No other details about the group’s upcoming album was given, but Blackpink’s new music in August will reportedly kick off “a continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year” as a lot of tracks have been prepared featuring the group’s signature style, according to Billboard.

Additionally, the same press release by YG Entertainment also announced that the K-Pop quartet of Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo, and Rosé is also set to mount the “largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group” by the end of this year.

Meanwhile, since the announcement of the K-Pop girl group’s comeback, their fans, also called Blinks, have taken to social media to express their excitement with “BLACKPINK” climbing to the first spot of the Philippines trend list, as of 10 AM on Wednesday.
