CD Review: The Album by BlackPink

BlackPink has been around for a while. They are an iconic girl group from South Korea. The group contains four members: Jennie, Jisoo, Rose, and Lisa.

BlackPink just released a new album on October 2nd called “The Album.” This album makes you want to get up to dance and sing along!

With only 8 songs on the album, it is full of a variety of beats, raps, and collaborations with Selena Gomez (Ice Cream) and Cardi B (Bet you wanna) making the album even more exciting to listen to!

BlackPink is easy to listen to and sing along with. They have clear sing-along quality with a mix of Korean in songs, making them unique.

BlackPink’s first album “Playing with Fire” sold more than 2.5 million digital copies in South Korea and became Blackpink’s second number- one hit on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart. This made Black Pink the first K-pop girl group to have such high demand.

After four years, fans have been waiting patiently for this girl group to come out with more. Even though only 8 additional songs in this album is disappointing, it makes people wanting more.

I would like to see in this album more emotion and slower songs. All the songs but “You Never know” are upbeat and fun.

I would give “The Album” by BlackPink an 8/10.

If you are a 14-19 year old female, this girl group is for you!

    The elements of a good review are here, Katie. Now you have to catch the reader’s attention. As with any news story you do that with a catchy lead. Experiment a bit with leads. Don’t be afraid to have fun. You can’t break anything.

    If it had been I would have done something with the brevity of eight songs and about 22 minutes of music. If I had bought this as an album I’d want my damn money’s worth.
