While “PINK VENOM” is visually spectacular and catchy, uneven line distribution is still an apparent matter.
The group’s fan base is pleased to see Jennie having the spotlight to showcase her rapping. She performed the rapping alongside Lisa to create a rap feature that kept viewers on the edge of their seats.
Jennie is usually thought to be the member with the most line distribution, despite not being the main vocalist, shown most prominently as in her top line proportion in “See You Later”. The idol, in fact, does experience uneven line distribution. Most exemplarily, in “Ready For Love” and “How You Like That”, Jennie was not even seen rapping.
Lisa is also one of the members with the most line distribution in most of BLACKPINK music videos. She sang the most lines in songs such as “Playing With Fire”, “As If It’s Your Last”, “How You Like That”.
Lisa had her spotlight in “PINK VENOM” where her distributed lines took up 49.43 seconds. Not only could she showcase her immaculate dancing skills but her vocal capacities as well.
While being a main vocalist herself, Rosé has not had many chances to convey her capabilities in recent songs. In the group’s latest song “PINK VENOM”, Rosé was only able to contribute to the song for 29 seconds, perplexing many of her fans. Taking charge of the main vocal position, fans believe the idol deserved more in regards to line distribution.
Fortunately, this has not always been the case. In BLACKPINK’s many other songs, Rosé is still the member with the most spotlight, including 6 songs: “BOOMBAYAH”, “Stay”, “DDU-DU DDU-DU”, “Kill This Love”, “Lovesick Girls” and “Ready for Love”.
Jisoo only had 26 seconds to show off her vocal abilities in BLACKPINK’s latest comeback, leaving her with the fewest lines in “PINK VENOM”.
Unfortunately, the situation has persisted for many eras of BLACKPINK’s released albums and tracks. She is usually the member with the least or closest to least in line proportion. Despite having a swooning vocals and stunning visuals, the idol has not had her solo debut yet.
While “PINK VENOM” is praised to be BLACKPINK’s grand comeback with more timely and proper investment from YG, the company themselves are not able to create a more balanced distribution of lines among members, making it harder for each to contribute to the songs as a group. Fans are hoping for YG to continue to deal with the issue more wisely in future comebacks.
