Today is the day that Blackpink comes back with two more music videos. “Playing with Fire” and “Stay” are the two new music videos today and all I can say is I'm thrilled for these videos. Let's quit talking and start the review.
Holy hell that song was incredible. The music video for “Playing with Fire” kind of reminded me of a mix between “Ring Ding Dong” by SHINee and “Fire” by BTS. There was a lot of fire in this music video as expected. It actually reminded me a lot of older YG videos because of the slow video rendering with the music.
The song though. That song was amazing. I thought it was better than their last two releases which I thought were also phenomenal. The kind of slow-aggressive sound in this track is one that you want to bop to but at the same time, stay in a melancholy state.
“Stay” was a more solemn song and video. The video took place in “heaven”, heaven being “a place where nothing happens”. The girls are running around a street that appears to be abandoned. I'm not sure what the actually concept behind this music video is. It could be that they are dead and living in heaven or that space in between life and death. Either way, the music video was incredible.
The song got me shook. Rose playing that guitar was so beautiful and the way their vocals, especially Rose's vocals fit with the guitar and the song. It's hard for me to pick between these two songs because both were great. Both had emotion and feeling behind them.
