"Born Pink" takes its name from the group's upcoming comeback album set for release in September. It is their first full-length release since 2020's "The Album" which included the singles "How You Like That," "Lovesick Girls," and "Ice Cream" featuring Selena Gomez.

Blackpink had already teased their lead single "Pink Venom" on August 8, which coincided with the group's sixth anniversary celebration, before its August 19 release.

The group's record label, YG Entertainment, has called the "Born Pink" world tour as “the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group.” The agency added that it is likely to add more locations to the ones already announced.

Apart from the songs from "The Album," Blackpink is best known for their songs, "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du," "Kill This Love," "Boombayah," "Whistle," and "Forever Young."

The K-pop group recently held their in-game concert "The Virtual" in collaboration with PUBG Mobile, becoming the first Korean act to do so.
