 “We were frequently asked to cover pop songs, and you know they always have raps. One day, one trainer told me, ‘You can speak English pretty fast. Why don’t you try rapping?’ I was like, ‘Okay.’ Anyway, I enjoyed rapping as soon as I started doing it. I pretty much just rapped until I made my debut, but I really like singing nowadays.” Jennie excitedly recounted.

Despite being one of the top female rappers in K-pop 3rd gen, Jennie still works hard on her singing technique.  In addition to being the main rapper, she is also the lead vocalist of BLACKPINK.  Compared to the group’s main vocalist Rosé, Jennie‘s vocal skills, voice color and delivery are not inferior.

Jennie also often receives many singing segments in BLACKPINK songs such as Ice Cream, How You Like That, Lovesick Girls.  In addition, she is also highly appreciated for her ability to sing live stably.  Rosé and Jennie‘s vocal harmonies always make fans “crazy”.
