The band got popular overnight, and the band members were listed on the ‘Billboard Social 50’.
Jennie, alongside her bandmates, reached a new milestone in their career after the release of their new single, As If It’s Your Last on June 22, 2017, which was listed on top of ‘Billboard’s World Digital Song’ chart. As their performance started getting momentum, there was no stopping BlackPink. The band even decided to make their debut in Japan on August 30, 2017, with their elongated musical play ‘Blackpink.’
