“Born Pink,” which is set to release on Sept. 16, features a total of eight songs, just like the YG Entertainment girl group’s first album, “The Album,” back in 2020. Aside from the title track “Shut Down” and the prereleases “Pink Venom” and “Ready For Love,” the highly anticipated album includes “Typa Girl,” “Hard to Love,” “The Happiest Girl,” Tally” and “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” with the last track notably crediting members Jisoo and Rosé. This marks Jisoo’s second songwriting credit following her hand in their title track “Lovesick Girls” from “The Album.”
While fans are happy to see BLACKPINK members getting credits on songs, some are expressing their frustration over the absence of two rumored songs from Jennie and Rosé, which OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder was involved with.
Ryan Tedder isn’t in the credits at all, so that means NONE of the music JENNIE and ROSÉ made in LA was included in the album… Ryan even said that the girls basically made those songs on their own. YG doesn’t want the girls to see success or get credit for literally anything
