Composed of Jennie, Rosé, Jisoo, and Lisa, the fierce quartet made its debut in 2016 and became one of the biggest musical acts worldwide. BLACKPINK’s celebrating their sixth anniversary today, so we’ve rounded up some of their most iconic music videos to celebrate. Take a look!
~*BLACKPINK in your area*~ The moment we heard those lines, it was crystal clear that BLACKPINK was destined for stardom. This EDM banger showcased the quartet’s charisma and talent in every scene. From Lisa spitting bars to Rosé effortlessly sliding across the floor, Boombayah is that music video you won’t get tired of watching. To top it off, it’s the first-ever K-pop debut music video to reach 1 billion views on YouTube!
The name “BLACKPINK” signifies the group’s savage (black) yet girly (pink) sides. Although “Stay” doesn’t really have a girly theme, it’s still a departure from the foursome’s badass concepts. The music video parades dystopian backdrops washed in pastel shades, accompanied by acoustic beats as the girls beautifully express their vulnerability.
Playing With Fire (2016)
“Playing With Fire” tells a story of BLACKPINK being so in love to the point they’re consumed by their feelings like fire. The music video channels the girls’ emotions without losing an ounce of angst and fearlessness. And yes, some scenes were shot with actual flames on set!
As If It’s Your Last (2017)
This synth-pop summer anthem is probably BLACKPINK’s grooviest music video. The girls are all energetic and stunning, paired with colorful visuals that convey feelings of young love.
