"BLACKPINK PAVED THE WAY" trends worldwide after Forbes' recent report on the group's impact on the music industry.

On August 17, Forbes published a report on BLACKPINK after the news of the end of the successful "BORN PINK" tour in September.

In particular they mentioned: "With each passing year, Blackpink's status within the music industry grows. They were already a global sensation and recent endeavors have catapulted them even further into the spotlight. All four members have embarked on successful solo careers with each demonstrating their musical talents and distinct artistry. All the attention paid to each single and collection they dropped only further helped cement Blackpink itself as a powerhouse name in the industry".

Forbes went on to congratulate BLACKPINK and praise their contribution to the music industry and Kpop with the following: "Blackpink's impact on today’s global music business cannot be overstated. They were trailblazers who introduced K-pop to a worldwide audience before many of their contemporaries. The group's earlier successes in the United States have paved the way for subsequent K-pop acts to gain traction on Western charts and there are now many succeeding who follow in their wake.

Over the years, the Western world has grown more receptive to K-pop and an increasing number of South Korean musical acts are making their names known and earning top chart placements. As audiences become more attuned to the genre's unique sound and cultural nuances, language barriers have become less of a hindrance thanks Blackpink's legacy includes shaping a musical landscape that now offers them a more lucrative and welcoming environment".

After the news, "BLACKPINK PAVED THE WAY" quickly became a Worldwide trend, where many netizens agree with Forbes' words, since today the group's impact over the years is indisputable.

I think it's rather embarrassing to say that they paved the way when they're so mediocre to begin with, it's just not a good look for K-pop in general. There are so many better groups out there
