Blackpink’s top 5 hit songs

Let’s select 5 famous songs of BLACKPINK.

1. Lovesick Girls

  • composer : TEDDY, 24, JENNIE, Brian Lee, Leah Haywood, R.Tee, David Guetta
  • lyricist : TEDDY, Loren,JISOO, JENNIE, Danny Chung
  • arranger : 24, R.Tee

Of course, the first person you notice is TEDDY (real name Park Hong-jun). He took part in writing the lyrics along with BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and Jennie. David Guetta, who participated in the composition, is a world-renowned EDM musician from France. Despite various rumors, he is indeed a person with an incredible career in the electronic music field, and he contributed to BLACKPINK’s song.

On the other hand, ’24’ (real name Seo Jung-hoon), who can be seen in the composition and arrangement, is affiliated with YG’s sub-label called ‘The Black Label,’ and he has collaborated with many YG-affiliated singers. Some of his representative works include Sunmi’s ‘Heroine’ and ‘Gashina.’ Moreover, he has also participated in the songs of many famous rappers in the past.

“Lovesick Girls” by Blackpink is an impressive song with lyrics that pose the ultimate question of why humans continue to seek love despite the pain and heartache it brings.

Perhaps it’s because love is a universal emotion.

The song stands out with its notable rhymes as well. One of my favorite lines is, “Didn’t wanna be a princess, I’m priceless”!

I find it so admirable how Blackpink confidently expresses that they don’t want to be princesses, but instead, they are invaluable individuals.

Isn’t it such a fantastic lyric?

Lovesick Girls

The music video for ‘Lovesick Girls’ received praise for showcasing Blackpink members’ mature inner acting through a performance-centered composition and direction, unlike the previous works that solely relied on intense performances. As soon as it was released, it explosively garnered views and reached 100 million views in just 75 hours, making it the most-watched video on YouTube for a week.

Blackpink’s YouTube channel has been rapidly growing, currently surpassing 60.1 million subscribers. As they chase after Justin Bieber, who holds the title of the most subscribed artist globally, Blackpink is on the verge of making a new record.

‘Lovesick Girls’ also achieved remarkable success on global major charts. The song topped the ‘Global YouTube Songs Top 100’ for two consecutive weeks and reached #3 on the Spotify Global Chart. Additionally, it entered the US Billboard Hot 100 at #59, gaining attention in the mainstream pop market.

R.Tee (real name Kim Jung-gu) is an artist who has participated in many of BLACKPINK’s music. He is also a producer under The Black Label, like 24, but unlike other producers in the label, he is quite active in various places. R.Tee’s name means ‘Radiohead’s T-Shirt.’ He was appointed as a ‘Vision Artist’ by World Vision in 2017, and he has an interesting career. Later, if I get the chance, I’ll post more information about R.Tee as an artist.

4. ‘마지막처럼 (AS IF IT’S YOUR LAST)’

  • composer : TEDDY, FUTURE BOUNCE, Lydia Peak
  • lyricist : TEDDY, Brothersu, CHOICE37
  • arranger : TEDDY, FUTURE BOUNCE

Brothersus is a well-known artist that many of you are already familiar with. He has collaborated with several K-pop singers, including Monsta X, WJSN (Cosmic Girls), Jeon Somi, Jung Se-woon, K.Will, and more. Moreover, he is a talented musician who has contributed to the lyrics and composition of many songs by BTS.

CHOICE37 is a Korean-American artist born in LA, who has previously been active in the underground hip-hop scene in the United States. He was part of a hip-hop group and released albums. In 2008, he came to Korea and, thanks to an introduction by his friend Teddy, whom he knew since he was young, he has been working as a producer with YG since 2009.

In 2017, YG’s leading girl group, Blackpink, made a highly anticipated comeback with their first single. This song showcases a bright and refreshing summer vibe, different from the emotions they displayed in their previous music. Among all their releases, “As If It’s Your Last” stands out as the fastest and most exhilarating track, revealing a limitless array of their charms.


“As If It’s Your Last” captivates listeners right from the introduction with its addictive lead synths. The dance track features a 4/4 kick rhythm, skillfully blending elements from various genres such as mambo-ton, reggae, and house. The song’s brilliance lies in the juxtaposition of the melodic verses and the vibrant synth lines and sound sources that accompany the chorus, creating a captivating and exciting melody in just the right places.

5. Forever Young

  • composer : TEDDY, FUTURE BOUNCE
  • lyricist : TEDDY
  • arranger : TEDDY, FUTURE BOUNCE, R.Tee

FUTURE BOUNCE is a team consisting of two members, ‘Choi Pil-kang’ and ‘Park Han-bum.’ Even before forming the team, they individually created songs for YG-affiliated singers. They officially established their team in 2015. Park Han-bum has a track record of composing and arranging songs for artists like Lee So-ra and Suran, while Choi Pil-kang has been involved in composing and arranging the epic hit ‘Spoiler’ by Epik High.

I’ve looked into Blackpink’s top 5 hit songs so far, and after examining the composers and lyricists, it’s evident why TEDDY is often referred to as Blackpink’s father. Almost every song bears TEDDY’s name in the credits. Moreover, their collaborations with famous musicians further highlight Blackpink’s high standing in the music industry. Well then, next time, I will post about ‘Blackpink’s Top 6 Favorite Songs.’

‘Forever Young’ is one of the double title tracks from Blackpink’s first mini-album ‘SQUARE UP,’ released in 2018. This dance track with a lively and beautiful verse and a charismatic and contrasting chorus features a moombahton rhythm, delivering a positive message of “Let’s burn our youth without regrets.”

Upon its release, this song, along with ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU,’ dominated various music charts, receiving immense love from fans worldwide. The ‘SQUARE UP’ album, which includes ‘Forever Young,’ reached #1 on iTunes charts in 44 countries and also topped Japan’s Oricon Digital Album Chart.

Blackpink continues to showcase their prowess as the YouTube powerhouse, not just through music videos but also with their dance practice videos garnering billions of views.
