On September 16th, BLACKPINK released the music video to their new title track, ‘Shut Down’. This comes simultaneously with the group’s 2nd full album, ‘Born Pink’. Featuring a sample from violinist Niccolò Paganini‘s ‘La Campanella’, the classical piece syncs with hip hop beats, adding a modern twist to the instrumental. Veering away from a beat drop (or anti-drop), the song bubbles along to its finale when the singers cue the famous line ‘Blackpink in your area’.
Watching the music video, it makes several references to the YG Entertainment quartet’s past MVs. A few examples include Jennie‘s tank seen in ‘DDU DU DDU DU’, Rosé‘ sitting on a globe from ‘Whistle’, Lisa standing at the end of a port from ‘Playing With Fire’, and Jisoo standing in front of a painting of her scene in ‘DDU DU DDU DU’. Signboards around the main dancing set also display the names of the group’s singles.
Check out the music video down below!
