Billboard announced on Oct 11 that Blackpink’s first full-length album – titled The Album – hit No. 2 on its Top 200 Album chart, which is its weekly ranking of the most popular albums in the United States.

This means the four-member group has set a new record in the history of K-pop girl group, achieving the highest ranking of any female K-pop group on the Billboard 200.

That’s not all.

Billboard.com stated: "The Album marks the highest-charting album by an all-female group since Danity Kane’s second album Welcome To The Dollhouse debuted at No. 1 on the chart in 2008. Additionally, The Album is the highest-charting debut full-length album by an all-female group since Danity Kane’s self-titled effort opened at No. 1 in 2006."

This news was reported by The Korea Herald, which also noted that Blackpink’s first effort is ranked at No. 2 on Britain’s Official Albums Chart Top 100.

The Album, released on Oct 2, is Blackpink’s first full-length album since the group appeared in the K-pop scene in 2016.

Songs in The Album include Lovesick Girls, Pretty Savage, Ice Cream featuring Selena Gomez and Bet You Wanna, featuring Cardi B.
