He continued to state that YG artists’ solo activities are extremely successful, notably BLACKPINK Lisa’s latest solo album, which exceeded 880,000 copies of physical sales.
In 2021, so far, BLACKPINK has not released any new music as a group. The reason is because the group has been focusing on solo activities of the members: Rosé released the debut single album ‘R’ in March, then Lisa made her solo debut with the single album ‘LALISA’ in September.
If the news of BLACKPINK’s comeback comes true, this will be their first comeback in a year since the release of their 1st full album ‘The Album’ with the title track ‘Lovesick Girls’ in early October 2020. Many fans and netizens have been looking forward to the comeback of the 4 YG girls because they don’t want 2021 to end without any BLACKPINK’s promotions as a complete group. After this news was published, the keyword ‘BLACKPINK COMEBACK’ also started trending on Twitter.

In this case, it is likely that YG has filled out plans for BLACKPINK’s comeback in the 4th quarter of 2021, so the group’s fans are extremely excited. However, many netizens still remain suspicious because YG having plans is one thing, but whether they can do it on schedule or not is another.
Currently, YG Entertainment has not confirmed whether BLACKPINK will make a comeback before 2021 ends or not.
