After being hyped for years, YG Entertainment finally unleashed BLACKPINK from the dungeon with their debut back to back single Whistle and BOOMBAYAH, and the public reception is very good.
Whistle is a minimalistic hiphop sound, with (of course) whistling as the main component. The girls are really pretty and the MV is very slick, as expected from YG.
Boombayah on the other hand is an upbeat EDM track with some Indian sound.
Coming from YG Entertainment, its’ not a surprise that many people comparing them to 2NE1, but even though they carry similar sound, BLACKPINK is not 2NE1 so I’m expecting more from their upcoming releases.
