The title of BLACKPINK’s comeback title track has been unveiled. It is “As If It’s Your Last”.
Today, three days ahead of BLACKPINK’s comeback, the title of the team’s new song has been unveiled. On June 19 in the morning, YG Entertainment released a teaser image of the complete team of BLACKPINK on the company’s official blog. The image shows the title of BLACKPINK’s new song, which goes “As If It’s Your Last”.
According to an YG insider, BLACKPINK’s new single to be released on the 22nd this month includes a singular song. BLACKPINK released two songs in each of the “SQUARE” series single albums released in August and November last year. BLACKPINK’s new song “As If It’s Your Last” is kind of a surprise gift for fans who have loved BLACKPINK, which is given during the period for the team to prepare for “SQUARE THREE” album.
The YG insider explained the reason why BLACKPINK is releasing their first single song, “’As If It’s Your Last’ is a cool and refreshing song that will beat the scorching heat of these days. It is the quickest and most exciting song among BLACKPINK’s songs released so far. YG decided that the song is best for the hot summer season during July and August”.
The insider also hinted that BLACKPINK is currently working hard on their third “SQUARE” series album as well and it will be released after the completion of the performances of “As If It’s Your Last”, to further raise music fans’ anticipation.
The lyrics of “As If It’s Your Last” talk about the excitement of love. In the song, a girl asks her lover to love her like it is the last day of their love, saying, “Baby hug me until I break as if it’s your last day” and “Kiss me like a lie as if I’m your last love”.
Music fans are now paying keen attention to whether BLACKPINK’s first new song “As If It’s Your Last” in seven months and for this year will play the role of a cleanup hitter to follow the big hit created by “WHISTLE”, “BOOMBAYAH”, and “PLAYING WITH FIRE”.
YG has been raising fans’ anticipation for BLACKPINK’s comeback by releasing teaser images that well-displayed the appeals of individual members of BLACKPINK one after another. Now, it seems that BLACKPINK’s comeback project has been kicked off in earnest three days ahead of the comeback, as the poster of all the four members and the title of the new song are unveiled.
BLACKPINK will release the music and video of their new song “As If It’s Your Last” on June 22 at 6PM and will implement active domestic promotions for their new song for about two months. In addition, in mid-July, BLACKPINK will host their first showcase in Japan. The number of applications to visit the showcase was 10 times larger than what was expected, so local staff was greatly surprised by the big popularity and interest in BLACKPINK in the country even before the official beginning of the promotion for the team.
