BLACKPINK Rosé's Solo Album Helps Her Realize How Meaningful Her Members Are To Her

She also reveals how each member showed their support.

BLACKPINK Rosé recently released her solo album, R. Although it is an album she is extremely proud of, she couldn’t help but reveal that it only made her treasure her members more.

"The members did the things I had to do, together with me. But (in a solo album), the things I have to do and take responsibility for increases as well, so I think I hugely felt that empty space. While preparing for the solo promotions, I felt it even more so that there’s so much to learn from while promoting as a group."

Rosé shared that it was through R that she truly realized how precious the growth and development as a group was to her, as well as how precious the members themselves were.

Of course, the girls of BLACKPINK thoroughly encouraged Rosé in the preparation process for her solo.

"The members each cheered me on a lot. I felt just how much strength others’ support gives you. I felt even more reassured. Jennie unnie gave me gifts cutely and video called me. Jisoo unnie told me how happy she was (for me) while saying I should do everything I want to during these promotions. Lisa also went around saying to the staff how cool I was. I was very thankful."

— Rosé

What a sweet friendship these girls share! Make sure to catch “On The Ground” below and show some love.
