K-pop quartet BLACKPINK have shared a music video for their new single ‘Kill This Love’ off their forthcoming EP out tomorrow 5 April.
Members Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo, and Rosé star in this splashy video, directed by Hyun Seung Seo. In true K-pop fashion, the high-concept visual features the girls in different scenarios, from speeding along in a car, to a candy-coloured cereal aisle and dancing inside a giant steal trap.
The dramatic visual pairs perfectly with this high-energy break-up anthem as the girls sing, “We must kill this love / Yeah, it’s sad but true / Gotta kill this love / Before it kills you too”.
The anthemic pop single features the best of all the group’s strengths, from Lisa’s rap verses to Rose’s soaring vocals. With slick hip-hop beats and dramatic bass drop, ‘Kill This Love’ offers an exciting taste of what’s the come on the EP of the same name.
Earlier this week, the band unveiled the EP’s track-list, which features five tracks including ‘Kill This Love’ along with their previous hits ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ and ‘Don’t Know What to Do’.
Following in BTS’ footsteps, the girl group is poised to take over America. With two previous hits on the Billboard Hot 100, their global appeal continues to grow as the group prepares to play Coachella later this month, becoming the first K-pop group to play the festival.
BLACKPINK also heads out on a massive global tour that includes dates in Australia, Europe and North America.
