BLACKPINK recently turned five years old and they celebrated with fans through a live broadcast. Here, they touched on a variety of topics ranging from Lisa‘s new dog to the traits they want to copy from one another. They also discussed their songs and what changed behind the scenes.
The one that was most memorable for going through so many changes was none other than their 2016 hit “WHISTLE.”
Lisa revealed that they even filmed its music video before listening to the final version! In particular, they had never heard the very end of the song prior to shooting the dance sequence for the bridge.
The scene with the chandelier on the ceiling, it was the first time we listened to the ending hook of the song.
Their reactions were that of genuine confusion!
The song was playing, and we were like, ‘What is this?’
According to Jisoo, “Whistle changed a lot” out of every song that they’ve recorded.
It was always a new version whenever we went to the studio.
The many revisions resulted in a perfect debut song! It steadily climbed to the top of the charts after it was released, becoming the track that gave BLACKPINK their first win.
