Following the release of “BORN PINK,” the group embarked on their Born Pink World Tour, which commenced in Seoul in October 2022. This world tour has been nothing short of a phenomenon, boasting sold-out venues and becoming the highest-grossing concert tour by a female group since the Spice Girls.
The group is set to conclude their tour with two final encore concerts in Seoul in September 2023, wrapping up a record-breaking journey. In addition to their album achievements, BLACKPINK also expanded their musical reach by releasing a new single titled “The Girls.” This single is part of the soundtrack for their mobile game, “BLACKPINK: THE GAME,” further showcasing the group’s versatility and creativity in the world of entertainment.
