With “How You Like That” on the horizon, I decided to look back and update my ranking of BLACKPINK’s discography. Since then, I’ve gotten way more into their music and turned into a full-on fan that has been salivating for a new album alongside every other fan and stan. So on the eve of their new era, I’ve decided to update my opinion on what I believe their best songs to be.
This is the by far the worst song they have ever put out. The hardstyle breakdowns clash horribly with the group’s performances and given the arguably iconic post-chorus beat break of the original, this clunky mess completely rips away the personality that made me fall in love with “DDU-DU DDU-DU”. Still, it’s only a remix so I can’t fault them too much for trying something different.
“SEE U LATER” is one of the few songs that I maintain my original opinion on. It’s a cute pop tune with serviceable performances from each member but the hook on this song is just…bad. It sticks out like a sore thumb and ruins the moving build-up leading towards it.
