Girl group Blackpink has teamed up with YouTube Music to treat fans to an exclusive online concert titled The Show. Simply named "The Album", it features eight tracks, including previous releases like "How You Like That", and "Ice Cream", their collab with American artist Selena Gomez. The band, which debuted in 2016, said they wanted to end the year with something very special for our Blinks, a term for their fans.
The group continued: "We hope everyone can comfortably enjoy our first-ever livestream concert 'The Show" at home and hopefully join in on some special perks we've prepared for those who join our channel'.
Members of Blackpink, Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé, will also go live on its YouTube channel on Thursday at 9 p.m. PT to personally introduce "The Show" to their fans.
Now, BLACKPINK continues to satisfy their global demand digitally, raising curiosity for their differentiated stages unfolding with the shift to an online format.
"The Show is going to be epic...a WOW moment", shares Lyor Cohen, Global Head of Music for YouTube. They claim that they are honored that BLACKPINK chose to partner with them in their first-ever live stream concert. YouTube also makes for a convenient platform for the group as they're the second most-subscribed artist on the streaming platform with nearly 54 million subscribers.
Blackpink are the latest act to jump on the 2020 livestream concert bandwagon as they prepare for "The Show".
