According to Billboard, "'THE ALBUM' racked up an impressive 110,000 equivalent album units during the week ending on October 8. The album’s total score consisted of 81,000 traditional album sales, 2,000 track equivalent album (TEA) units, and 26,000 streaming equivalent album (SEA) units—which translates to 40.3 million on-demand audio streams in the album’s first week.

This makes BLACKPINK the first female K-pop group to achieve this milestone. Additionally, it becomes the highest-charting album by any female group since Danity Kane topped the charts in 2008 with 'Welcome To The Dollhouse'. Interestingly, BLACKPINK's 'The Album' becomes the highest-charting debut full-length album by a female group in the last 14 years. It was the year 2006 when Danity Kane dropped their first studio album.

Additionally, the song 'Lovesick Girls' has debuted at No. 1 on this week's Global 200 Excl. U.S. chart and takes No. 2 spot on the Global 200 chart.

BLACKPINK is heading to Netflix. On September 9, it was announced that the group will be releasing their documentary on October 14. Proving that music knows no borders or language barriers, BLACKPINK: LIGHT UP THE SKY offers a personal look at the four members of BLACKPINK, from their years as trainees to their current global success as the most popular K-pop girl group of all time.
