Blackpink fans go gaga over teaser pics of upcoming single, producer Tommy Brown calls the track 'incredible'
With fresh hair and some new outfits, the quartet is already getting Blinks geared up for their epic return
Blackpink is already generating buzz for their upcoming pre-release single, out on June 26, thanks to the release of individual teaser photos for all four members, and their fandom Blinks can barely contain themselves.
The images, released by the group's label YG Entertainment, show's members Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé in fresh hair and muted clothing, each obscuring their faces to varying degrees, allowing fans to do all the guesswork around what kind of concept the girls will be returning with this time. "Hide your faves they're coming for blood," tweeted one fan, "Queens of kpop," shared another, one fan stated, "Literally iconic. I can’t wait to see these girls in the future be recognized as global phenomenons," and one said, "The legend behavior I’m already shaking."
"They look like literal angels..." tweeted one fan, and many echoed the sentiments, sharing that Blackpink looked quite stunning in the teasers, despite not revealing most of their new looks. And Jennie was soon trending worldwide. One fan said, "Okayyy jennie dyed her hair that means this comeback they are NOT PLAYING AROUND," while another shared, "JENNIE GLOBAL IT GIRL" upon noticing the hashtag had made it's way to #1. Some were skeptical of the idol's new hair, tweeting, "JENNIE I WILL BE SO PISSED IF THATS ANOTHER WIG," but others asked their fellow Blinks to be considerate, sharing, "So guys it isnt her first time but it's been a long time since the first so it takes a lot of courage before she did it again as we all know jennie is afraid of dyeing her hair. :))"
Hair talk aside, fans are gearing up for what is sure to be an epic comeback. After all, it follows the record-breaking 'Kill This Love' comeback from 2019, which saw the EP, title song, and music video all shatter expectations and put Blackpink firmly on the global map. One fan tweeted, "YALL AINT READY FOR JUNE 26. WE WILL BREAK THE INTERNET. BYE," to which another responded, "Blackpink world domination yup."
Naturally, some attempted to ignite fan wars, with a stream of 'x ended y' comments taking up space on Twitter, but for the most part, these attempts have been overshadowed by excited Blinks and fancams. Lady Gaga's fandom, the Little Monsters, also showed up to share some love and support for Blackpink thanks to their friendship that was recently further solidified by the Gaga-Blackpink team-up on 'Sour Candy'. Blinks responded to the love with a resounding, "WE LOVE U MONSTERS." One Monster shared, "Yaas monsters are ready to support," and other fandoms jumped in on the party, stating, "Arianators, monsters and blinks assemble."
Fans are also demanding a collaboration between Blackpink and Ariana Grande, tweeting, "WE NEED ARIPINK COLLAB NOW," and this dream team might not be too far away, considering the two acts are working with Tommy Brown for their respective projects. The LA-based multi-platinum producer, who has been busier than ever during quarantine signing new artistes like Drew Boy and Six Months Sober to his Champagne Therapy Label, has been tight-lipped about his contributions to both Grande and Blackpink's upcoming albums, but he did reveal in an interview with Pop Crave News that his team "have some incredible incredible records with both acts." Speaking about Blackpink he added, "I think the world is going to love them."
