tour, which is expected to go through June.
As of Thursday, 1.31 million copies of Jisoo’s debut album had been pre-ordered, according to YG Entertainment.
The K-pop singers also broke the Guinness World Records for most female band streams on the streaming service Spotify earlier this month.
Guinness World Records said at the time that their tracks had a staggering 8,880,030,049 individual streams, surpassing British pop trio Little Mix. (Reuters)
