“Pink Venom” is the pre-release single from South Korean girl group BLACKPINK and their second album “BORN PINK”, which was released on the 16th September 2022.
The Korean-Pink track is a fusion of hip-hop, rap and dance, while simultaneously incorporating traditional Korean instruments such as the gayageum, a pluck zither that contains 12 strings. The song is a completely different sound for the group, with a high focus on the singers various vocal abilities, and lyrically details BLACKPINK’s deadly (yet lovely) plan of capturing people in their “pink venom”.
