After months of anticipation, Blackpink's first studio album The Album is finally here. Featuring hits like "Ice Cream" and "How You Like That," the eight-track release shot to the top of iTunes last night and threw Twitter into a frenzy, where the group's loyal fanbase (a.k.a Blinks) celebrated the comebacks of Rosé, Jennie, Lisa, and Jisoo.
The K-Pop stars opened up about preparation for The Album in their ELLE October cover story. "These days, we have no boundaries when it comes to work," Jennie said. "Even on our days off, we’re basically at the studio recording." Rosé added, "Life is work, and work is life!"
Collaborator Bekuh Boom, who has writing credits on The Album for songs like "You Never Know" and "Crazy Over You," praised Blackpink's versatility and star power. "They represent this unity between women—how all of us can be different but still get along and bring something powerful to the table," she says. "Their music speaks to so many different people from so many different walks of life. I’m just really grateful to be a part of that."
Ahead, the best Twitter reactions to Blackpink's The Album.
just wanna say, jisoo, jennie, rosé, and lisa are so great together as a group. each of the members adds in different colors to the songs, like there’s a reason why they’re this successful, and i personally think it’s because they compliment each other naturally. it’s amazing.— ᴅᴀɴ (@ot4everbp) October 2, 2020

by rhyming "princess/priceless" with "prince not even on my list," jennie delivers a political commentary on the ridiculous societal expectations for women to submit to men, thus denigrating those who blindly adhere to these restrictive social standards. in this essay i will-— ?

BITCH BLACKPINK ATE!!!! First of all, it was different, different vibe but still felt blackpink-ish if that makes sense. It was giving a coming of age feels. Perfect for them scene plays of friends doing fun shit in movies before something happens. It was gooooood!!!— Neko₈ Said⁰⁵ #NCT2020⁷ ❂☽ (@DDDesires44) October 2, 2020
