AceShowbiz - BLACKPINK has treated fans to a new single ahead of their new album release. On Friday, August 19, the K-Pop girl group unleashed "Pink Venom" and its music video that shows Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa performing their signature choreographed dances in front of different futuristic backdrops.
"I bring the pain like… This, that pink venom/ This, that pink venom," Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa sing in the chorus. "Get'em, get'em, get'em/ Straight till your dome like woah woah woah."
"Pink Venom" serves as the leading single off the BLACKPINK's upcoming album, "Born Pink", which is set to be released on September 16. The song arrived after the group dropped a collaboration with PUBG MOBILE called "Ready for Love".
Earlier in July, BLACKPINK announced that they are in the "final stages of recording a new album." According to their record label YG Entertainment, the sophomore album will begin a "continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year." It went on to note that the project will begin "a lot of BLACKPINK-esque music [that] has been prepared over a long period of time."
The forthcoming record will follow BLACKPINK's 2020's debut "The ALBUM". Speaking about their upcoming music, Jisso told Rolling Stone last month, "We don't just receive a completed song... We are involved from the beginning, building the blocks, adding this or that feeling, exchanging feedback - and this process of creating makes me feel proud of our music."
"If we just received pre-made songs, it would feel mechanical," she further explained. "I feel more love for the process, because we say, 'How about adding this in the lyrics? How about adding this move in the choreography?' "
BLACKPINK is also planning the "largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group." They will kick off the "Born Pink" world tour with two consecutive nights in Seoul on October 16 and 17. They will play the British capital on December 1, before heading to Europe.
The quartet will then head to Australia, Singapore and Thailand in 2023. Venues for all dates are still to be announced. The tour is in support of their eagerly-awaited second studio album, "Born Pink," which is due out in September.
