However, Bekuh Boom’s recent activities confused fans whether it was a “shade” against the group. In October, the composer uploaded a Tiktok video performing a segment from “Typa Girl” in her own version along with an introductory remark: “I wrote ‘Typa Girl’ for BLACKPINK… and then I wrote another verse for myself”. According to fans’ interpretation, the lyrics were directed towards Jennie – an active ambassador to Chanel, with the lyric: “Dolla signs on my bag not COCO”, the word “COCO” was said to refer to Coco Chanel – the famous designer of the House of Chanel. 

The video is said to be directed to BLACKPINK by Bekuh Boom. 

Moreover, specific and direct lyrics (“I’m who they call when these b*tches need help”, “Type to get your *ss deleted”) strengthened fans’ stance as the composer was the one behind some of BLACKPINK’s biggest hits. Fans also discovered that Bekuh Boom unfollowed Jennie and Rosé on Instagram.
