Girl group BLACKPINK recently returned after a year’s absence with their new EP Square Up and promptly made history when their album and the single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” became the highest-charting ever by a female K-pop act to appear on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 charts, landing at Nos. 40 and 55, respectively. The foursome recently spoke to Billboard about their new release and what fans can hope to see from them in the future.
Regarding their newest EP, Rosé says that BLACKPINK is, "Going for a much more stronger look. And I think that's portrayed mostly in the music video. We tried to pull off some looks that we, that we wouldn't have even imagined coming out with previously."
The music video for “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” was one of the most extravagant ones the quartet has put out to date and explored a variety of themes as the foursome sang about their prowess, and was heavily focused on dancing, including a fierce finger-shooting move. "As far as the choreography goes, we had a little dance break at the end, which we've never done before,” explains Jennie. “So we put a lot of effort into it, and we're so happy everybody's enjoying it."
