It was only this summer when news first dropped that BLACKPINK was returning with new material almost two years after the K-pop girl group dropped their debut full-length LP, The Album, in 2020. Quickly, the quartet consisting of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa created a global buzz among music fans wondering what they would come up with this time.

After releasing the Billboard Global 200-topping “Pink Venom,” as well as the buzz track “Ready for Love,” BLACKPINK has finally come back in full with their second full-length record Born Pink. Just like The Album, the newly released Born Pink consists of eight tracks that feature the members singing and rapping in both English and Korean, with this new LP boasting four songs fully in English, pointing to their ambitions to further break language barriers. The record also includes a range of sounds, including traditional Korean instruments, 19th-century classical music and vintage synthesizer work, all mixed into BLACKPINK’s blend of today’s pop and hip-hop trends.

During a press conference ahead of the release of “Pink Venom,” the BP members spoke excitedly about their new material and the dedication they put into each track. “We have really focused on our new songs,” Rosé said with Lisa echoing her excitement, adding that “All our songs are really good.”

Now, BLINKs and music fans worldwide can get into all of the new BLACKPINK material with the arrival of Born Pink. Led by the new single “Shut Down” and boasting songwriting contributions from Jisoo and Rosé, the new LP stands firm in the group’s already untouchable discography. But which songs stand out the most? Check out our ranking of every song off of BLACKPINK’s Born Pink below.
