Already ahead of Little Mix, with their 17 million equivalent album sales Blackpink are comfortably the biggest female group on the planet right now.

With one fourth of the quartet, Lisa, releasing her first single album next week, expect to keep hearing about the group. In spite of their healthy sales, it feels like they are just getting started.

One of my fav girl groups in Kpop

Eminemfan

Never seen a worse record label than yg , who doesn’t even give them one album every year. They sell albums like boy bands, globally only 2nd to BTS in name recognition. Huge stream stats. Each girl is marketable as hell. They also seem happy with this process tbh. But label is happy with them making coins from deals. At this point they can pull a worldwide arena ( stadiums in asia ) tour and beat all tour records. But their label is sleeping.

Doubt they are happy about it, just slave to their contracts until they can renegotiate. But yes yg are the worst, they got a girl group phenomenon comparable to spice girls back then and doing nothing with it, any label would be milking the hell out of this group

Whenever I try to use this same formula for Twice for weighted physicals and streams, the number is always over 18M. I use available Gaon, Oricon, RIAJ for physicals, and Spotify, Genie, AWA and YouTube for audio and video streams.

Dtew

Their total could be around 15-20m. As a once, 18m seems high. 17m seems accurate

tsaotd

currently they have like 12m pure sales on gaon+oricon alone, have around 10m SEA from youtube, spotify, awa and genie only, and with their physical(japanese) + digital single sales im pretty sure they have at least 24m total units

Gabriel Ramos

Why don’t you add Apple Music & Pandora Streams? why don’t they configure an API like they did in QQ, these platforms have many active users, the difference would be huge in the final result

Gabriel Ramos

How does ‘As If It’s Your Last’ have 1.6B Streams in QQMusic? even adding all the “14 Music Video” I still wouldn’t reach these numbers, how do you have access to the exact amount on the platform?
I’m very confused with the numbers presented.

Gabriel Ramos

There is no boot news on MelOn, can you clarify why platform streams are not counted?
how can you prove that MelOn streams are not valid?

They already explained genie numbers are consistent when extrapolated with gaon, there is no need to add melon. And they are definitely more misleading than genie nowadays, some songs have well over 100m streams there and no gaon certification

Gabriel Ramos

how do you get access to QQ Music Streams?

Gabriel Ramos

Hi, I just wanted to clear a question, when do Global Streams Updates come out? (YouTube, Spotify and QQMusic?) really wanted to see the updated BLACKPINK Streams on QQMusic

Sonique

Hello! I have a question regarding video streams. Do you count guest performances on late night shows like Jimmy Fallon, fancams, choreography, as part of video streams?

Dtew

They do. Not sure about the Jimmy Fallon one. But they also include lyric videos.

Aivaras

they dont count from YT alone they use YouTube music charts
