Pre-orders for BLACKPINK Jisoo’s solo album reach 1.24 million, new Kpop female record
BLACKPINK member Jisoo has set a new record for Kpop female solo artists, even before the release of her solo album.
According to YG Entertainment on March 28th, Jisoo‘s first solo album “ME” has surpassed 1.24 million pre-orders in just three weeks (as of March 27th) since the pre-sale began on the 6th. This is the highest number ever for a Kpop female solo artist’s single album.
Previously, “ME” reached 510,000 pre-orders in just two days after the pre-sale started, and surpassed 950,000 copies in two weeks (as of March 20th), already setting a new record in this category.
Regarding such an achievement, YG said, “As the trend is steadily rising, the final tally is expected to increase further”. The company also explains that requests for purchases are active not only in Korea but also in North America, Europe, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia.
Meanwhile, Jisoo is the last member of BLACKPINK to release a solo project. Previously, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa all broke new records in album sales, YouTube views, and global charts as solo artists.
On the other hand, Jisoo will release her first solo album “ME” at 1 p.m (KST) on March 31st. The album includes the title track “FLOWER” and the B-side track “All Eyes On Me”. In addition, the music video was filmed at an overseas location with the largest production budget in BLACKPINK’s history.
About Jisoo’s solo project, YG said, “Jisoo has worked with producers for a long time and carefully selected tracks that showcase her unique musical color,” adding, “Like the album name ‘ME’, you will be able to fully feel Jisoo’s unique charm.”
