On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the full-length comeback album of BLACKPINK was pronounced as one of the longest-charting K-Pop albums in the United States. Though “The Album” fell down to No. 122 from No. 91 this week, the said EP of Jennie, Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo have spent a total of twenty weeks on the Billboard 200 chart already.
