BLACKPINK Actually Started Recording “Forever Young” Before They Even Debuted

It sounds the same!

A video has recently resurfaced, showing (then) unknown YG trainees recording a brand new song back in 2015. That song turned out to be BLACKPINK‘s “Forever Young”, included on their first mini-album SQUARE UP.

In the video, a fan was walking past the YG Entertainment building at night when the familiar melody could be heard.

РЕБЯТА ВОТ ОНО!!!! WHO IS NEXT 21 NOVEMBER😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱У здания YG Entertainment около 40 минут был один и тот же отрывок этой, насколько мне известно, неизвестной песни😂🙈 Сначала подумала, что это возможно станут наши 2NE1, но очень достоверный источник @os_alina доказала, что такой песни у них никогда не было😵 Ждем результатов 😏✨ We were just going though YG entertainment building and I was like “which song is it??” “2NE1?” “Noo, that’s voices are different” and idk who are they but I DO like this song! 🎶

The fan noticed that the voice didn’t sound like a 2NE1 member’s, and it wasn’t! It was actually Rosé and Lisa’s singing their lines from the first verse.

Some fans were not happy with BLACKPINK’s long hiatus considering the songs on their mini-album have been in preparation for much longer than 1 year, but other fans were not surprised.
