What makes BLACKPINK so popular worldwide?
Although they do not follow the common route of Kpop idols – constant comebacks to maintain popularity, each comeback of BLACKPINK is worth the anticipation. So what helps BLACKPINK achieve such an impact in the industry?
BLACKPINK’s potential is endless, but it seems that it has only been partially explored by YG, because digging deeper there is still much that the public can expect to see from the group. However, all outstanding achievements of the 4 members so far are already enough to prove their irresistible charm.
Here are the 3 key factors that decide the success of BLACKPINK!
1. Trendy and catchy music
YG is an entertainment company that always knows how to create trends with their one of a kind musical identity in the K-pop that is getting mainstream. Without a doubt, BLACKPINK, with a lineup of talented and charismatic girls also got to become the owner of numerous smash hits by YG famous producers, thereby successfully establishing their own brand in the industry.
BLACKPINK’s songs are public friendly and easy to memorize, but also have unique characteristics that can only be found in the YG girl group’s music. The melodies tend to be upbeat, catchy, combined with the fast tempo and addictive beat. The group’s music knows how to perfectly highlight each verse, including both familiar and exciting sounds that keep listeners hooked after just one listen. The lyrics are like a spell, appealing to even the strictest listeners.
YG often draws criticism from BLACKPINK’s fans, but the amount of money and effort poured into each comeback of the girls are undeniable. Last year, with the hit “How You Like That” or “Lovesick Girls” or “Ice Cream”, BLACKPINK broke records left and right, once again confirming their top position among the current 3rd generation girl groups.
Every MV of BLACKPINK is a feast to both the ears and the eyes. Every footage highlights the members’ charms, visuals, and contributes to the soul of the song. The colors BLACKPINK brings through MVs are like a glass of wine, familar but rich and enjoyable to every drop.
Indeed, in today’s era when the public’s taste is gradually becoming stricter, music is no longer merely a transmission through lyrics and melodies. So when it comes to aesthetics, BLACKPINK is tough to beat
Everyone can praise YG’s hitmaker Teddy – the talented producer behind the success of BLACKPINK’s songs. However, it should be acknowledged that perhaps only BLACKPINK can bring out the quality that Teddy wants to convey. Success needs to be viewed from many sides, but above all, the most amazing is the way these factors meet (BLACKPINK, Teddy and YG), to conquer listeners with quality tracks.
2. Leading stars in fashion
Three words to briefly describe what makes the 4 BLACKPINK members able to become the leading fashion trendsetters in Kpop are probably: Beauty – Body – Charm.
The classy and trendy charisma, the ability to pull off every concept are what make BLACKPINK the most sought-after idols by numerous expensive brands. Charming eyes, Kpop 3rd generation’s top visual, being dubbed “physique queen”,… are the factors that easily help BLACKPINK members get selected as the face of many luxury designer brands in the world.
On stage, in MVs, at the airport, on the street, at events, or in ordinary daily life, everything BLACKPINK wears becomes a sensation and starts a trend. Not only leading in music, when it comes to fashion, BLACKPINK is unrivaled among K-Pop idol groups.
BLACKPINK’s impact in the fashion industry is unarguable. The ability to define their own style, great fashion sense, charming auras are what make BLACKPINK members the muses of the global fashion world.
3. A lineup of all-rounders
BLACKPINK seems to be a rare lineup that has all the necessary qualities for an ideal Kpop group: top visual, unique vocal colors, and top-notching singing, dancing and rapping skills.
