That being said, is BLACKPINK coming to the Philippines? The superstars have been in Manila in 2019, but Filipino netizens are hoping to see them again this year after Philippine Concerts posted the group’s comeback announcement on their Facebook page. Nevertheless, the list of countries is yet to be confirmed.

Their last release was in October 2020 with their first studio-length album called “THE ALBUM”. It includes their multi-award-winning track “How You Like That” and their special collaboration song “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez.

In 2021, members Rosé and Lisa released individual albums titled “R” and “LALISA” respectively.

Meanwhile, their 2018 track “DDU-DU DDU-DU” from the album “Blackpink in Your Area” now has 1.9 billion views on Youtube.
