    With hits this tailored and successfully executed, the group’s roof-shattering popularity comes as no surprise in the least.

    There will be time for Blackpink to experiment—ideally in a full-length project. Until then, the women are deepening their brand of K-pop for a quickly growing, language-agnostic fanbase eagerly anticipating every fierce new beat drop.

    Though BLACKPINK can sing and dance with precision, the production of Kill This Love is also weirdly dated, like it was crafted earlier in the decade and then forgotten in a time capsule for five years.

    Kill This Love ... showcases a band who are certainly talented but perhaps not quite ready for the next upward arc in the ride they’re currently on.

    This EP starts off with Kill This Love, a powerful anthem like song. DKWTD and Hope Not are slower songs that showcase their vocals best. KickThis EP starts off with Kill This Love, a powerful anthem like song. DKWTD and Hope Not are slower songs that showcase their vocals best. Kick It is an upbeat song that shows BLACKPINK’s tough and fun side. Despite the fact that this mini album only has 4 songs (I’m not counting DDDD remix), all the songs are enjoyable and unskippable.

    The Coachella performance really showcased how enjoyable this Extended Play could be.
    Hopefully the full studio album comes this year for the next step in BLACKPINK's growth.

    One powerful title track and some more songs who gives us a different stuff on Blackpink's repertory, with more chill and darker tracks, a great EP.
