Singing of heartbreak and lovesickness, the girls have gone through a 180-degree image change from their recent single "Ice Cream with Selena Gomez". With a much darker and edgy image, BLACKPINK perfectly portrayed the "Lovesick Girls" as they sing the pains of love.
In just 12 hours since the release of the music videos, "Lovesick Girls" reached over 38 million views on YouTube as it draws a positive reaction from netizens in Korea.
This is the opposite reaction from their recent single "Ice Cream". Many netizens were disappointed with the song as some stated that "Ice Cream" did not rank too high in the charts of Korea. However, this title track from the girl group's first full album 'The Album' is receiving much love from netizens and fans alike. Many are sharing the music video and praising the song on various online communities.
