Blackpink’s first online concert “YG PALM STAGE — 2021 BLACKPINK: THE SHOW,” was viewed most in the United States, according to the girl group's agency YG Entertainment on Thursday.  
 
Data from the Jan. 31 concert showed that 19.2 percent of viewers were from the United States, followed by Thailand, the Philippines, Japan, Mexico, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil, Canada and Britain.  
 

“The Show,” which was hosted in partnership with YouTube and livestreamed online, is estimated to have garnered some 280,000 viewers.  
 
“It’s the biggest audience a K-pop girl group has drawn through a single livestream concert,” the agency said.  
 
The number of subscribers to the group’s YouTube channel also saw an uptick, increasing by 2.7 million to reach 56.8 million. The group ranks second out of all global singers and is in hot pursuit of first-ranked Justin Bieber, who has about 60.7 million subscribers.  
 
Meanwhile, members Rosé and Lisa are planning their solo debuts soon. Rosé performed her solo single “Gone” at the concert for the first time.
