Blackpink’s The Album preorder & sales
On September 4, YG Entertainment announced BLACKPINK’s “THE ALBUM” preorder had already over 800,000 stock. 530,000 preorders from domestic, and 270,000 preorders from the United States and Europe.
As soon as the preorder began for the limited edition of “THE ALBUM” LP, it sold-out right away. Moreover, the regular album preorders also exceeded the initial expected amount, so the agency needed to produce more albums.
