Haters Made Edit of BLACKPINK Ads on Spotify To Spread Negative Rumor

BLACKPINK UPDATE – April 7, 2019.

There is news going around on Twitter about haters made edit of BLACKPINK non-skipable ads on Spotify to increase the streaming numbers.

Because of that rumor saying ads can be counted as streaming, some haters accounts started to complain this matter to Spotify Care Official Account

Apparently, that Spotify ads is fake, haters made edit and used the word ‘BlackPink’ instead of BLACKPINK. After the news blows up, hater who made an edit apologized.

Lets start from the beginning:

There was a news posted on Pann, with title, Blackpink’s non-skippable ad on Spotify to increase streaming numbers?

Free users of Spotify get the non-skippable 30-second ad playing Blackpink’s song. It counts as streaming.


Here are summary of comments under that post (translated by kpopfans)

1. [+358, -27] If someone mentions Blackpink, I’ll automatically think that they paid for their results.

2. [+337, -22] I heard it from my friend, so it’s true? I heard that this is how Yang Hyun Suk raises Blackpink’s MV views… What a delinquent.

3. [+320, -31] Hul, so If I listen to BTS, I’m forced to listen to Blackpink, too? ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+163, -2] I’m more surprised that Spotify has a system like this. Listening to unstoppable 30-second ads counts as streaming~ You have to pay if you don’t want to stream other artists… I’m just surprised that they have a promo like this. Of course BTS fans would be upset. They’d stream for their artist but they’re forced to stream other artist, too ㅋㅋ If they implement unstoppable 30-second ads of BTS in Blackpink’s music videos and it counts for BTS’ views, I’m sure you guys will make it a fuss. I know capitalism can’t be avoided but it’s too bad that BTS is being used for this media-play.

5. [+141, -3] I can already tell the headlines after BTS’ comeback. “Blackpink’s rank on US Spotify is the highest for Korean artists, surpassing BTS” ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I’m annoyed already.

6. [+88, -1] This promo is set for K-pop category. When BTS has a comeback next week, BTS fans will have to stream with this ad. Isn’t this the reason why Blackpink rushed their comeback when they don’t even have a proper album yet?

7. [+66, -5] Official by Spotify. They said 30-seconds ads count as streaming.

8. [+56, -1] Why do they keep using these tricks with their American agency? Can they please compete with their talent and fandom instead?
9. [+53, -1] I have nothing against them but I don’t think it’s right to pay for results…
10. [+48, -0] YG’s image is already dirty to the public. If this news get spread, it’ll seriously damage Blackpink. It won’t even be enough if they do things extra carefully, are they totally going for their cheater image now?



So Here is the truth

Because of that rumor saying ads can be counted as streaming, some haters accounts started to complain this matter to Spotify Care Official Account

Apparently, that Spotify ads screenshot is fake, haters made edit and used the word ‘BlackPink’ instead of BLACKPINK, because the actual name of BLACKPINK on Spotify is BLACKPINK not BlackPink


Spotify responds to BLACKPINK’s promotion ads on their application, and the account who uploaded the fake screen capture has already apologized
