The story of how Jennie (BLACKPINK) became a rapper actually starts from a random conversation

Few people know that thanks to a random conversation, Jennie has become one of the top rappers and also an all-rounder of Kpop 3rd generation.

On August 20, on the 11th anniversary of Jennie joining YG Entertainment and becoming a trainee, her fans spread the adorable story of how Jennie became a rapper.

Are you curious why Jennie became a rapper?

Specifically, during BLACKPINK’s appearance on Zach Sang Show, Jennie was asked: “You are the rapper, right? Was rapping something that you have always done or was that new when you joined the group?

Jennie was asked if rapping was her choice from the start

In response to this question, Jennie shared an interesting story of her journey to become the main rapper. Accordingly, when she first joined YG, there weren’t other trainees who could speak English well, Jennie was the only one who was fluent in English.  This can be easily explained because she had lived and studied in New Zealand for a long time. Therefore, when asked by vocal instructors to cover pop songs, most of which have rap parts, Jennie automatically became a strong “candidate” to take on these rap parts.

Rapping has been Jennie’s passion since trainee days

She excitedly revealed, “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.”

Moreover, during the trainee days, because Jennie also showed that she loved to sing and was trained in vocals, she also improved in terms of vocals. Therefore, when debuting with BLACKPINK, besides the rap verses, Jennie was often the one to start the song and was given many singing parts, together with the main vocalist Rosé and lead vocalist Jisoo.
