K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK is the cover star of the June 2022 issue of Rolling Stone.
BLACKPINK, composed of Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé, is the third girl group in the history of the magazine to grace its cover. Spice Girls became its cover stars in 1997 and Destiny's Child graced the cover in 2001.
BLACKPINK is also the first Asian girl group to be on the cover of Rolling Stone.
"@blackpinkofficial is Rolling Stone's June cover star. The world's biggest girl group give their most revealing interview yet about how they make music, deal with the demands of stardom, became family, and more," the magazine posted on its social media page on May 23 as it unveiled the girl group's cover.
Rolling Stone revealed that the group is currently working on a new album.
"Right now, the members of @blackpinkofficial are taking every opportunity to rest. A new album on the way will soon send their lives into overdrive. Jennie tells us, 'I think every day, 'OK, how do I prepare myself for my next busy two years?'" the magazine relayed.
The music magazine also shared that the members of the group also talked about "figuring out their paths as individual musicians" in their cover story.
On May 24, Rolling Stone also unveiled the first BLACKPINK digital solo cover featuring Lisa.
"The star talks to us about her big ambitions, her relationship with her mom — and why going solo made her nervous," the music magazine said.
BLACKPINK had their debut under YG Entertainment in 2016.
They are the highest-charting Korean girl group on the Billboard 200 when their 2020 record The Album peaked at the number two spot on the charts. They are also the highest-charting K-Pop girl group as their single "Ice Cream" peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Their hit singles include "Whistle," "Boombayah," "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du," "Kill This Love," and "How You Like That," among others.
