At BLACKPINK's first live stream concert 'THE SHOW', which was held on January 31, Rosé's solo song 'GONE' was pre-released. YG also revealed that, "All the music video filming for Rosé's solo album title track are done. It is a large-scale MV that spent huge production costs, so we are doing our best to improve the completeness of the music video. We're going to officially announce the album release schedule soon."
As a result, domestic and international attention are focused on Rosé's solo debut. Forbes, a U.S. economic magazine, even picked Rosé as one of the "K-Pop solo stars that will surprise the U.S. in 2021".
