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!!!
