See you Soon BangTan!

By : Shanise Lachelle

It was just announced today during Bts 9 year festa dinner that they would be taking an Hiatus and focusing on solo work.

At first being hit with that news while at work I panicked and started to cry. I’ve only had Bts for two years and it doesn’t seem long enough. And every group that’s ever said they were taking a break , never come back. Look at One Direction.

But after watching the clips and watching each member express gratitude and tell army they just want a break and a chance to figure out who they are outside of Bts. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for them. They’ve been going nonstop for 9 years, of course they’re tired and want to experience solo adventures within their career and it’s only right army gives them the chance to do so.

I’m so excited for 7 solo albums and to see them really express themselves individually. But super sad as well to see BTS go on break.

I hope they rest well and do whatever their heart desires!!

Army will forever STAND BEHIND BTS.

Good Boy Gone Great.

By :Shanise Lachelle

Txt has almost been into their “ Bad Boy Era” for a month now and what a Era it’s been.

I must honestly admit, when I saw this was the route that hybe and TXT were going I wasn’t too sure about it. It wasn’t a complete shock coming from loser =lover era, but still didn’t expert they’d go this dark.

The first video from Thursdays Child is Good Boy Gone Bad. Keeping up with their tradition of having super long single titles, the song itself is a smash it. The video only brings it all together and makes it even more amazing.

I love the edgy/ bad boy TXT!! They’re growing up and trying to show Moa they are more than the adorable cat-dog group. They’re becoming Men and you totally see it in Good Boy Gone Bad.

Everyone shines in the video but I definitely think this era Belongs to beomgyu and soobin. Not to discredit the other boys, because they’re definitely stronger as a five piece.

This video was everything and more, and they looked so gorgeous. Not to mention the choreography has started a new TikTok trend! every live performance makes me love the song even more. Txt definitely made their mark with this comeback and we’re just getting started!

What do you think of Good Boy Gone Bad?! Let me know in the comments down below and as always…. Until next time friends.

Recent Horror

By: Shanise Lachelle

Spooky Season is finally upon us and with that comes new horror films. Let’s talk about the recent horror films I’ve seen lately.

Orphan First Kill

To start off this was a decent prequel and I fully enjoyed it. Even the little twist, read a few spoilers . But nothing could prepare me with how it was fleshed out. Cons: The actress is obviously an adult now and you can tell. But the movie production did its best with trying to trick us into believing she was still that little adult like child. It just didn’t read well every time. 4/5

Countdown

This was a film that was picked randomly off of Netflix one day and I’m glad it was picked. I went in not having high hopes but was pleasantly surprised, the film ended up being a lot better than I thought. The ending was a little weak and I didn’t care much about the characters. But the acting was decent and I enjoyed the premise of knowing when you’re going to die. Even thought i personally would have hated it. 3/5

Barbarian

Without giving any thing away, immediately go see this film. It’s definitely not what you think it is, and I loved the way the story was played out for the audience. Because you never really knew what was going on or where it was about to go. 5/5

Now that we’ve entered spooky season, what are some horror films you’ve seen or want to see? Let me know down in the comments below and as always until next time friends!

The Album and Born Pink Similarities.

We’re

By : Shanise Lachelle

We’re back with another BLACK PINK POST.

This time we’re comparing Their debut album with their current albums singles, and how much they sound similar. Let’s get into it….

1. Pink Venom=How you like That

2. Savage = Typa Girl

3. The Happiest Girl- you’ll never know

4. Bet you wanna know- Shut Down

6. Love Sick Girls- yeah yeah yeah

I noticed after listening to Born Pink, I loved how each song was kind of a Adult version of the songs off their debut album , The Album. I love how consistent they are with their sound.

Of course I would love for them to experiment MORE, but i absolutely love that they’ve FOUND their sound. And no one else can duplicate it. Born Pink is one of the best K-pop albums of 2022.

SHUT DOWN REACTION!

By :Shanise Lachelle

BlackPink has officially released their second single from their album BORN PINK, and I absolutely loved it.

Shut Down is everything I wanted from BLACKPINK. It’s a cool laid back diss track to all their haters. If it’s one thing BlackPink is gonna do, it’s let their haters know they are that GIRL GROUP. I understand why they had PINK VENOM as their hype single. Especially after being gone for two years and leaving the fans hungry. But I wish they would have had SHUT DOWN released first. Both songs address the haters and both songs are full of confidence.

Once again Rapper Jennie is back with a vengeance, and killing it. “Bunch of wannabes that wanna be me, me 3 if I was you”. Talk about SHUTTING IT DOWN!! (See what I did there), I like that the girls and their team let their success and hard work do the talking. Most A list celebrities go on rants about how they’re the shit and they’re the biggest xyz. BlackPink keeps it classy and just releases bop after bop. Letting their music set everyone straight. Jisoo looks AMAZING, especially when she’s center during the dance break! I fell a little in love with her at that moment!!

Of course every-time the Girls release anything, the haters will come and say it’s garbage or sounds like every other BlackPink song. But it’s just that they have found THEIR signature sound and they’re making the most of it. I think it’s smart while they stick to their formula they also try and change it up a bit.

I wasn’t a HUGE fan of Pink Venom when it first came out and it does sound similar to their other songs. But as always it grew on me and I love it now. Do I think they should venture out more?! Yes absolutely, but they should also keep their signature sound while they’re at it. I give SHUT DOWN 5/5 and all it’s roses. Yg does get on my nerves, and they could be doing so much MORE. And the girls should have way more albums out by now, but we will take what we can get.

BlackPink has mastered their craft and sound, and there is not another girl group out like them right now. And I’m not sure there will ever BE!!!

Favorite Born Pink Singles.

By :Shanise Lachelle

Hello friends and HAPPY SUNDAY! today starts a new week and this week will be all about Black Pink and their new album BORN PINK. So let’s get into, but before we do make sure you’re subscribed to the blog , so you can stay updated with future blog posts and much more!

Today we will be talking about my BORN Pink Favorites. Now don’t get me wrong, the entire album is 5/5. And I LOVE every song, but of course I favor some more than others. So let’s go…. Maybe we will have some of the same favorites…

1. Typa Girl- VERY MUCH OBSESSED WITH THIS SONG. it’s my new it girl anthem.

2. SHUT DOWN- another diss song to the haters, because we know BLACKPINK has many. And I’m living for all the confidence and SHADE!!!!

3. The Happiest Girl- I never thought BlackPink would have a ballad I absolutely LOVE. But here we are, the girls all sound absolutely incredible!! And this is the first time I’ve actually heard them sing and belt. Probing the haters wrong once again that they’re more than just cool K-pop idols. They can actually SING.

4. TALLY– a BOPPPPP

5. Hard to LOve- this is rose song!! And I love the chill beat but also the message behind it.

5. Pink VENOM- not my favorite BlackPink single but it’s so catchy and fire!! Had to put her on the list.

6. Yeah YEAH YEAH

With this being only their SECOND official album. The girls are letting EVERYONE know they’re here to stay and this is why they’re so loved. But also why they’re so hated. BlackPink consistently puts out amazing songs . And they’re full of confidence and grow to be better artists each comeback! I know we blinks complain about the same old teddy – BlackPink formula. But they’ve found their sound and they’re owning it.

One things for sure, you know a BLACK PINK SONG WHEN YOU HEAR IT. One of a kind never duplicated.

BlackPink is here to stay, and Born Pink just proves that !

Born Pink Reaction

By : Shanise Lachelle

After fully listening to the Born Pink album I’m ready to fully dive into my favorite songs and what my honest thoughts are , on this long awaited album! So let’s get into it blinks…..

First things first, I am blown away and the girls fully delivered!! Pink venom got us hype but we wanted more. Shut Down fed us well and left us wanting MORE. And they did not disappoint. Even the leaked Ready to Love sounds amazing and remastered.

This album is the big sister to their debut The Album from 2020. A lot of the singles off Born Pink even sound like more flushed out versions of some of their older singles. Which is hugely In part due to them ALWAYS working with their favorite producer Teddy. Which blinks and casual fans have a love-hate relationship with. He tends to keep the girls in a box but the box is always full of catchy bops so it’s a double edge sword.

Vocally Jisoo and Jennie really SHINED the most in this album. Rose is always great and Lisa always surprises me with her vocal abilities. But Jisoo and Jennie just stood out the most to me, especially during The Happiest Girl. the rap line COMPLETELY ATE DOWN!! Type Girl proves that blackpinks rap line could hang with the big leagues!

Born pink delivers on every single level!! As a proud blink it was well worth the two year wait!! I give this album 5/5, once again their lead singles trick us and the b-sides end up being better songs and outshining the lead single.

Have you listened to Born Pink? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments down below. As always … until next time friends.

Favorite BlackPink Comebacks

By:Shanise Lachelle

I’ve been a blink for a few years now. And actually became a blink before I was Army. BlackPink is a K-pop girl group , that works under the label Yg. Their take on K-pop is sometimes a hit or mess with fans alike, as it has a lot of western influences in their music.

When I got into BlackPink they had to exploded on the music scene in the states with kill this love. It was my first introduction to K-pop and to BlackPink, and I was obsessed. Now I didn’t fully get into that comeback and really came around towards the end of it. But I still consider myself a baby blink during that time. after that it was history and I became a huge fan of the girls! And it got me thinking, what’s my favorite comeback they’ve done?!

So I’ll be ranking my favorite BLACKPINK comebacks in order, and only the comebacks I’ve been apart of!

1.

How You Like That

2.

Kill This Love

3.

Pink Venom

What’s your favorite BlackPink Comeback?! I so wish I was a fan during Du Du Du. But let me know in the comments down below!

And as always… until next time friends.

Talk That Talk Review

By: Shanise Lachelle

Twice is back and with another hit single! Let’s get into it.

This is my third twice comeback now, and they just seem to get better and better every time! They never try too hard or the concepts never seem forced. They stick to what they’re good at and just mature it as they grow older.

This just might be my favorite Twice comeback …. EVER. I loved the concept photos and the video just pulled it all together!

Talk that talk is a love song about wanting to hear from your crush just how they feel about you. How certain words will make you feel the connection deeper. Nayeon and Jihyo vocals sound so similar In this song . And if it wasn’t for me reading the lyrics , I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Sanas little hook is so satisfying. And I loved hearing the rap line sing AND rap. Overall the song is a bop and a 5/5!!!

The video itself is so cool and retro while giving us a ode to the 90s girl groups videos. Also making the girls look like super sexy and fun assassin’s!

The live performances of Talk that talk have been so much fun and the girls totally look they’re having the time of their lives. With the noticeably absent jihyo, as she’s not been feeling well. We wish her a speedy recovery!

Talk That Talk is the song for the end of summer and it’s bringing us right into fall. I can’t this song out of my head and I’m sure if you listen to it, you’ll be just as obsessed as I am!

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

By: Shanise Lachelle

There’s been lots of debate on K-pop social media about who the Rookie of the year award should go to and in my humble opinion, I really believe NEW JEANS should have it and here’s why!

There’s not been a girl group since Aespa debuted to make this much noise and have this much Attention, (see what I did there). Since Hybe secretly dropped Attention it’s only been up for the girls!

All 4 of their singles are BOPS, and played continuously throughout TikTok. The 3 most played being , Cookie, Attention , and Hype Boy!

I’ve constantly seen so many people do their challenges and use their songs! They literally became over night sensations, I haven’t seen that happen with a group in a WHILE in such a short period of time!! Their songs are even popping off outside of the K-pop world, that’s how I know they’re on their way to being Huge Stars.

That’s why I believe they should get rookie of the year, granted they just debuted this month, but they’ve already generated so much buzz and have the absolute star potential. And they’re starting to perform more and show different sides to them as well.

NEW JEANS WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT SHOULD BE ROOKIES OF 2022! They deserve it.
