With their powerful image and sound, BLACKPINK is the ultimate symbol of a girlboss. The group exploded in popularity when they debuted in 2016 with their smash hit singles, “Boombayah” and “Whistle,” and have been on fire since. The members of BLACKPINK, Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé, and Lisa, are known for being both fierce (BLACK) and sweetly charming (PINK). Focusing on the “BLACK” aspect of these icons, let’s look at BLACKPINK’s b-sides that scream “girlboss”.
See U Later
That’s the main concept of a “girlboss” is fierce independence and self-reliance. In this b-side from their 2018 EP, ‘Square Up’, BLACKPINK refuses to get hung up over a boy who didn’t treat them right. Recognizing their value, the members turn their back on the boy without a second thought and never look back.
There’s no one dominating the music scene like BLACKPINK and they make that perfectly clear in “Pretty Savage”. A huge part of their massive appeal is the amount of talent behind their pretty faces. These beautiful women are “savage”, successful, and powerful, with an uncontrollable amount of popularity. The duality of their femininity and forcefulness combined, empowers them as performers.
Love To Hate Me
“Love To Hate Me” depicts a breakup from a toxic relationship centered on hate and jealousy. In the song, the girls’ significant others seem to resent their success, so they leave them and flex their wealth in the process. Similar to “See U Later”, the members recognize their value and choose to simply throw away a toxic ex.
The members of BLACKPINK are just too good to be true! Everybody loves Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé because each member is someone’s type. However, these girls aren’t your typical girls. With their stunning visuals, iconic fashion, and wild global success, these superstars are each the “typa girl” to make us fall head over heels for them. Talk about power!
