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.

Thank you so much 💕

obro

I’m intrigued to know where do Blackpink rank among other k-pop artists, being from the UK I don’t know many k-pop songs but I’ve tried to make myself at least aware of the biggest acts, obviously BTS are by far and away the most successful, but where do acts like EXO, NCT 17 and Twice rank

Aivaras

Well on this list are only two k-pop acts bts and BP
BTs is in the highest place and bp in the 2nd, but from those who are not Included, it’s possible that Exo and BigBang have more CSPC then Blackpink and acts like NCT and Twice stand not far behind Blackpink

Please correct me if I am wrong

matt

#1 BTS
#2 IU
#3 Twice/Exo
#4 Blackpink

It’s just a guess based off label reports, don’t take it to the heart if it’s wrong

Aivaras

of course it’s wrong, you didn’t even include Big bang, Iu don’t have sales, btw Exo has way more digital sales then twice, and twice is don’t have that many as well as there streams are relatively small

Drewwwwww

Twice still has better streaming results than EXO

Aivaras

When we talk about Streaming we are talking about all Streaming platforms

Drewwwwww

Twice still does better

Minhyun

Twice would be below BP because their worldwide charting and sales is non existent. Likely They’d be at 14-15m max.

Drewwwwww

Well, they nevee mentioned that Twice would be above Blackpink anyways…

Minhyun

The user above, Matt, that I responded to, did.

Drewwwwww

Nope.

Athienia

Can you explain , does studio album only phisycal or both of phisical and digital ? Thank you 😊

Athienia

Thank you for the explanation , I got it now 😊

Athienia

Its make me confused at the beginning cz as long as I remember , The Album sales ( physical data on Gaon ) was 1,4M and on this data is 1,8M
Thank you once more time 😊

Drewwwwww

Amazing results especially for a K-pop Act! Can you do TWICE? They’ve been the best selling K-pop Girl Group of all time with 10m sales in just Korea and Japan. I don’t know their CSPC so it’d be nice if you do them too!

Minhyun

Twice would be below BP based on this methodology. They are best selling in physical units, but worldwide they have very low impact and their CSPC wouldn’t be very much higher, about 14-15 million max. They have very low downloads, streams, and views outside of Japan and Korea.

Drewwwwww

Well, Blackpink is accompanied by streaming which is obvious, but they have a very low share in EAS. Twice isn’t the biggest girl group digital wise. But they have physical sales to back them up. Their best selling album is just a mini album above 600,000 sales. I don’t know if they have compilations but seing as their sales are already gigantic for a K-pop act, along with streaming, they’d have a huge score. I doubt they’ll be above BlackPink. I’m just suggesting an idea.

Minhyun

Twice would have a nice score, but it wouldn’t be that much greater than their total physical sales (which is huge), since their streaming is abysmal.

Drewwwwww

As I said, we never even said that TWICE would be above BP. It seems as if you’re a twice anti.

noct1

I havent looked deep into it but I think the difference between Bp and Twice is not that big mainly due to them having like 3x the amount of releases and their biggest hits happening when downloads were still a thing in korea. I suspect both are closer than we think (and snsd too) but Blackpink will eventually have a huge lead over both considering their massive album sales and spotify numbers lately

Drewwwwww

Don’t underestimate their streaming results. They’re one of the best K-pop acts streaming wise.

Drewwwwww

In this website, streams are all combined no matter the country. It’s the overall

Drewwwwww

This website contains overall streams and downloads. It doesn’t separate it country by country

ludaluda

TWICE from debut until 2018, their songs have sold well, with all of their singles from debut to Yes or Yes surpassing more than 2.5m digital downloads in Korea and 100m streams on Gaon

Minhyun

Signal and Merry and Happy didn’t receive either, so that’s not entirely accurate.

Drewwwwww

Signal is 2017

lovesickgirls

We have to add an additional 0 for their singles sales, right? Like HYLT would be 17M.

noct1

Thank you for adding them to your artist list. Just 1 question about digital sales, from what I know their songs forever young & dddd are certified for 2.5m downloads in korea. Are these not being counted anymore because of the chart being streaming based now?

broken

BOTH DDDD AND FOREVER YOUNG ARE PLATINUM IN DOWNLOADS IN SK
CHECK HERE : gaon chart
platinum is given on 2.5m downloads

noct1

I see, thanks for your answer and the article once again, MJD

Once

Please, update twice too!
The last one was back in 2019

Drewwwwww

It was SM not CSPC

blackpink queens

Awais

MOTS7 by BTS

Drewwwwww

Typical toxic armys. Everywhere I go it’s Blinks vs Armys. Are you guys not tired a little bit?

Athienia

Just like you can see , they are like dust , you can find them everywhere anywhere , wth

Drewwwwww

Very true.

Drewwwwww

I’m very certain some of my replies didn’t go through when they were already posted

Athienia

Anyway The Album placed #5 as the biggest album ww in 2020 , as for female they were on #2 under Taytay who is on the 1st place

Jake

She is 7.

Where are you looking?

A.B.
