Blackpink Brought the “Pink Venom” For Their Epic MTV VMAs Performance
Blackpink just notched a personal career milestone when they hit the stage at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards for the first time to perform their new single, “Pink Venom,” which dropped on Aug. 15. “Pink Venom” is the lead single off Blackpink’s upcoming second full-length studio album, “Born Pink,” and it’s already a new fan favourite, having pulled in 190 million views on YouTube since the music video dropped. Their VMAs performance didn’t disappoint, either. The group performed in matching black ensembles and brought their unique sound and choreography to a new level.
The band – which consists of members Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo – took home a Moon Person trophy for best metaverse performance for Blackpink the Virtual. They are also nominated for best group. When it comes to the group of the year contest, Blackpink and BTS knocked out their competition (like Silk Sonic and Imagine Dragons) ahead of the show in multiple rounds of Instagram voting, and fans are waiting with bated breath to find out which group will take home the award.
This year is gearing up to be a huge one for the girls. Apart from their upcoming album, Jisoo’s first K-drama, “Snowdrop,” wrapped in January. Also on the horizon: Jennie is set to make her acting debut in The Weeknd’s HBO show, “The Idol,” later this year.
