“Four years ago, we were invited to perform for you guys here at Coachella over there at the Sahara Tent, and that made a mark in all of our hearts and made us remember the passion performing for you guys. Thank you so much. I feel like the reason all four of us are here is all because of you guys.”BLACKPINK Rosé.
The quartet’s highlights included the hip-hop bangers Kick It, Whistle, Pink Venom, and How You Like That.
