After reports of a June comeback have surfaced earlier this month, YG Entertainment finally dropped an update on the hint when BLACKPINK‘s first official album will be released in September.
According to their entertainment label, BLACKPINK has finally completed over 10 tracks of new songs, which will compose the group’s first full album since their debut.
The quartet is currently almost done on preparing for visual shooting and choreography practice. The group will first release the album’s pre-release track in June, signalling their return, and then follow-up with another single on a special format in either July or August.
YG Entertainment revealed then that they are planning to release BLACKPINK’s full album in September.
They are experimenting with a new strategy to release contents in three different terms so that the group will get opportunities to visit the fans with richer contents and performances.
This came after YG Entertainment being bombarded with requests from fans to promote BLACKPINK more actively. Fans have previously mobilised trucks to be stationed outside the entertainment label’s headquarters in the city’s Mapo District, for the second time within six months to have their voices heard.
In other news,hints were droppedthat a Lady Gaga and BLACKPINK’s collab “Sour Candy” is set to be released on 29 May.
