Jisoo, a member of the popular K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK, has set a new record for a K-pop female soloist with the pre-orders for her first individual single “Me” surpassing 1.24 million copies.
This achievement, announced by the group’s agency YG Entertainment on Tuesday, is a testament to Jisoo‘s immense popularity and the anticipation of fans for her solo debut.
“Me” is scheduled to be released on Friday and has already recorded 510,000 pre-orders just two days after pre-orders began, and 950,000 in just two weeks. YG Entertainment expects this number to rise even further with three more days left before the album’s official release.
The agency also revealed that the demand for the album is not just limited to Korea, but is active in North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, and other parts of the world.
In addition, YG Entertainment has unveiled the tracklist for Jisoo’s upcoming single. The album will consist of two tracks, the lead song “Flower” and “All Eyes on Me.” Fans are already eagerly anticipating the release of these tracks, and it is expected that Jisoo‘s solo debut will be a massive success.
Jisoo’s success is a reflection of the growing popularity of K-pop globally, and the immense talent and hard work of the artists in the industry. K-pop evolved from a small subculture to a worldwide phenomenon with millions of admiring and loving fans.
This success is owed in part to the innovative flair and style of K-pop as well as the commitment and originality of the artists who consistently push the envelope and set records.
