Blackpink made history appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone in June and the international pop sensations broke all sorts of records with their Rolling Stone debut.
Rolling Stone’s Instagram had its biggest day in history on May 23 with almost three million people interacting with the posts on our feed. Blackpink photos, meantime, accounted for the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth-most-liked posts in Rolling Stone history on Instagram. The girls also made waves on Twitter, with our Blackpink stories (and individual member cover stories) trending worldwide on Twitter on four separate days.
The entire collection of photos, interviews and bonus content from our Blackpink shoot can now be accessed with our exclusive Collector’s Edition Box Set featuring Blackpink. Even better: Blinks and music fans alike can score a $50 discount on the box set as part of Rolling Stone’s limited-time Black Friday offer.
Regularly $129, get the box set on sale for just $79 on shop.rollingstone.com. This is the only time you’ll be able to get a discount on the box set and quantities are limited so we recommend adding to cart early.
Our June 2022 issue features the four-piece girl group and international pop sensations on the front cover of Rolling Stone, alongside an in-depth article that sees Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé giving one of their most personal and revealing interviews ever.
The new cover is also groundbreaking in more ways than one: not only does it mark the first time Blackpink have been on Rolling Stone’s cover, it’s also the first time any girl group has appeared on the magazine’s cover since Destiny’s Child in 2001. Blackpink are also just the second all-Asian act to appear on our cover, shot by Korean-born fashion photographer, Peter Ash Lee.
As one of the biggest groups in the world, Blackpink have won over millions of fans and critics alike with their infectious anthems, uplifting lyrics and larger-than-life personalities. When it came to featuring the group in Rolling Stone, we knew we had to go just as big, which is why we are excited to present our Collector’s Edition Box Set featuring Blackpink.
Think of this box set as a “bonus cut” of our time with the group, with extended interviews, beautiful photography and original artwork that you won’t find anywhere else.
What’s inside the Rolling Stone box set? The set includes a copy of the June 2022 issue of Rolling Stone featuring Blackpink on the cover plus four individual copies of the same issue with a solo cover of each member.
The box set also includes an exclusive Rolling Stone 44-page zine (pictured above) with alternate group cover and individual interviews with Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé, alongside images you won’t find in the main magazine.
Plus: get four premium 5×7″ Blackpink photo prints shot by photographer Peter Ash Lee exclusively for Rolling Stone, and get a bonus Rolling Stone sticker sheet. Everything comes packaged inside a custom box designed specifically for this release.
While the Blackpink group cover is available on newsstands, the individual covers will only be available as part of the boxed set. Each issue was printed specifically for this special-edition release.
Whether you’re a longtime “Blink” or just a fan of good music, we hope you dive into this special box set and enjoy the stories, photos and memories for years to come.
