BLACKPINK‘s new concept teaser video for “Lovesick Girls” racked up almost half a million views in its first hour, and there’s no surprise why. From stunning visuals to a snippet of the title track instrumental, the teaser is giving BLINKs everything they want—and setting their expectations high. Here are 10 things fans expect to see and hear from “Lovesick Girls” after watching the concept video.
1. A beat drop
The “Lovesick Girls” instrumental has been describe as “dreamy” and “wavy” with a country-style guitar, but many BLINKs are expecting it to be anything but mellow. In true BLACKPINK style, fans think this song will have a sickening beat drop.
the beat and the guitar are already so pleasing to my ears and it seems that it's building up to a bigger drop! yep it's definitely not a mellow song, but a totally different vibe from their past releases. @BLACKPINK really showing us their versatility this era! #LovesickGirls
