As part of promotions for “On the Ground”, BLACKPINK Rosé is set to make her second U.S. television appearance as a soloist next week.
As well as smashing the charts in South Korea, Rosé’s solo debut song “On the Ground” is taking over the U.S. too. This week, the track debuted at no.70 on the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing CL’s “Lifted” (which peaked at no.94) to become the highest-ranking Korean female soloist song on the chart.
Rosé got her first chance to perform “On the Ground” on U.S. television shortly after the song was released when she appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In just one week, her performance surpassed a staggering 4 million views on YouTube. Now, she’s about to make her second solo television appearance in the country.
According to a new press release, Rosé will appear on next week’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show as an interview guest. The daytime variety talk show is described as a fun and energetic broadcast that mixes celebrity interviews with musical performances and segments of everyday people. Given the current pandemic situation, it’s likely that Rosé will appear on the show via video feed.
Host Kelly Clarkson, an American singer, will also be interviewing Grey’s Anatomy actress Camilla Luddington, television host Andy Cohen, and celebrity chef Melissa King to the show. Plus, there’ll be a performance by American singer Breland. As of now, it’s unclear whether Rosé will be performing alongside her interview.
Rosé’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show will air on NBC on Monday, March 29 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
