Malaysian girl group Dolla denies they're copying BLACKPINK

The Malaysian girl group Dolla has denied claims that they ripped off popular K-pop band Blackpink.

25-year-old member Sabronzo told the Harian Metro that while Dolla does look up to Blackpink for inspiration, any similarities between the two girl groups are just “coincidental.”

Sabronzo said, “I know many people think that we’re copying the performance style of Blackpink. However, any similarities are coincidental. There are not that many Malaysian girl groups and even the most popular ones back in the day were Feminin and Elite. To me, I think Dolla has a unique identity.

The group has received many negative comments when they debuted back in March with "Make You Wanna."

A lot of the criticism was at their lack of originality and for promoting a sexy and sultry image with their music.

Sabronzo said that naysayers are entitled to their opinions and that she and her fellow members remain grateful for the support shown by their fans so far.

"We are staying cool and collected because everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If the comments touch on sensitive topics or foul language, we will just ignore them."

Besides Sabronzo, Dolla consists of members Tabby, Syasya, and Angel.

The quartet has been plagued with accusations of copying Blackpink since their debut; both bands have four members and sport outfits that combine elements of tough streetwear with girly colors and silhouettes.

Member Syasya, 19, has also been said to bear a resemblance to Blackpink’s rapper Lisa due to their similar hairstyles.

Despite the comparisons, the Dolla members hope to carve out an identity for themselves by becoming a "new-generation girl group" in Malaysia.

Their first song "Make You Wanna" touches on themes of female empowerment and the strength of self-confidence, a message that the band aims to put forth once again in their upcoming single "Impikan."
