BLACKPINK have finally made their long-awaited comeback with “Pink Venom,” and fans are overwhelmed by the addictive track and powerful music video. And they were incredibly excited to notice a lot of different references to BLACKPINK’s other music videos.

Here are 11 times BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom” referenced their other work.

1. Lisa’s iconic “BOOMBAYAH” rap

Although it’s not exactly a music video reference, this list wouldn’t be complete without acknowledging Lisa‘s reference to her iconic “BOOMBAYAH” lyric, especially given the similar aesthetics of the sets.

6. Rosé’s “Kill This Love” set

7. Jennie’s “How You Like That” pose

8. The fate of Lisa’s “How You Like That” apple

No apple would stay edible for two years, but Lisa’s apple in “Pink Venom” seems to have become especially rotten.

11. Rosé’s “Gone” is the bridge

In her solo music video for “Gone,” Rosé starts off with a beautiful, vibrant rose. But as the relationship falls apart in the music video, the rose burns. One clever fan suggested that this represents Rosé’s heart burning after she was broken-hearted in “Lovesick Girls,” causing her heart to turn black in “Pink Venom.”
