Netizens are pissed at Jennie’s lack of rap in BLACKPINK’s new MV, “This is discrimination”

BLACKPINK finally dropped an MV after a long hiatus. However, fans of Jennie are angry instead of excited. 

Despite being a CGI MV, BLACKPINK’s new collaboration song with PUBG Mobile, “Ready For Love”, was highly anticipated. However, after the release of the song, fans expressed anger over an alleged discrimination rather than enthusiasm.

However, BLINKs (fans of BLACKPINK) are arguing about the song’s line distribution

In their new MV “Ready For Love”, which was released on July 29th, BLACKPINK appeared in the form of AI characters, but still sang with their real voice. Therefore, the collaboration with PUBG Mobile is still considered a pre-release ahead of the group’s comeback.

However, immediately after release, fans of BLACKPINK started to argue about the song’s line distribution. According to them, it’s not surprising to see Rosé’s long singing time since she is the main vocal, but Jennie had little to no rap lines despite being the main rapper. 

Meanwhile, Lisa got the most rap parts despite being the group’s main dancer. Her line distribution, however, ranked last among BLACKPINK members.

The line distribution of BLACKPINK’s new song became a controversial topic among fans. 

Various netizens started to express that as Jennie is the group’s main rapper, she should be in charge of the rap parts. Some only fans of Jennie even started to attack Lisa over this, claiming that Lisa “stole” Jennie’s line. Meanwhile, fans of Lisa also feel angered about Lisa having the least part in the song.

Overall though, most criticisms were directed to YG, with netizens stating that the company should have been considerate when assigning singing parts. Instead of making a mess out the line distribution, YG should have just let the members do their respective part, said fans.

Alongside the line distribution, the appearance of BLACKPINK’s 3D models also caused controversies. To most fans, the image looks rather ridiculous and even similar to the members. Some even went as far as to compare the CGI BLACKPINK to the ae counterparts of aespa.
