John Mayer appreciates a good cover. So when BLACKPINK's singer Rosé performed a soulful version of his 2006 Continuum track "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" on the South Korean variety show Sea of Hope on Tuesday (June 29), Mayer made sure to give the K-pop star some props.
Rosé was accompanied by a guitarist and keyboard player in what looked like a library for the performance, and as the song picked up steam toward the end, SHINee member Onew and AKMU's Lee Su-hyun joined her on backing vocals. Though she held an acoustic guitar during the performance, Rosé never played it.
Guitar-slinger Mayer loved everything about the performance, tweeting out a link to the video with the message, "This is gorgeous @ygofficialblink #rosÉ." The cover is part of Rosé's ongoing solo ventures, which kicked off in March when she dropped her debut solo project, -R-, which features the singles "Gone" and "On the Ground."
