Blackpink 'Shut Down': Fans hail girls dissing their trolls in lead single from 'Born Pink'
Blackpink dropped the music video of 'Shut Down', the lead single from their second full-length album 'Born Pink' that created a frenzy in Blinks' minds
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: The most anticipated girl group from K-pop has finally made a comeback. After almost two whole years, Blackpink has released a full-length album titled 'Born Pink' with its lead single 'Shut Down'. The single was released on September 16, 2022, and has already racked up 16 million plus views and 2 million likes in the last four hours. The girl group initially released the single 'Pink Venom' as a pre-release to the album and now has finally made a comeback with the entire album. Blackpink's 'Born Pink' consists of eight tracks in total.
Aside from the lead singles, 'Pink Venom' and 'Shut Down', the album also features Blackpink's PUBG collaborative single 'Ready For Love' which was released ahead of their sixth-anniversary celebration. The album features five other tracks, 'The Happiest Girl', 'Typa Girl', 'Hard To Love', 'Tally', and 'Yeah Yeah Yeah' all of which have taken over the minds of fans. However, fans are extremely happy about the lead single 'Shut Down' as the track is proving to be a diss track for the trolls that badmouthed the girl group over their long break.
Blackpink shuts down their trolls with 'Shut Down'
The lead single received a lot of mixed reactions before its release due to the concept photos that YG Entertainment released for Blackpink's 'Shut Down'. However, it seems that the music video has compensated for the hate it received. Over the last two years, Blackpink's absence from the K-pop scene has been taken as their weakness which is why the single 'Shut Down' is the four members's -- Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rose -- clap back at their haters.
Jennie opened the single with her blunt statement saying this is not a comeback because the girls did not go anywhere as a diss to trolls who compared Blackpink's hiatus to a military enlistment term. The music video has iconic references from Blackpink's old songs like 'Ddu Du Ddu Du' and 'Whistle' that take fans down memory lane as the girls diss their trolls by spitting fire and shutting their mockery of them down with 'Shut Down'.
