BLACKPINK’s Pink Venom Makes A Surprise Appearance At Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

Taylor Swift seems to have become a big fan of BLACKPINK’s Pink Venom. The song, which was released as a pre-release single for their second studio album Born Pink in August last year, has been making waves around the world with its catchy melody and fierce lyrics. The song debuted at number one on the Billboard Global 200 chart with 212.1 million streams and 36,000 downloads sold, earning BLACKPINK’s first number-one on the chart and the second-biggest worldwide weekly streaming total in the chart’s history.

BLACKPINK also performed Pink Venom at the MTV VMAs last year, where Taylor Swift was also present. Just hours before the event, Taylor posted a TikTok video with Pink Venom as the background music, showcasing her outfit for the night. Later on, she was seen dancing and singing along to the Korean track as BLACKPINK delivered an electrifying performance on stage.

Taylor Swift started her Eras tour today, which is a celebration of her re-recorded albums that span across different genres and styles. While fans were in the arena waiting for her to come on stage, they were greeted with a pleasant surprise: BLACKPINK’s Pink Venom started to play in the background. Fans were seen enjoying the song and several took to Twitter to share videos from the concert venue.

BLACKPINK, the global phenomenon girl group from South Korea, once again proved their dominance and influence with their single “Pink Venom”. The song, which was released on August 19, 2022 as a pre-release track for their second studio album “Born Pink”, smashed numerous records and topped charts worldwide. The music video for “Pink Venom” received a staggering 90.4 million views on YouTube within 24 hours of its release, surpassing their previous record of 83.8 million views with “How You Like That” in 2020. The video also became the fastest music video by any female artist in YouTube history to hit 100 million views, achieving this feat in just over 29 hours.

“Pink Venom” debuted at number one on Australia’s ARIA Singles Chart on August 28, 2022, making BLACKPINK the first K-pop group and the second Korean act overall (after Psy) to achieve this milestone. The song also became their first number-one hit in New Zealand’s Official Top 40 Singles Chart, as well as their highest-charting single in both countries.

On September 4, 2022, Billboard announced that “Pink Venom” had topped its Global 200 chart for two consecutive weeks, becoming the first song by a girl group to do so since its inception in September 2020. The chart ranks songs based on streaming and sales data from more than 200 territories around the world. According to Billboard , “Pink Venom” drew 108.8 million streams and sold 36,000 downloads globally in its second week of tracking (August 20-26).

In addition to topping charts in Australia and New Zealand, “Pink Venom” also reached the top ten in several other countries across Asia and Europe. The song peaked at number two on Japan’s Oricon Digital Singles Chart and number three on Japan Hot 100 chart, becoming their highest-charting single in Japan.

Fans have been waiting for a Taylor Swift and BLACKPINK collab for years. Whether or not Taylor Swift and BLACKPINK will ever collaborate or perform together remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: they both have mutual respect and admiration for each other’s music. And their fans are loving it too.
