BLACKPINK‘s Rosé finally released her first ever solo album, R, to great reviews.
In a private press conference, the BLACKPINK main vocalist shared how her fellow members reacted to her solo. Jennie showed her support through her actions as she made Rosé cute gifts including jewelry with Hank, her dog’s name, engraved on it. Jisoo gave her heartfelt words of encouragement while Lisa praised her song and video to the staff members around her.
[Jisoo] said, ‘I hope you do everything that your heart wishes this time. Just try to do everything you want.‘
The girls continued to show their excitement for her as soon as R was revealed to the public. Jisoo posted several stories on Instagram to celebrate the occasion.
Finally!! Please anticipate it lots.
Our Chaeng’s song is out. It’s a lifetime [best] song!
Eagle-eyed fans even spotted Jisoo tuning in to Rosé’s live broadcast along with millions of other BLINKs. She left a simple, “Chaeyoung ❤️” (Rosé’s Korean name) as a comment to show how she’s paying close attention to the video.
The three members sent her words of encouragement that she read aloud during the broadcast. Jisoo warmly said, “BLACKPINK’s pride, our voice genius, Rosé. Chaengie! You’ve waited long for your first solo, so do everything you want and I hope you make many happy memories with BLINKs.”
Lisa had an equally sweet request to fans: “Please give lots of love to cutie Rosé’s solo, my twin.”
Jennie revealed that she was the first person who listened to “Gone” and “On The Ground” and that she was confident everyone would enjoy them just as much as she did.
Hi Rosie posie, finally today has come. Congratulations, I’m so so happy for you! I know how long you’ve been waiting to release your magical voice to the world and since I had the privilege to hear the songs first, I know everybody is going to love it. Don’t forget to take care of yourself, your body, and Hank.
Everyone in BLACKPINK was genuinely excited for their main vocalist, and it made her feel even more motivated than usual. She shared during the press conference how their support meant the world to her: “Each one of them really cheered me on so much. It just made me realize how important encouragement was.”
