Rosé dedicated her whole life to music, even dropping out of school to pursue her career with BLACKPINK. It makes sense that this vocalist “made time” to jam out at night with her guitar, keyboard, and an empty room.
Here’s what we know about the “On the Ground” singer and the songs she performed in BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky.
Rosé is a member of the BLACKPINK vocal line, appearing in Netflix’s ‘BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky’
Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé make up the award-winning K-pop group BLACKPINK. Together, they recorded songs like “How You Like That,” “Kill This Love,” and “Pretty Savage.” As a vocalist in the girl group, Rosé also recorded original songs and pursued her interests in fashion.
For a closer look at Rosé’s life offstage, BLINKs binge-watched the Netflix original documentary, BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky. Each member discussed their experience pre-debut and their interests outside of the K-pop group. For Rosé, that just meant more time dedicated to music.
Rosé performed a live, acoustic version of ‘Hope Not’ by BLACKPINK
When the video focused on Rosé, the documentary feature began with her alone in a dark room. Strumming along on the guitar, the vocalist did an acoustic version of BLACKPINK’s song “Hope Not.” The track was initially included on Kill This Love, with the girl group later recording a Japanese version of the song.
“That’s a really hard song. I didn’t think I could perfect that one,” Rosé said after her live performance, then turning to the keyboard. This solo performance wouldn’t be the only musical moment highlighting Rosé.
This documentary showed a clip of young Rosé accompanying herself on guitar, performing “Nobody Love” by Tori Kelly. She also performed her rendition of “When You Look Me In The Eyes,” originally popularized by the Jonas Brothers.
BLINKs saw Rosé work on original music in ‘BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky’
Rosé’s section of BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky also featured this artist’s time in the recording studio. She revealed that with so much respect for music, Rosé sometimes finds it challenging to share her musical ideas.
“It feels just like expressing myself whereas I would always sing songs of other artists,” Rosé said. “That’s more like borrowing their emotions and making it mine. Whereas this is totally just speaking from my point of view. I’m almost like a baby trying to speak in the music.”
BLINKs pointed out that Rosé’s studio song sounded similar to Somi’s “What You Waiting For.” Some hypothesized that the track could’ve been written for Rosé. Another possibility was that Rosé was tasked with recording the original demo.
In 2021, Rosé debuted original songs, becoming the second BLACKPINK member to do so. (The first was Jennie with ‘Solo.’) The idol released “On the Ground” and “Gone,” complete with original dance moves and YouTube music videos.
