SEOUL -- BLACKPINK will treat fans with a new album in March, about nine months after the girl band released its global hit, "DDU DU DDU DU", according to the quartet's agency.

YG Entertainment head Yang Hyun-seok said Friday in a post uploaded onto the company's blog that he was well aware of complaints among fans that BLACKPINK has released a relatively small number of songs. What is more important is to release good quality songs and music videos, he said.

Yang hinted at BLACKPINK member Rose's solo debut. "We expect Rose's solo song to be unveiled after the release of the group's new album," he said, adding BLACKPINK would come back twice this year while Rose, Lisa and Jisoo will debut solo one by one. Jennie has released her first solo single "SOLO" last year.
