“How You Like That” is billed as the first in a series of releases from Blackpink, which is expected to culminate with the unveiling of their first full-length album in September. 

It was earlier reported that there were plans for them to debut two other songs, to be released between now and the album’s release. 

Blackpink — made up of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa — debuted in 2016, and has since become one of the world's biggest girl groups. 

They are managed by YG Entertainment, the same company that formed K-pop powerhouses Big Bang and 2NE1.
