I was recently wondering, who is the leader? Has YG announced it? :?bunny
Hmm... From what I know, I don't think YG ever announced a leader in BLACKPINK which is kind of surprising since YG groups usually have a designated leader. The topic was mentioned once on a radio show but I forgot the name of it. Either way, the members claimed that they have no leader but I've seen many people call Jennie the leader (probably because she's the face of the group).

So today at work, I heard a very familiar song at work.... :smugbunny
Interesting how they're starting to invade the western world - not something I'd have expected to blast through the store I work at

So they're finally getting a full album after 4 years? But fans have to still wait until August? YG never change... :rofl

Scarcity tactic? That's what everyone says. It seems like they're milking their popularity by having them in advertising campaigns and touring but treat new music as an afterthought. People usually assume the worst with YG since he's a proven piece of shit, but I guess he knows how to profit the most off of his artists while making fans wait forever in order to save money. To make it even funnier, their next boy group is releasing predebut solos even though he ridiculed LOONA for doing the exact same thing, meanwhile no one in BP other than Jennie has released solo material.

I'm starting to think YG only said the other girls are getting solo's too to keep the fans from raging.
Honestly I feel so bad for them - In Somi's new reality show they don't seem very busy (Somi mentions Jisoo pretty much plays animal crossing all day, Lisa makes an appearance to play games/eat food too). The potentiaaal aaaahh

Something positive though:
Here is their collab with Lady Gaga that came out yesterday.

It's doubtful they have pull within the company to do whatever they want, especially since their contracts aren't ending any time soon. But I sort of wonder if fans are in denial of the possibility of them being comfortable with this kind of arrangement. They're famous as fuck, seem to be well off financially, and aren't really mistreated as far as lifestyle goes. It certainly seems like it's less stressful than the average idol's lifestyle.

Seems like most complaints come from fans wanting to see them more often and the assumption that they're being held prisoner and not being allowed to perform as much as they want. It's definitely not ideal for fans or maybe their longevity, but sometimes I sort of wonder.

It's probably a little bit of both. It's probably nice to not be overworked but they only have like 13 original songs despite debuting 4 years ago...

Even when the full group actually features in a new song it's still not even 3 minutes long.... Holy shit :lmao

I mean, this is the millionth time YG is promising releases - I'm not buying it until I see the teasers. And yeah, can imagine lots of fans aren't believing this either.

No I totally agree - Their lifestyle definitely seems a lot better than most idols. It's not like they're lacking anything - I just feel like it's such a waste when you train for years and end up playing video games (or watching Netflix, Jennie once stated that's what she does all day) constantly.

Doesn't help that only Teddy produces their songs I think. I mean, it sounds great but he's only 1 man handling a lot more than just BlackPink's music (though rumor has it they have a lot of unreleased music). Hope they get the chance to write their own music like most other YG artists


Also, now that Sour Candy is out - interested to see if the rumored Ariana Grande collab will also come through haha.

I never really understood that either. The amount of people who would want to work with them has to be high, so I don't get why he has to have his hand in everything. He has other YG artists and his own label he makes music for as well.

Clickbait title. If they're all working on solo material and they're all still in YG, why would Blackpink disband?

I was kind of hoping for a summer comback - these posters seem to hint at something more hardhitting though
(Can’t say thats surprising, I just would love to see something like AIYL, or don’t know what to do)

Yes! It is supposed to be a pre-single for an album that should be coming out later this year

They're supposed to have 2 pre-release singles I think. One this month, one in August, and then the album comes out in September. Though, I don't know which is supposed to be the actual comeback...

So I also heard Rose's solo might be dropping in September as well (she has an actual (mini) album rather than just a single like Jennie, if we should believe YG). I'm doubtful though - would make more sense if Rose debuted after the BP album drop

Anyway, MV teaser:
So far really reminds me of a scene in KTL

Yeah... which is dissapointing. Was really hoping they would try something a liiiiiiitttle bit different.
(I would love something like Whistle, still their style but not so loud)
