When she pulls up you know it’s a shutdown. We’re talking about no one else but BLACKPINK’s Jisoo, who has just confirmed the release date of her first solo album titled 'ME'. After releasing the cover of her album, the star also shared a new video teaser.
BLACKPINK Jisoo’s first solo album: teaser
The new teaser is titled ‘VISUAL FILM #1’, and it’s currently trending on YouTube. You’ll see Jisoo posing with bright red poppy flowers and hear a mysterious plucking on a stringed instrument. Red, black, and white are the colours that permeate the video.
Jisoo’s solo career has been highly anticipated by fans worldwide as she’s the last member of the group to ‘debut’. Jennie‘s ‘SOLO’ came out in 2018, while Rosé’s -R- and Lisa’s Lalisa dropped in 2021. But the fans’ wait is almost over.
The K-pop star and Snowdrop actress has recently released a mysterious teaser with a striking red piece of cloth strewn on a field of grass. Then, on 8 March, she finally unveiled the main image for this solo release, along with the title 'ME'. Talk about the perfect title for this long-awaited release!
Her agency, YG Entertainment, has revealed that it has invested the largest production cost in Jisoo’s music video among BLACKPINK’s videos.
Aside from gearing up for her first solo album, Jisoo is running a tight schedule as BLACKPINK the group will head off to the States in April to headline the popular Coachella music festival. They are also on their Born Pink world tour (they will be coming to Singapore on 13 and 14 May). Jisoo has also launched her own YouTube channel and has uploaded five videos about her visits to London, Barcelona, Cologne, Paris, and Copenhagen.
