Foreign Promotions: BLACKPINK also has a very successful career in Japan. However, I do not cover K-pop groups’ Japanese discographies because I am unfamiliar with them (and the Japanese music industry in general).
“Whistle” and “Boombayah” (August 8)
(1st digital single album)
Although “Boombayah” has proven to be more popular in the long run (at least in terms of music video views), “Whistle” was considered the lead track and won most of the accolades BLACKPINK received that year.
BLACKPINK won their very first music show award for “Whistle” slightly less than two weeks after their debut. They were the fastest girl group to win a music show from debut for a couple of years, until they were passed by IZ*ONE and then ITZY.
“Playing With Fire” and “Stay” (November 1)
(2nd digital single album)
“Playing With Fire” was considered the lead track out of the two.
