Earlier this month, BLACKPINK confirmed comeback plans. They revealed that their comeback album is titled Born Pink and dropped a trailer as well. The trailer opened with what appeared to be pink fangs with a drop of poison dropping from them. The drop led to a pink-coloured mist. The trailer ended with the title of the album, Born Pink. The album arrives in September.
The new album comes almost two years after BLACKPINK released its first full-length album titled THE ALBUM. The album featured the title Lovesick Girls. The K-pop group also collaborated with Selena Gomez on one of the tracks, titled Ice Cream. Besides the new album announcement, YG Ent also revealed that the members are scheduled for a world tour.
