Blackpink is back and it’s been about a day since they’ve made their comeback and they already have over 64 million views on YouTube. I guarantee that breaks any record anywhere thus far. It’s ridiculous how fast they’ve grown. Their comeback title track for their 2nd mini album is called “Kill This Love” and they may not kill my love, but they’ve killed all the Blinks. I haven’t heard any teasers or anything anyone has said, but it must be good if it’s reached this level this quickly.
I don’t know what to make of this video except that it’s a killer and so beautiful. The imagery in this video is exceptional and gives us the vibe that love, while beautiful, can be very toxic and dangerous. I think my favorite part of the video was wet Jisoo. However, every part of this video was eye-catching and colorful.
The song has a unique style to it. It’s very anthemic and in-your-face, but it’s still aligned with Trap style and that genre of music. As expected, Rosé had the change-up in the song, but the build she created was emotional and drastic, adding a huge shift from the militaristic march sound to a tragic swell. At the chorus, I was honestly expecting the drop, but it kept me waiting for it for what seemed like forever.
The change I wasn’t expecting or maybe was expecting was the drumline march at the end, but I was expecting more of a drastic change like many of the other Teddy songs of the past. He is usually pretty good at creating a huge change-up right near the end from the bridge, but this one wasn’t as massive as I was expecting.
What did you think of “Kill This Love”? Is it better or worse than “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du”? Maybe it’s on the same level. Whatever it is, just be sure to let me know what you think. Thank you for the support and I’ll see you in my next review.
