It has only been a few weeks since Jennie Kim of BLACKPINK left YG Entertainment, started her own label, OA, for individual projects, and she’s reportedly preparing for a solo song already. So, will this become the start of Jennie’s rising momentum as a solo singer? And was YG really holding her back all this time? Let’s dive deeper into Jennie’s solo endeavor in the following discussion.
Jennie Kim of BLACKPINK is Reportedly Preparing for a Solo Song
BLACKPINK’s brilliant rapper-vocalist and entrepreneur, Jennie Kim, is reportedly preparing for another solo song.
On January 9, BLACKPINK’s Jennie Kim posted a now-deleted photo in her Instagram story. The photo showed a card with a greeting note for the BLACKPINK member and another person named James.
“Have a great session, James and Jennie!”
In addition to the greeting message, the card showed a fine print of one of the famous recording studios in Los Angeles, United States, Chalice. This card reportedly confirmed that Jennie had visited the Chalice Recording Studio in LA.
Yet, what’s more exciting is that the James mentioned in the message was the James Fauntleroy. He is a prominent American producer behind international American artists, including Beyoncé, Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Drake. On top of that, he had also been a long-time Grammy Awards winner in the songwriter category.
Netizens found that James’ Instagram story had also posted an Instagram story, showing similar signs. According to some reports, James’ IG story showed he had been in the same studio as Jennie Kim.
Therefore, these signs have triggered a massive anticipation of an epic collaboration between the two artists.
Was YG Holding Her Back All This Time?
Along with the massive anticipation, these possible signs of a new solo song from BLACKPINK’s Jennie Kim spark new curiosity among fans.
After all, it has only been a few weeks since Jennie left YG and founded ODDATELIER for her individual projects, and she’s already brought the good news. This new development signals that Jennie Kim of BLACKPINK seems to have a preference for working in a more fast-paced environment. And it was definitely not something that was in line with her previous agency, YG Entertainment.
So, was YG Entertainment actually holding her back and slowing her down all this time? Was the company actually unable to handle all 4 BLACKPINK members at the same time?
Over the last 7 years of contract with YG, BLACKPINK has very few discographies despite its global reputation. Not only that, but each member only has very few opportunities for solo album releases despite their high-value individual brands.
Today, after leaving YG Entertainment and managing her own solo projects, Jennie can finally work at her own pace. Only a few weeks into establishing her own company and Jennie Kim of BLACKPINK is already preparing for a new solo song.
No more chains and no more limitations. Welcome to the new era of soloist Jennie Kim.
“I carefully set up OA because I wanted to do my personal activities more freely and comfortably.
I learned so much from YG, a company I had been with since my trainee days. It made me wonder what I could do on my own. Therefore, I believe it was time to take a risk and challenge myself.”BLACKPINK Jennie.
Finally, what do you think about this new update? Do you believe that YG Entertainment had been putting invisible chains on the BLACKPINK members as well?
And how excited are you to welcome this new era of Jennie Kim? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
