Is there such a thing as an “underrated” BLACKPINK song?
Surprisingly, there is! For obvious reasons, if a song isn’t promoted to an audience, it most likely won’t perform as well. However, I like to think of “underrated” songs as hidden gem. They will speak for themselves and they will stand out in their own way.
So, if you’re new to BLACKPINK and you want to experiment with their songs, I highly recommend the following songs down below:
ALL TRANSLATED LYRICS ARE VIA GENIUS
This was one of my favorite songs by BLACKPINK. They definitely put a new spin to a cute love song. It’s fun, spunky, and the rap is catchy too. If you haven’t listened to this song yet then you REALLY need to. (See what I did there? Haha).
“Want a romance like the old times
Want to slow dance when it’s show time” — Lisa
2. “See U Later”
Is it a BLACKPINK song without a bit of swag and spunk? I like to think of “See U Later” as a post break-up song. The girls are basically saying goodbye to an ex and they’re moving forward like a boss.
3. “Don’t Know What To Do”
This song is the opposite of a typical BLACKPINK song. It’s showing a vulnerable and feminine side that you don’t see often from the girls. At the same time, this song has a fun and EDM vibe to it. It’s not a heartbreak song full of sorrow.
In my opinion, “Don’t Know What To Do” is basically about missing someone and wondering if they can move forward without that person.
Like people who came and went
I guess we just weren’t meant to be — Jisoo
4. “Love To Hate Me”
Earlier in October, I wrote a whole story on this song and I dissected the lyrics too. “Love To Hate Me” is about calling out the haters, surrounding oneself with positivity, and ignoring unnecessary hate.
5. “Hope Not”
Of all the BLACKPINK songs on the market, “Hope Not” has to be the most feminine and “pink” style of them all. “Hope Not” is a heartbreak song that displays strong emotions. It’s one of those songs that you would listen to if you just experience a break up with someone. This song was also about someone learning how to heal from a heartbreak too.
“Even if they say there’s no point in regretting
I’ll keep thinking of you (I was wrong)” — Rosé
6. “Kick It”
According to Genius Lyrics, “Kick It” is a song that focuses on self-love, freedom, and independence. Also “Kick It” is a slang for relaxing, chilling, and hanging out.
In my opinion, this is BLACKPINK’s most liberating and chill song. It’s a song that I can picture playing with my friends while we enjoy a fun day at the beach.
7. “Crazy Over You”
Similar to “Love To Hate Me,” I wrote a whole story on what I thought the whole song meant with a short review too. “Crazy Over You” is about love, obsession, and falling deeply for someone.
