The nonprofit organization Gold House annually announces its list of 100 Most Impactful Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (APIs) of the year, and BLACKPINK has joined this year’s list!
The organization aims to elevate underrepresented voices and their cultural impact on society.
On their website, Gold House lists all of the group’s stand-out achievements from the past year, from being the only K-pop girl group to enter and top Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart and the first female K-pop group to have four number-one singles on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart.
Blackpink continues to shatter records with their music video views, streams, and fan engagement. They remain to be the number one most subscribed YouTube channel.
