When we sing along to “I went crazy over you” while we listen to THE ALBUM, we aren’t talking about a romantic partner. We’re talking about how long we’ve been waiting for a BLACKPINK comeback! But lucky for us, even though their comeback isn’t officially here, we’re getting new content thanks to PUBG Mobile.
BLACKPINK teamed up with PUBG for a virtual concert and the release of their highly-anticipated track ‘Ready For Love’ – yup, the one we’ve been waiting for since they gave us a preview in their 2020 Light Up The Sky documentary! During the performance and music video, virtual avatars of the group sing and dance with such similar energy to the real BLACKPINK, and it blows our mind how much work must have gone into it.
Wow, what a road it took us to get here! As we mentioned, we first got a taste of ‘Ready For Love’ in the girls’ Netflix documentary, Light Up The Sky. The movie took us into the studio with Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, Rosé, and their longtime producer Teddy Park while they recorded the song, and it made us think it was meant to be on THE ALBUM before ultimately getting scrapped. If it doesn’t stay a standalone single, maybe it’ll appear as a b-side on the next BLACKPINK album!
We might be a little biased since we’ve loved ‘Ready For Love’ since that first preview, but we think this was the perfect way to get BLINKs hyped for BLACKPINK’s impending summer comeback! It’s a high-energy banger that’s been stuck in our heads for ages, and releasing it a few weeks before comeback day was a great idea. Think of it as a musical appetizer!
