About Black Pink Member Solo Songs
Good morning. This is YG Entertainment.
YG recently announced the comeback and regular album announcement of Black Pink in June and September.
As a result of monitoring the opinions of many domestic and foreign fans, I think you are curious about the members’ solo song announcements
YG released Jenny’s first solo song’SOLO’ for the first time among members in November 2018, and
since then, for over a year, he has been working hard to prepare for Rose’s solo song.
In the case of Rose, it was
a plan to announce the album form containing a lot of songs rather than a single song from the beginning .
Rose’s solo work has already been completed and
is scheduled to be released after the release of Blackpink’s first regular album in September.
all, we agreed with the members about the fact that Black Pink’s complete comeback and the first regular album release are the most important.
In addition, Lisa’s wonderful solo song is also ready, and she is preparing
a solo song for Jisu.
The members’ solo songs will be released
sequentially after the release of Black Pink’s first regular album in September .
YG is grateful to
many fans at home and abroad who showed a lot of interest and affection to Black Pink .
In addition, we also humbly listen to the opinions of fans like us and always monitor them.
YG will spare no effort and support to make Blackpink grow into a better music and great artist.
That’s because it is the first and most important thing to repay the fans’ support.
Today is June 1st.
We look forward to your
support and encouragement to Black Pink members who are eager to prepare for the end of this month by sweating for comeback this month .
