BLACKPINK: Celebrate these iconic K-pop girl groups now
Are you a big fan of K-pop? We are too, and just because we love to see women being successful, we’d thought it would be great to celebrate all the most iconic girl groups that are absolutely crushing it in the K-pop industry right now. If you want to do a deeper dive into K-pop, read on to find some great music, and who knows? You may even find your new bias thanks to us.
Of course, there’s no better K-pop girl group to kick off this list than Blackpink themselves, who are without a doubt the most successful & well-known current girl group in K-pop. Even if you’re not a fan of Korean music, we’re sure you’ve probably heard their names somehow someway by now. The iconic girls, Rosé, Jisoo, Jennie, and Lisa, have managed to set records and capture hearts all over the world.
Currently, Blackpink is the highest charting Korean female act on the Billboard Hot 100, and made history by being the first ever Korean girl group to sell over 1 million copies of their album. Their music videos for singles “Kill This Love” & “How You Like That” both set records for highest viewed music videos within the first day of release and “How You Like That” even broke three and set two Guinness World Records. Impressive!
Overall, it’s safe to say if you’re not already a fan of these four stunning & talented girls, then what are you waiting for? All it takes is probably just one music video of theirs, and you’ll soon be hooked by their impressive talents and gorgeous looks. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
This K-pop girl group is definitely a lot bigger than Blackpink, consisting of a whopping twelve members, but we assure you each and every one of them is equally memorable & talented. The group was first introduced by releasing a pre-debut project all the way back in 2016, and each of the twelve members were slowly introduced over a period of eighteen long months, leading to their official debut.
Since then, Loona has achieved tons of success and love from adoring fans from all over the world. Their official debut as a whole group was through the album [++] and even released a full album last year titled [12:00]. Their single “Star” made them the second ever K-pop girl group to enter the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 charts.
If you’re looking for a new K-pop girl group to start listening to, we definitely recommend you give Red Velvet a try. Red Velvet consists of a four member line-up which include the stunning beauties Joy, Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, and Yeri. The style of music that these girls create range from genres such as pop, 90s-style R&B, ballad, and jazz.
Some of their accomplishments include getting the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Award for Best Female Group, winning the Korean Music Awards in 2018 for Best Pop Song for their hit single “Red Flavor”, and even became the second K-pop group to win a Daesang, or a Grand Prize, for every release in a trilogy album by the year 2020.
While not as big as the last two K-pop girl groups we’ve mentioned previously, they’re slowly getting there and making their way up the charts. As of February 2020, Red Velvet was actually the fifth most popular K-pop artist worldwide on Spotify. Give these girls a try and we’re sure you’ll soon be a big fan!
