BLACKPINK are back “in your area” with the release of their much awaited single, “How You Like That”.
The four member girl group are here to steal hearts as they shine on screen with new looks, high-budget sets and a brand new track, kicking off a new BLACKPINK era.
The track, “How You Like That”, has been produced by long time collaborator Teddy, and features some signature sounds. Reminiscent of their past music, the South Korean girl group are ready to take on the haters, singing to a high energy, bass-thumping track.
Lisa delivers some hard hitting rap, while Jennie does the same and more, showing off her pipes on the second verse and bridge. Rose and Jisoo don their vocalist caps, delivering consistent vocals.
While this track marks the much anticipated comeback of BLACKPINK on the music scene, true fans are in it for the whole ride. It’s not just about music in K-Pop, and everyone knows it. The high-production videos have become a measure synonymous with talent in the industry and well, this video delivers. Aside from the grandiosity of the sets, the sheer number of real-life, non CGI sets is astounding.
“How You Like That” is a characteristically BLACKPINK diss track. The refrain sees the girls boasting: “Look at you, now look at me// How you like that?”.
Fans have been looking forward to the much anticipated release for weeks now, and it shows. The official music video has raked up close to 500,000 views in less than 30 minutes. The track has also reached No. 1 on the Melon Music Chart – Korea’s foremost music chart.
