And Lisa was officially credited for writing her part in DJ Snake‘s “SXY GIRL” with Ozuna and Megan Thee Stallion.

But it’s never been a secret among fans that BLACKPINK have often revealed their contributions for songs, even if they were never officially given credit.

A fact that often frustrates fans, who understandably feel that BLACKPINK should be given credit for their hard work.

And fans have once again received confirmation about how involved BLACKPINK actually are with their music, thanks to a recent interview with Rolling Stone.

Jisoo was very direct about their involvement, clearly stating that they aren’t just given their songs.

We don’t just receive a completed song.

In fact, according to Jisoo, all of the members are involved in every part of their songs’ creation.

We are involved from the beginning, building the blocks, adding this or that feeling, exchanging feedback.

And their involvement doesn’t simply start and stop at working on a song. According to Jisoo, the members are also involved in creating the choreography for their performances.

… We say, ‘How about adding this in the lyrics? How about adding this move in the choreography?’

Which, understandably, not only gives Jisoo an immense sense of pride…

… This process of creating makes me feel proud of our music.

But also helps her feel impassioned about the music that they perform.

If we just received pre-made songs, it would feel mechanical. I feel more love for the process…

But, of course, the members also talk about the immense pressure they have while making music. In the interview, both Jisoo and Jennie joke about the most enjoyable part of making music not being a part of the actual process.

Jisoo: The most fun is before we start making it.

Jennie: Or when it’s in the past.

And Rosé and Lisa also share how they envy their past selves when they were excited to step into the recording booth and not overwhelmed with pressure and expectation.

Rosé: When I recorded something for the first time, I was so excited. I didn’t know any better, so it was fun. I envy that now. Now, no matter how hard I try, a part of me is never satisfied.

Lisa: That’s an occupational disease. And I feel exactly the same.
