The documentary’s release will come just under a fortnight after the release of the group’s highly anticipated debut studio album.
Fans have heard two tracks from the album so far – ‘How You Like That‘ and the Selena Gomez-featuring ‘Ice Cream‘ which was co-written by Ariana Grande and Victoria Monet.
BLACKPINK have had three releases in 2020 thus far, including the two aforementioned singles and featuring on Lady Gaga‘s ‘Sour Candy‘.
The release of ‘How You Like That’ saw the group break multiple records. Most notably, the track’s music video garnered a staggering 86.3million views in the 24 hours following its release, which at the time set the record for most views in a 24 hour period on the platform.
This was later beaten by fellow K-pop superstars BTS, whose ‘Dynamite‘ video earned 101.1million views in 24 hours.
