BLACKPINK AT 2022 MTV VMAs
YG Entertainment also confirmed that BLACKPINK would be performing at the 2022 MTV VMAs this year which will be held in New Jersey, the USA on August 28th. Starting back in 1987, the awards ceremony is at par with the Grammys, Billboard Music Awards, and American Music Awards.
There have been very few girl groups such as TLC, Spice Girls, and Fifth Harmony who performed on this stage. YG said, “BLACKPINK is the fourth girl group to perform on the stage. Considering the history of VMAs one can see BLACKPINK’s strong global influence and current status.” BLACKPINK won the ‘Song of the Summer’ award for ‘How You Like That’ at MTV VMA two years ago. And this year for the ‘Best Metaverse Performance’ category along with member Lisa’s solo title song ‘LALISA’ which has been nominated for ‘Best K-Pop’.
YG also said, “BLACKPINK is preparing for a special stage that will brighten up this award ceremony.” BLACKPINK will be conducting a live stream for ‘Pink Venom’ which will be released on August 19 on Youtube before the VMAs. Starting at 12 pm KST (8:30 AM IST )on August 19 the group will join the live stream on Youtube.
‘Pink Venom’ is a pre-release song of the 2nd regular album ‘Born Pink’ which will be released on September 16. It is for the first time in a year and 11 months that BLACKPINK will be releasing a full stretch album.
On 15th August, BLACKPINK’s YG Entertainment agency released the complete visual of the 2nd album ‘Born Pink’. All the four members of BLACKPINK without a single shake of their intense eyes looked mesmerising in their dignified figures. The video showed off their charisma, unique visuals, and provocative charm.
With a teaser of 14 to 17 secs in length, the short teaser gives charismatic and beautiful images of ‘Pink’ and ‘Venom’. Through the contrasting and fatal images, the teaser expresses breathtaking tense background music which has been raising the curiosity of the fans. Along with the visual film, individual teasers of every member were being released before this film which took the spot on Youtube making it a trend worldwide confirming the global presence of BLACKPINK. The new song ‘Pink Venom’ will be released on August 19 and is full of BLACKPINK’s intense charisma with a unique deep charm.
Teddy Park, who is in charge of the main production of all songs released since BLACKPINK’s debut, has also participated in writing and composing the lyrics this time. He has been YG’s strongest team producer of all time.
