South Korean girl-group powerhouse BLACKPINK have shattered records worldwide, from album sales to YouTube views.  They’ve amassed an astounding number of awards since their debut in 2016, and bring a refreshing take to the normally bouncy, oh-so-safe world of K-pop.

With elements of trap music and EDM infused into many of their songs—as well as a healthy and charmingly unexpected dose of hip-hop—the girls have garnered international acclaim.

What’s more, they’ve attracted a legion of fans from all backgrounds, ages, and tastes.

Here’s BLACKPINK’s complete discography, in chronological order, including every album, mixtape, and single the group has released to date.

Facts about Square Two

  • Lyrics in “Playing With Fire” cover the group’s accomplishments in their music career, and their desire to keep going.
  • In the track “STAY,” BLACKPINK discusses their roots—being trainees for YG Entertainment—as well as the toxicity in relationships where you’re too afraid or comfortable to leave, despite knowing you should.
  • All of the BLACKPINK members entered the music industries at a very young age, and thus never had the chance to date as teens. Strange as it sounds, this is a common rule K-pop stars, known as “idols” in the industry, have to follow to maintain a very specific and implicitly pure public image.  Similarly, mixed-gender bands are not allowed.
