Fans were ecstatic over the performance given at Coachella by South Korean girl group formed by YG Entertainment, Blackpink. Not only did they give a thrilling performance when they took the Sahara Stage but made history by being the first K-pop girl group to perform at the festival.

They performed many songs like “Kiss and Make Up” a song where they collaborated with Dua Lipa and their highest charting U.S. single “Ddu Du Ddu Du.” A song many fans were looking forward to seeing live was “Kill This Love.” Blackpink’s song “Kill This Love” recently came out and in twenty-four hours it got 56.7 million views on YouTube, exceeding Ariana Grande’s song “Thank U, Next”.

Blackpink is currently busy with their first ever North American tour with upcoming concerts in Chicago, Atlanta, and elsewhere over the coming weeks.

“When I heard that Blackpink was invited to perform at Coachella I was so proud because I have watched them work hard for so long,” sophomore Jolene Rodriguez said.

“I think Coachella became more diverse this year because they had Blackpink perform,” junior Jennifer Sanchez said.

This is only the beginning for Blackpink, they will continue to make great efforts to achieve bigger things.
