[MHN Jung Halim reporter] Blackpink, who have been exceedingly active this year, have been selected as Variety magazine's Hitmaker's group of the year, a first for a K-Pop girl group.

According to agency YG Entertainment on December 4th, Variety named Blackpink as 'Group of the Year' during their 'Hitmakers' livestreamed awards ceremony.

'Hitmakers' is a ceremony dedicated to awarding the year's most popular singer-songwriters, producers, composers, labels, etc.

Variety wrote, "Blackpink broke big in the U.S. this year thanks to a high-profile Netflix documentary, “Light Up the Sky,” directed by Caroline Suh, as well as several successful singles. Their arrival was well-timed. After becoming the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella, the girls took to collaborating with such A-list artists as Lady Gaga — their sweet duet, “Sour Candy,” appears on Gaga’s “Chromatica” album — and Selena Gomez, both label mates at Interscope."

In a video, Blackpink said that it would've been impossible without the fans, and sent their thanks to them.

They said, "Releasing our first full-length album to the world was our proudest moment of this year, " and "Blinks, thank you for loving our music and always being there for us! We love you!"

Blackpink, through releases like their first LP 'The Album', 'How You Like That',  and 'Ice Cream', have been expanding their prescence in the American market. 'The Album' was the first K-Pop girl group album to reach a million albums sold, with 1/4 percent of sales coming from the US.

'The Album' also ranked No. 189 on the "Billboard 200 Albums" chart, which ranks the highest performing records of the year.

Blackpink will be having their first online livestreamed concert on December 27th.
