“THE ALBUM” is coming!

Worldwide K-pop sensations BLACKPINK are set to release their debut album, straightforwardly titled, “THE ALBUM,” on Oct. 2.

The quartet posted a teaser poster on their social media pages, revealing the release date and title of the highly anticipated album.

BLACKPINK recently broke numerous streaming world records with the pre-single “How You Like That” which, as of writing, has amassed more than 353 million views on YouTube less than five weeks since its release.

On July 23, the group released a teaser for the second single to be released from the album, hinting at a mystery feature artist, which is believed to be either Ariana Grande or Selena Gomez.

The group was no stranger to working with foreign artists. They collaborated with Lady Gaga on “Sour Candy” released May this year and with Dua Lipa on “Kiss and Make Up” released last 2018. 

The album will be the final part of BLACKPINK’s three-step comeback.
