Pink Venom details
To let you in on a tinge about their new song Pink Venom, the song starts with a soulful voice chanting the K-pop superstars’ names. Then, it will explode into a lively rap. A flashing electronic beat combined with a guitar and Middle Eastern percussion backed the rap part.
Pink Venom features BLACKPINK singing their signature dances with futuristic backdrops. All this while each member has their chance to show off their different styles in every verse. Lisa and Jennie joined for a momentous segment for the second verse. It depicts 90s hip-hop videos.
Lisa mentioned in that verse, “Black paint and ammo, got bodies like Rambo/Rest In Peace, please light up a candle. This is the life of a vandal, masked up and I’m still in Celine/Designer crime or it wouldn’t be me.ooh.”
