BLINKs upset with YG’s treatment of Rosé & Lisa; Rosé’s On The Ground MV teaser dropped
There’s trouble in the house YG Entertainment, yet again. For years, BLINKs have taken to Twitter to expose how badly the agency has been treating its artists - more so, in support of the girl group BLACKPINK. Today too, the fans chose the micro-blogging site to raise awareness of the mistreatment and fake promises the agency has been making to them.
Scheduled to release on March 12, Rosé's first solo single album is titled R. The music video teaser of the title track On The Ground was also dropped today. Fans are mainly upset at the agency because first, the agency promised a mini album for all members and releasing Rosé’s first debut solo album, fans expected a few songs - including Gone, which she sung at The Show, the group’s first virtual concert. But, the way the tracklist hasn’t been released yet, many fans are speculating that the album will only include one song - the title track - and it’s making them frustrated.
Check out the MV teaser below:
YG had promised the fans about each member’s solo projects as actual albums but most projects have mostly been delayed, due to some or the reasons. In addition to that, BLINKs are also upset over the lack of promotions of the album. As it’s the first debut album, fans expected more than just photo teasers dropped on social media sites.
Check out the D-4 and D-5 teasers below:
To top it off, #YGTreatLisaRight and #YGSTOPSABOTAGINGLISA started to trend on Twitter. From the group's promotional activities to not promoting her solo projects (the Lili film Official YouTube channel), fans have been demanding proper treatment and respect for the maknae, Lisa. Fans even noticed the negligent editing that very apparently looks photoshopped by an amateur - especially the latest smartphone company promotions, which basically triggered the fans. Even major Chinese fansites have joined in on the trend and it already has a million tweets so far. -
