Nearly two years after their songs ‘How You Like That’, ‘Ice Cream’ and ‘Lovesick Girls’ released, K-pop girl group Blackpink has made a comeback with their single ‘Pink Venom’ ahead of their upcoming album Born Pink.

On Friday, the group dropped the highly anticipated music video for ‘Pink Venom’ that opens with Jisoo playing an instrument and almost an eerie diffused sound in the back introducing the group.

The music video sees Jennie open the song with her strong vocals and Lisa’s rap until Rose takes it away with her high notes. It also sees Lisa and Jennie rap side by side. The video itself has racked up over 20 million views in the three hours since its release.

Fans have given the song and video a thumbs up on Twitter already. This user has “zero complaints” because it’s perfect and everything they wanted.

Another said that though the song is barely three minutes long, it feels longer because everyone has good parts.

Another user finds it “good” and nothing can change their mind.

Jisoo fans also joined the conversation. One user was about to “faint” seeing the singer playing a traditional instrument geomungo in the very beginning.

Another was happy for the amount of screen time she got.

One user credited Jennie for knowing how to start a song.

Another praised the minute details.

One user predicted a good season for football club Manchester United thanks to Jennie donning their jersey in the music video.

‘Pink Venom’ is one of many songs set to release as part of their upcoming album, which drops on September 16. Shortly after its release, the girl group will be off for an extensive world tour starting from October 15 in Seoul, South Korea.

They will be touring the US starting with Atlanta, Hamilton, Chicago, Newark, Los Angeles and then London, Barcelona, Cologne, Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam. Their tour will stretch into 2023 and in January they will perform in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Jakarta, Manila, Singapore, Melbourne, Sydney, and more.

Blackpink debuted in 2016 and consists of four members — Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo and Rose.
