BLACKPINK is here!! Finally!
YG Entertainment’s first girl group in seven years has finally come to the light! The girl group for which YG has been teasing us with for four years has debuted! I can’t believe it!
On the 8th of August 2016 at 8PM KST, BLACKPINK, a four member girl group composed of Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rose, debuted with two singles, entitled “Boombayah” and “Whistle“. The music videos for both singles were released on BLACKPINK‘s official YouTube channel on the same day and boy… you won’t believe your eyes. Are they truly rookies?
Check out both music videos below and please, don’t forget to support the new girls~
BLACKPINK – “Boombayah”
The song has an EDM beat and starts off with what most of us thought would be the name of a track “BLACKPINK in your area”. Although the music video is super colorful with a lot of pink everywhere, there’s still a dark atmosphere making it look badass. The chorus is really not what I thought it would be, but it’s ok because it’s actually better. It sounds good and it’s super catchy, you’ll definitely start singing it after your first listen. As for the girls, I really have nothing to say except… they are perfect. The rapping and singing is on point, and we can definitely see they have trained for a long time and the dance parts are… AMAZING. They are really talented just like YG had said. You sure won’t be disappointed!
BLACKPINK – “Whistle”
The beat for this song is a lot more heavy; it sounds more hip hop than the previous one. This music video also has a lot of pink, but the girls are making it look black and badass with their charisma and moves. It really looks like what YG had said earlier with the girls showcasing pink, not as a cute color, but something dark and black. The car scene where the girls are all in looking at the camera really looks like the car scene that was in IKON’s MV “Dumb&Dumber”. It’s a really nice scene with nice colors and you get to see closeups of the girls beautiful faces. Both MV’s are really artistic and original, so it’s nice to see something different. The bridge part is amazing and just for this part of the song it’s worth watching! I’ll let you imagine what the rest sounds like **
I really like the fact that none of the girls seemed to be cast aside. They all have a fair amount of lines, which is not given to all groups. They really have a unique and original concept that will surely make them stand out! Please support them as much as you can.
As revealed previously through reports and other sources, the girls will continue to promote and release new songs until the end of the year. Their debut showcase will be on the 14th of August, so make sure to support and maybe give the girls their first win. Who knows? 😉
