THE ALBUM Tracklist:
How You Like That Song 59/100 Music Video 92/100 The song is good but way too inconsistent. I think that the song should have been (this is just my opinion) Rose (Jennie’s part), Jisso, Rose, Chorus, Lisa Rap, Jennie Rap (it would make the song more consistent), Chorus, Jisso, Rose, Jisso, and then Chorus (instead of that outro). Ice Cream (with Selena Gomez) Song 91/100 Music Video 91/100 Lots of people seemed to hate this song but I actually really loved it. Very catchy and fun. Also a very fun music video. Great solid pop music with a great music video. Pretty Savage 85/100 This is what How You Like That should have been. I would have picked this for the comeback. This song is really fun to vibe to. (I also think this song should have been flipped with Ice Cream on the tracklist). Also did Jisso say “BLACKPINK in your area?” Whoever said it did it really great (I think it was Jisso or Lisa or maybe even both). Good song! Bet You Wanna (feat Cardi B) 40/100 If you only have 2 minutes and 39 seconds to listen to a song listen to Sour Candy (Lady Gaga & BLACKPINK) instead because that song is amazing. Now this song is kind of a mess. I think Cardi’s part is just thrown on there. The production is a little bit of a mess. In my opinion I think it should have been a rap battle between Cardi, Lisa, and Jennie. Sadly this is the first BLACKPINK collab that I did not like. However this could definitely grow on me. Lovesick Girls Song 86/100 Music Video 86/100 This song was really good. The music video is good to. Nice verses and chorus. Also has a good build up but stays consistent throughout. I love hearing guitars in this song. A very radio friendly and fun song! Fun to dance to! Crazy Over You 55/100 This song started good. I did not like the beat drop. This song feels very generic to me. It sounds like the radio in 2015/2016/2017/2018. Love To Heat Me 70/100 This song sounds like if “Walkashame” and “Bang Dem Sticks” had a baby. Those are both songs by Meghan Trainor off of her album “Title.” It has some good parts but nothing really special. It’s ok. You Never Know 75/100 Pretty good closer song. So happy to see Jisso get the most lines! The Album 70/100 Some of it is really good. Some of it is just not that good. Some of it is just ok. These girls have so much potential to be great. It was really showed on Ice Cream, Pretty Savage, and Lovesick Girls. It was also showed on past songs like Boombayah, Stay, As If It’s Your Last, D4, Kiss and Makeup, Kill This Love, and Sour Candy (there might be a few others that I am missing). Hope to see more from Blackpink in the future. **I also might change my mind because I will listen to this album some more. Please don’t hate, this is just my opinion. I wish these girls only the best.
They WORKED HARD AND I MEAN HARD ON THE ALBUM THEY RARELY DO THIS SO BE THANKFUL YOU HAVE THIS MUSIC!!!!!!!! 😠 Please click off quietly if you don’t like it Thank You OTHER THAN THAT SO GOOD I LUV PRETTY SAVAGE that’s my fav song💜
As a loyal blink I can say this album was a complete let down. I am not disapointed in the girls because, honestly, like with ALL of the big 3 agencies, they have bvery little say it what is done or how. YG has no idea what they are doing and these girls are wasting their talent and time being there. YG keeps sullying their group name witht heir underhanded dealings like buying all those HYLT views on YouTube, buying their spot in Coachella, buying TV and radio mentions, and lying about their U.S. shows all being sold out to try and blow up their name instead of relying on their skills.
“We are the lovesick girls” “we were born to be loved”. Seriously? That sounds like a Barbie song. No offense but it’s all about “me me me” and it’s for babies especially K-pop But I’ll give you an extra star because of Ice Cream bc it’s not bad but it’s not good
This is such an AMAZING album my favorite song is Ice Cream bc it just has so many different voice changes but all the people that leave bad comments about your songs are sucky picky people and just know that you guys are trying your best and doing amazing at it. Never stop what your doing BLACKPINK!!!😁
This album just confirmed Blackpink as my favorite group ever. I love these girls and how much they care about their fans and their music. I watched their documentary and it brought me to tears. There are no bad songs in this album and that’s a fact.
I really do like Blackpink and respect the girls for all the work they put in. I was so excited for their first album since they debuted 4 years ago, however it just didn’t have anything super refreshing or new. The sound was for the most part alright but the structure of the songs were all formatted similarly it was too repetitive. The lyrics( which carry the most weight in my eyes) were all very sub-par. They talked about love and being strong in front of haters however it wasn’t done in a way that makes me go “wow what new take on a reused concept”. Again I do like the group but I’m getting tired of not hearing enough growth or seeing it as well in the choreography. The group is definitely overhyped and honestly doesn’t live up to the reputation of being the best gg in the world. They might be the biggest at the moment but many ggs who have come before have done way more in terms of musical quality.
I can’t even express in words how much I loved this album it’s now my favorite (currently). I just love this a lot and BLACKPINK have been my favorite all girl band since the beginning but know I just love them more then ever.
The title song ‘Lovesick Girls’ is a dope🔥🔥🔥 And other songs were good too. I love the whole album but My Ranking is #1 Lovesick Girls #2 How You Like That #3 Pretty Savage #4 You Never Know #5 Crazy Over You #6 Love To Hate Me #7 Ice Cream #8 Bet You Wanna
Love these women! At first listen I felt like I wasn’t so into the album, but I realized that I am always that way and need to listen to an album multiple times before I completely fall in love with it haha. The only song I don’t really like is Icecream, but everything else is awesome. It seems like the ladies are having a great time making new songs!
Talented, Brilliant, Incredible, Amazing, Show stopping, Spectacular, Never the same, Totally Unique, Completely not ever been done before, Unafraid to reference or not reference, Put it in a blender, Sh*t on it, Vomit on it, Eat it, Give birth to it. But in all honesty, BLΛƆKPINK really did SLAY IT with this album & I wish BLONKs would stop nitpicking and stop trying so hard to find little things to bash on. Be a true BLINK and be respecting, appreciative & supportive with this accomplishment for the girls. 😇 Thank you BLΛƆKPINK for always working your hardest for each comeback! 🖤💖
It sounds like they just stole a bunch of other people’s songs to quickly create an album that they can release and make money off of. There’s no originality and no creativity. The lyrics are absolute crap, not meaningful or captivating whatsoever. Idk why people are obsessed with them. They all sound and LOOK like a bunch of 12 year old girls who haven’t hit puberty yet. Yes, they can dance and their music videos are fire, but their music is just a mixture of other people’s songs and all their previous songs. Also, their voices are not unique or good. Well, maybe Rose’s voice is slightly unique, but other than that, no. Just, no.
I’ll be honest, when I first found out BP was releasing an album I thought it would have maybe 10-12 songs. So I was disappointed to find that they had only 8 songs, including the already released HYLT and Ice Cream. I used to not like k-pop at all, because I had listened to some k-pop groups (not going to mention who, don’t want to start a war here) music and tbh it sounded generic and bland. But then a youtuber I love did a dance cover of BP’s HYLT and I loved the song so much that I started listening to some of BP’s previous EP’s and I loved every song they made. When BP released Ice Cream (w/ Selena Gomez) that song did not disappoint and I don’t understand why everyone seems to hate it 😑. The best part is, Selena Gomez is one of my mom’s fav singers, so my mom listened to Ice Cream and also loved the song and started listening to BP too! Anyway, so originally I was disappointed when I found out I would only be getting 6 new songs from BP. But when I listened to the album, I fell in love with every song! Pretty Savage has to be my favorite! Each song on this album stands out, and each member shines. Jisoo finally has the most lines on a song, and her vocals are beautiful! Rosé’s vocals are also beautiful and she sung the high notes so well. Jennie not only also sung beautifully, but she rapped as well! And Lisa slayed her verses. I look forward to hearing more music from BP!
