The K-pop sensation BLACKPINK made history on July 14, 2023, when they became the first Korean girl group to headline the British Summer Time (BST) Hyde Park festival in London. The four-member group, consisting of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa, delivered a stunning performance that captivated the crowd of over 65,000 fans and earned rave reviews from critics.
The group opened their set with their smash hit “How You Like That”, which was followed by a medley of their other popular songs, such as “Kill This Love”, “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du”, “Lovesick Girls” and “Pretty Savage”. They also performed some of their solo tracks, such as Jennie’s “Solo”, Rosé’s “On The Ground” and Lisa’s “Lalisa”. The group also surprised the audience with a cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You”, which they dedicated to their fans, known as Blinks.
The highlight of the night was when the group brought out a special guest: Ed Sheeran. The British singer-songwriter joined BLACKPINK on stage for a collaboration of his song “Shape of You”, which he had previously revealed was inspired by the group. The crowd went wild as the two acts sang and danced together, creating a memorable moment that will go down in BST Hyde Park history.
BLACKPINK expressed their gratitude and excitement for being able to perform at such a prestigious event. They thanked their fans for their support and love, and promised to come back with more music and shows. They also thanked the organizers of BST Hyde Park for inviting them and giving them the opportunity to share their music with a wider audience.
The group closed their set with their latest single, “Butterfly Effect”, which is a catchy and upbeat song that celebrates their journey as artists and as friends. The song also features a rap verse by Lisa in English, which showcases her versatility and charisma. The group waved goodbye to the fans as fireworks lit up the sky, marking the end of an unforgettable night.
BLACKPINK’s performance at BST Hyde Park was not only a historic milestone for them, but also for K-pop as a genre. They proved that they are global superstars who can conquer any stage and any market. They also showed that K-pop is more than just music, but also a cultural phenomenon that transcends borders and languages. BLACKPINK is indeed the revolution.
