YG confirms that Jennie will make her solo debut, rest of BLACKPINK to follow

Follow up to this post

All four members of BLACKPINK will be releasing their own songs!

On October 18, YG Entertainment revealed, “All four members of BLACKPINK will be releasing solo tracks. As a project that is simultaneously happening with [the production of] BLACKPINK’s upcoming track, Jennie will the first member to [make her solo debut].”

The same day, Yang Hyun Suk posted on his Instagram, Jennie’s track will be released first, and following that will be Rosé’s solo track. BLACKPINK’s greatest strength is that all four members’ individual talents are as strong as their bond as a team.”

In theory it's a great idea to give everyone solos especially before concerts/a full group comeback, but is YG really going to follow through with this plan? Having consistent releases isn't really their strength lol

i was thinking this earlier LOL, i bet after rose they will stop

i'm thinking this is like 2ne1 did in their debut year, with bom releasing you and i and dara releasing kiss (there was also please don't go by cl and minzy but that didn't get an official release iirc). however, 2ne1 was actively promoting then and they followed it up with a full album in their second year. this is blackpink's second year and they have only nine songs. it kills me how yg isn't capitalizing on dddd's success. it's one of the best selling songs of the year and their mini album actually sold the most out of all ggs on hanteo. but nah. let's give jennie a solo as if the fanbase isn't already divided.

i'm skeptical on the others getting solos. we'll just have to wait and see i guess. tbh i'm mostly looking forward to jennie and jisoo, if rose's solo will be anything like that cover she posted on ig, why would i even bother listening to her when i can listen to halsey already?

if, and that's a big if, all four tracks actually happen, he'll just slap them on an album with their previous title tracks & a new one and call it BP's first full album next year.

but I'm not convinced the four solos are actually happening lol. Fans were in uproar at Jennie getting a song before another group cb so he conveniently adds that the others will follow...right along with CL's album and those 8 MVs BP was supposed to have in their debut year?

I can see Rose getting a solo, but jisoo and lisa? Those won't ever see the light of day. Yg is just trying to calm the haters

Meanwhile YG is deleting tweets about mino and Lee hi from his instagram 👀

Didn't Lee Hi just tease somethign on her instagram or was my deprived brain playing tricks on me?

LOL sure, glad he saw the backlash
will be patiently waiting for Lisa's solo that will never be released

I’m here for it. Just let them write their own rap verses though.

lol well hopefully i get to hear at least jennie's solo because i doubt he'll get even to second one before 2025

This is a great idea that will not be carried through, and people are gonna be pissed. At best, they'll be released every other year and the last one won't happen because the contract will have ended by then.

Mixed feelings on the part of YG. (This will probably never happen.)
At the same time, BLACKPINK have barely had a career these past 2 years and they're already getting solos? If they had more material, I wouldn't see a problem with it. That also reminds me that CL still hasn't released her US album (which will also probably never see the light of day), Hayi has been begging for an album, Suhyun was supposed to get an album, but hasn't yet, and wasn't YG talking about upcoming solos for Mino and Seungyoon? How has this company not sunk YET? UGH!

but why is jennie getting everything these days though? or is it just me? i know lisa is also doing variety now but... it would've been nice to let rose or jisoo have this
pseudo_shigure 19th-Oct-2018 05:00 am (UTC)

what variety does lisa do?

i like all of them but i feel like jennie and rosé are the only ones who could actually pull off a solo track tbh
