YG Entertainment recently announced BLACKPINK‘s newest release, but it’s not the news many fans were hoping to hear.
With a release date of March 2nd, the “2022 Welcoming Collection” is a DVD that shows off each of the members’ individual charms. While the material itself is loved by fans, they are more concerned with YG Entertainment’s priorities when it comes to BLACKPINK.
“We need a comeback it’s been 500 days 😭,” one fan writes. The comments of YG Entertainment’s announcement are flooded with fans in protest, waiting for new music from the group instead.
Shortly after, fans began trending #WeWantBLACKPINKMusic on Twitter, firmly stating “No music, no money.” Many fans have also noticed the similarities with BLACKPINK’s older “Welcoming Collection,” pointing out that some of the imagery may be recycled.
Yg why you give us a cover made in 2020 which is not even cute? , Nor will we have a concept? , your way of generating money is the worst

YG has ruined Blackpink, they’re so successful but could’ve had a much bigger career
