SEOUL, July 25 (Yonhap) -- K-pop girl band BLACKPINK will release a Japanese-language version of its latest hit song "DDU-DU DDU-DU" next month, its management agency said Wednesday.

"BLACKPINK's first EP 'Square Up' topped the iTunes album chart in Japan. ... On back of the popularity, (we) plan to release a record in Japan on Aug. 22, which includes a Japanese language version of the main song 'DDU-DU DDU-DU,'" YG Entertainment said.

The latest BLACKPINK album, released June 15, made history for K-pop female acts by climbing as high as 40th place on the Billboard chart of the 200 most popular albums. Its main track also peaked at 55th place on the highly competitive Billboard "Hot 100" song chart.
