Besides singing and rapping, Rei also shows off her pretty visual and charisma with short hair. Here are some comments on Rei’s cover of “SOLO”: 

  • I’m a Jennie stan but I have to admit that she’s good at rapping, good job Rei!
  • I think she sounds nice. This is the best SOLO cover out of all the covers I’ve heard.
  • Her rap is good but her expressions are somewhat funny.
  • Her expressions are lacking.
  • Why are there so many praises? Am I the only one who finds it weird? 
  • She did okay, but in the original, Jennie’s rap is attractive in a way that no one can deliver the same vibes. 
  • The rap is alright, but the expression and presence can’t be on the same level as Jennie.
  • Rei is good at rapping. Her expressions are decent for a rookie too
