BLACKPINK picks up Teen Choice Awards nomination, enters Billboard's list of bestselling concerts

BLACKPINK continues to rule the world after it picked up a nomination at this year's Teen Choice Awards.

To prove that the Hallyu Wave is alive and strong, Kpop acts dominated the list of this year's Teen Choice Awards which will be held on August 11, All Kpop reported. BLACKPINK's DDU DU DDU DDU was nominated for the Choice Song: Group category while fellow Kpop idols BTS and EXO and NCT17 also vie for honors among teens around the globe.

BLACKPINK's hot streak seems to be earning them the attention of other international artists as British pop group Little Mix recently shared their excitement at the possibility of collaborating with Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rose.

In a recent edition of Answer the Internet, Little Mix members fielded questions from their fans as candidly as possible. On the question on which international act they would like to collaborate with, the British pop group members said that working with BLACKPINK would be amazing, and meeting them would be iconic.

It was earlier reported that The Chainsmokers have also namedropped BLACKPINK as one of the acts they want to collaborate with. The Jonas Brothers, who recently reunited, have also responded that they would want to team up with BLACKPINK's Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rose if there is an opportunity to do so.

Despite the scandals rocking their agency, YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK continues to enjoy the support of BLINKs around the world as they continue with their Your Area World Tour to promote their hit Kill This Love. They are set to take on Bangkok for a three night sold out tour this July.

BLACKPINK also continues to rake in the dough as an international act. According to a report by Billboard, Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rose entered their list of the 50 most bankable concerts with three of their recent concert legs in the US and Europe.

For BLACKPINK's concert in at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, Georgia, the girls brought in $1,518,063 and sold 9,180 out of 9,339 available seats. For their performance in SSE Arena in London, the girls easily took $1,421,480 and sold 9,968 out of 10,074 total seats.

The third concert to make Billboard's list is BLACKPINK's stop at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Compared to the first two venues, it was a smaller arena with 6,121 total seats, but BLACKPINK managed to sell 5,424 tickets with prices ranging from $70 to $178.
