BLACKPINK's Jennie makes solo debut in hypnotic, aptly titled 'Solo' MV

BLACKPINK's Jennie has officially become the first member to make their solo debut as a part of YG Entertainment's plan to give each of the four girls a solo release in the coming months.


Jennie released her individual single, entitled "Solo," on November 12 at 6 PM KST. In the new music video, the idol shows off her wide variety of talents - singing, rapping, and even putting on a hip-hop dance performance.

"Solo" was written by YG Entertainment's Teddy, BLACKPINK's usual producer, and composed by both Teddy and 24. The song is a hypnotic hip-hop meets pop anthem, complete with confident and bold lyrics and an addictive melody line.

Meanwhile, Jennie kicked off her solo activities with a special one-hour V Live broadcast entitled 'All About Jennie,' where she counted down to the song's release with fans and gave them a special introduction to her solo concept.

Check out Jennie's full music video for "Solo" above!

Not a fan of the chorus it felt little empty (still a banginggg one)

However the verses + Prechorus + bridge are insanely good!

Overall its a good banger for a debut song,i like it.

I agree. Sunmi is amazing. She's been amazing since day one. But even after going solo, she was able to find her own sound, start her own trend, and use her tools well. Hope we have good Sunmi music for a long time.

I really like the song, but the ending had me sad. I was hoping for a lit bridge, then at least moving near the end to having a complete close. It felt incomplete near the end and I got sad, but it's a good song none the less!

... About the JENNIE "SOLO" MV ...

It *has* (YOUTUBE Channel) the high quality VTT format ENGLISH Language Subtitles.
And it also includes these VTT 'English Subtitles' on NAVER (Channel) too (UNUSUAL).
Mostly, for a YOUTUBE 1theK (Channel) MV ; it has the ENGLISH Subtitles (VTT).
BUT, NAVER 1theK (Channel) does NOT generally have SUBTITLES of any kind (VTT).
YOUTUBE has AUTO-GENERATED Language Subtitles at times ; these are TRASH quality.

... More on the JENNIE "SOLO" MV ...

https://tv.naver.com/v/4502095

On NAVER (Channel) ; choosing HD 720p Video, gives 192 kbps (bit) AAC Audio.
This is WAY BETTER than the YOUTUBE MV streaming for both VIDEO and AUDIO.

I mean, I liked it, it just felt like more of a track off an album than a single. It's just missing that little something that makes it pop. I don't understand why people are being so mean and hating on it. It's not spectacular, but it's not terrible either. The only thing I would complain about is that Jennie's lip syncing always feels off in MVs. Just a little pet peeve of mine, nothing major.

As expected Jennies popularity is going through the roof. Yuri, Hyoyeon and flop Tiffany young should take notes. These three unpopular ones will never be like Taeyeon, any members from BP, IU, Sunmi and more. They should just give up especially Tiffany making the worst mistake in her life joining a western industry and regretting it in the future

jennie herself is great, very graceful and beautiful, but the song.... Teddy is honestly quite a boring profucer, every stuff he make is quite "easy" (just put a badass break and it's okay, his credo) and sound the same, when I knew that the song would be from him, I knew even before listening to it how it will kind of sound... I'm also disappointed that Jennie didn't bring more her own personality through her solo debut, it's just like bp music but done by one out of four. I hope the other three will have other producer than teddy and will be able to showcase more of who they are. Jisoo and Rosé are the one that I wait for the most, Lisa will do a generic dance track I guess, eventhough I would love to be surprised by her.

She's not she's saying "I'm a shining solo" in korean, but that's the point. It's like Bae Bae where Gdragons part sounds like he's using the N-word. YGE (Well... Teddy most likely) likes when lyrics sound like English but are actually innocent korean sentences.
