One safe bet this year will mark the peak of K-ten-year pop's climb in the United States: Blackpink's brand-new album "Born Pink."

With their 2019 Coachella performance, Lisa, Rosé, Jennie, and Jisoo created history. Their 2020 debut album, "The Album," peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200,

and they gained fans from pop's A-list, including Taylor Swift, who was seen dancing to their song "Pink Venom" at the VMAs earlier this year. Blackpink fans worry

that the eight-song "Born Pink" could mark the end of an era for the group responsible for some of the genre's all-time greatest songs, including

"Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" and "How You Like That."  Despite the fact that the group has a U.S. arena tour planned for this fall (including two dates at the

Bank of California Stadium on Nov. 19 and Nov. 20), this is not the first time the group has faced such concerns.

1. Is this an end — or the end — for Blackpink?

2. Platinum with no features.

3. A 1800s rock star inspired them.

4. Love him or loathe him, Teddy Park is all over this record.

5. New Wave, still cresting
