Jennie From BLACKPINK Releases “Solo”

Produced by YG Entertainment’s  Teddy and 24, “SOLO” is the solo debut single from BLACKPINK member Jennie. The hip-hop, pop anthem was released today, November 12th, along with an accompanying video.  Watch the video for “SOLO” HERE. Aside from her work with   BLACKPINK, this solo debut track showcases Jennie’s maturity and independence as an artist. YG Entertainment recently announced that all BLACKPINK  members are preparing for their solo debuts. Rosé  will be the next to debut her solo effort.

Discovered by K-Pop superstar artist/producer Teddy Park and YG Entertainment (the multi-faceted South Korean entertainment company responsible for the breakout successes of Big Bang, PSY, and 2NE1, among many others ), BLACKPINK’s lineup includes Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé. The group made its debut in August 2016 with a massively popular pair of singles: “Boombayah” and “Whistle,” which debuted at #1 and #2 on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart. That November, BLACKPINK delivered their singles “Stay” and “Playing with Fire,” their second single to reach #1 on World Digital Songs. By the end of the year, BLACKPINK had landed at #2 on Billboard’s 10 Best New K-Pop Groups in 2016.

On June 15 of this year, BLACKPINK released their debut EP Square Up and premiered its lead single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du.” The song shot to #55 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it history’s highest-charting debut by an all-female K-pop act.   The video for “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” surpassed 10 million views in just 6 hours and earned 36.2 million views in one day.  In August, “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” appeared at #3 on YouTube’s Global Top 10 Songs of the Summer list, surpassing Drake’s “In My Feelings” and Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.”  The video currently has over 450,000,000 views on YouTube.  Square Up debuted at #40 on the Billboard 200, cementing it as the highest-charting release to date by an all-female K-pop group. Square Up also hit #1 on the Billboard World Albums chart.

Wengie

Wengie is a breakout beauty and lifestyle star, influencer and now singer, whose influence is growing at staggering numbers.

Definitely a “One To Watch” Wengie’s last video Cake, already has over 6M views in a month of being out! She also just wrapped her successful summer US Tour Create Your Summer.

Recently having gained over 5M subscribers in less than a year—unprecedented growth for a YouTuber….—she’s proven to be in a league of her own. Currently garnering 11M+ subscribers on her YouTube Channel and over 15M+ across all social media platforms!

Wengie’s unique ability to deliver vibrant, informative, and highly-relatable content (including her wildly popular life “hacks” series) to a global audience—with signature quirk and humor—keeps her zealous ‘Wengiecorns’ wanting more. This unparalleled closeness and trust with her fans has cemented Wengie’s power as a leading content collaborator for both high-profile and emerging brands. Wengie has leveraged her prominence on YouTube to tackle other creative realms—she recorded her first music album in China. She is also the voice of the fourth “PowerPuff Girl” on the Cartoon Network.

Wengie aims to bring positivity and fun to music, and she does just that with this single.

Wengie has always loved pop music and R & B. For the majority of her life, Wengie has had multicultural musical taste, listening to mainly Jpop, Cpop and Kpop. She would learn lyrics to the songs having no idea what she was singing but still would be able to sing it by just memorizing it. Wengie’s main goal in music is to create fun music that is “east meets west” /Kpop-fused-with-American-pop, which is essentially all the things she loves.

Her musical influences include BLACKPINK, Hyuna, Arianna Grande and Taylor Swift.
