  1. I’ve been hammering Born Pink all week and I gotta say that it is really enjoyable.

    Pink Venom and Shut Down has grown on me so much I find myself humming it at times - stone cold bops. Yeah Yeah Yeah is a cute bop. Hard to Love sounds refreshing and leaves me wanting for an OT4 version.

    Happiest Girl really displayed their vocals well and made me emotional. I would have found a song like Tally crude and unlistenable but somehow they made it likable, and finally Ready for Love also sounds good in the context of the album and the bareness somehow works. I’m sure Typa Girl will creep up soon.
     
  2. This album is weird for me, like I really can't say Its one of my favourite albums and I honestly don't think its a strong collection of songs, but I've also had it on non stop.

    Its an easy listen I guess...

    Pink Venom is a strong lead single and I do enjoy Shutdown too. I'm enjoying Hard to Love, Tally, and Yeah Yeah Yeah. Typa Girl is a cute moment but nothing special, and Happiness is just a no for me, I always skip it. It's a nice ballad but the girls just don't give any emotion and sing it in such a 'pretty' way, Its hard to explain but its not flat for me. Ready to Love is awful.

    Overall its a cheap basic project In my opinon, but there is something captivating about Blackpink that makes me want more from them. I'm not going to the tour and I'm honestly a bit sad about it, but I seen them once and again I thought the show was cheap in production and although the girls are talented the prices for London are just too expensive.

  3. What is it with them doing barely any promo? I swear this happened last time as well.

    Exactly how I feel. The album is not fresh nor very good, but it’s an easy listen. Constant repeat for me too.

  5. Why bust your ass when people who will buy it will buy it anyway?

  6. I would have thought they would have at least a few more promo spots in the US. Korean music shows don’t really matter for them at this point I mean.

  8. They didn't do Jimmy Fallon which is a show they always did in the past, not even Good Morning America...
     
  9. That’s what I mean. I get they don’t need it because people will buy their music regardless but you’d think for a group like them that’s that big they would be everywhere but I guess that’s just YG for you.

  10. The way they treated the album release like an afterthought after Pink Venom. Less than bare minimum promo, formulaic social media content, zero posts related to the TWO #1's on the US and UK charts. It's upsetting.

    I get not much promo is not great for the fans as there’s less content, but why is it such a big deal that they didn’t mention their number 1s? It’s so whatever, most of their sales are not even in those territories.

    They should’ve prerecorded some special performances though, or dance practices.

    Why is it so hard for y’all to admit you like their music JAHSHDJDJDDJDJDJDJ! It’s ok to enjoy basic bops, girlies!! Not every song/album needs to revolutionize the music industry or whatever!!

    I think I like the girls more if that makes sense? They elevate the songs.

    Definitely not expecting revolutionary songs, it’s just they hadn’t been this basic before.

    It’s fine either way. Stans can stan and casuals can keep it on repeat, YG and the girls keep winning!

    I just think it’s probably so exhausting to go through so many mental hoops to justify why you listen to a song. You like the songs that’s why you listen to them, why is that not enough of a reason? Why is that so hard to admit? I don’t get it.

    Liking something while questioning its quality is perfectly common. Also, people are different?

    Not posting here further, though.

    So you admit you like the songs? That’s literally all I was asking.……. No need to do all of that.

    Anyway, I’m also done with this. Let’s just bop along to these basic bops!!

    I mean, they said they like the songs but are also critical of their quality. I think it's fair to enjoy something while also being able to be vocally constructive. Two things can be true at once.

  20. Now they need to double her lines.


    Do we know how much girls earn from those deals with different brands?
