Blackpink’s “Pink Venom” Is a Cheeky Play on Words, and I’m Obsessed

Aug 19, 2022

Today, Blackpink blessed us with a song whose name also sounds like a pretty delish drink, LOL. Enter: “Pink Venom.” Described as the group’s comeback after a brief hiatus, the song does not disappoint. The group’s members attended a press conference in South Korea and revealed they have *plenty* of ideas for their grand return, including the release of this truly certifiable banger.

When asked about “Pink Venom,” Jennie expressed the group’s desire to communicate their individuality in the song—a theme that is also reflected in the title of their album, Born Pink, per Billboard. She added, “Since our album’s title is ‘Born Pink,’ we wanted to relay our identity in the song as much as we could…Since ‘pink and ‘venom’ have contradicting images, we thought they were kind of reminiscent of us…we are named Blackpink and contradiction is our charm—we wanted to show that. It’s pink venom, a lovely poison, it’s words that most express us.”

Later, the singer affirmed her sentiment, adding that the “essence” of the group is rooted in “confidence.” “Some worry that we might stray away from our identity, but we believe it’s the most distinct and clear way to represent us,” she said. When speaking about the *chef’s kiss* music vid, fellow group member Lisa gushed that the set was amazing, and she was really looking forward to having fans see their dance moves.

Though deets on the new album Born Pink have been kept largely under wraps, we do know that all of the members—aka Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa, and Rosé, obviously—are v involved in the songwriting process, which makes “Pink Venom” all the more impressive. “We don’t just receive a completed song,” Jisoo said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone’s Haeryun Kang. “We are involved from the beginning, building the blocks, adding this or that feeling, exchanging feedback—and this process of creating makes me feel proud of our music. If we just received pre-made songs, it would feel mechanical. I feel more love for the process, because we say, ‘How about adding this in the lyrics? How about adding this move in the choreography?’” Obsessed!

Check out the truly amazing video for “Pink Venom” and learn the lyrics to the song, below:

[Intro: All]
BLACKPINK, BLACKPINK
BLACKPINK, BLACKPINK

[Verse 1: Jennie, Lisa]
Kick in the door, waving the coco
Papkonina chaenggyeo kkyeodeul saenggak malgo
I talk that talk, runways I walk, walk
Nun gamgo pop, pop an bwado cheok
One by one, then two by two
Nae sonkkeut tuk hanae da muneojineun jung
Gajja syo chigon hwaryeohaetji
Makes no sense, you couldn’t get a dollar outta me

[Pre-Chorus: Rosé, Jisoo]
Ja oneul bamiya nan
Dogeul pumeun kkot
Ne honeul ppaeaseun daeum
Look what you made us do
Cheoncheonhi neol jamjaeul fire (Fire)
Janinhal mankeum areumdawo

I bring the pain like

[Chorus: Jennie, Lisa]
This, that pink vеnom
This, that pink venom
This, that pink venom
Get ‘еm, get ’em, get ’em
Straight to ya dome like woah, woah, woah
Straight to ya dome like ah, ah, ah
Taste that pink venom

Get ’em, get ’em, get ’em
Straight to ya dome like woah, woah, woah
Straight to ya dome like ah, ah, ah

[Verse 2: Lisa, Jennie]
Black paint and ammo, got bodies like Rambo
Rest in peace, please light up a candle
This the life of a vandal, masked up and I’m still in CELINE
Designer crimes or it wouldn’t be me, ooh
Diamonds shining, drive in silence, I don’t mind it, I’m riding
Flying private side by side with the pilot up in the sky
And I’m wilding, styling on them and there’s no chance
‘Cause we got bodies on bodies like this a slow dance

[Pre-Chorus: Jisoo, Rosé]
Ja oneul bamiya
Nan dogeul pumeun kkot
Ne honeul ppaeaseun daeum
Look what you made us do
Cheoncheonhi neol jamjaeul fire (Fire)
Janinhal mankeum areumdawo

I bring the pain like

[Chorus: Lisa, Jennie]
This, that pink venom
This, that pink venom
This, that pink venom
Get ’em, get ’em, get ’em
Straight to ya dome like woah, woah, woah
Straight to ya dome like ah, ah, ah
Taste that pink venom
Taste that pink venom
Taste that pink venom

Get ’em, get ’em, get ’em
Straight to ya dome like woah, woah, woah
Straight to ya dome like ah, ah, ah

[Bridge: Rosé, Jisoo, Rosé & Jisoo, Lisa]
Wonhandamyeon provoke us
Gamdang mothae and you know this
Imi peojyeobeorin shot that potion
Ne nunapeun pingkeubit ocean

Come and give me all the smoke
Do animyeon mo like I’m so rock and roll
Come and give me all the smoke
Da jul sewo bwa ja
stop, drop
I bring the pain lik

[Outro: Jennie, Lisa, All]

Brra-ta-ta-ta, krra-ta-ta-ta (BLACKPINK)
Brra-ta-ta-ta, krra-ta-ta-ta (BLACKPINK)
