Every day until the end of April, we’ll highlight some of our favorite kpop girl group vocalists on the way to #1.
Winking her way to the #26 spot isssss…
…Jennie of BLACKPINK.
Obviously, Jennie is a kpop queen. She’s been on the cover of magazines worldwide. She’s incredibly fierce. She’s a feisty, fun rapper. I could go on all day about why she’s a true legend, but for me, what’s really special about Jennie is her singing.
Heavy production is a part of BLACKPINK’s sound, and so it can be hard to fully appreciate her vocals. But when you listen to her cover of When Will My Life Begin? from Tangled, you can get a feel for just how pretty her voice is. She’s very expressive, telling the story of the song with every note she sings.
When you listen to her performance of SOLO, you can appreciate what I love most about Jennie’s vocals–she has a style on her own. She expertly belts out notes and then pulls back suddenly, switching to a breathier voice. The effect makes the song (and every BLACKPINK track) sexy and fiery at the same time.
No one else brings it just like Jennie does, and because of that, she’s found her way onto our list of favorite kpop vocalists. You can check out the playlist of some of her solo performances to hear more of her. I apologize in advance for the sound quality, they’re mainly fancams.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow to meet #25 on our list.
