BLACKPINK’s Net Worth Explains Why They’re TIME’s Entertainer of the Year—How Much Each Member Makes




If you don’t know who BLACKPINK is, open a new tab and watch the music video for “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” immediately. When you’re done, return to this article. Congratulations, you’re a BLINK. BLACKPINK’s net worth is no joke. As one of the most popular girl groups in the world, Jennie, Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo have more money than you and I. Times a thousand. But how rich are the members of BLACKPINK? And are Jennie, Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo paid the same? Let us investigate!

BLACKPINK debuted in 2016 with their first single, “Boombayah.” Since then, YG Entertainment’s four-member girl group has become one of the most well-known bands in K-pop—not to mention the world. In 2019, they became the first K-pop act to perform at Coachella. They’ve also released music with Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and Cardi B.  So, yeah, if you aren’t on the BLACKPINK train yet, you better hop on. They released their first studio album The Album in 2020 to high acclaim with songs like “How You Like That” and “Crazy Over You.” This year, they released their second studio album, Born Pink, featuring their long-awaited comeback singles “Shut Down” and “Pink Venom.”

That number, however, is likely a little lower based on the cut that BLACKPINK’s management company, YG Entertainment, takes out of the band’s profits. Along with BLACKPINK’s music and performances, Jennie has also been a brand ambᴀssador for Chanel, as well as for the beauty brand, Hera, and collaborated with sunglᴀsses brand Gentle Monster. The singer and rapper dropped her single, “Solo,” in 2018.
