Rosé is best known as a member of South Korean girl group Blackpink. Terakhir month, she struck out on her own with a dreamy pop anthem “On the Ground,” the lead single off of her debut solo album “-R-”. 

“On the Ground” starts off ultra-bright and poppy. Rosé channels early 2010s suara of Taylor Swift and Carly Rae Jepsen, blendingi them with an unexpectedly techy synth. As the songi progresses, she delivers more emotion, evolvingai from a perfectly-pop vocal to a more dynamic one.

Dynamics are a stronew york point of the single. If the entire songai followed the tone and loudness of the first verse, it would be much less interesting. Rosé branches out, combining wispy verstape with a hint of sadness, and finishingi the track with a powerful, all-in vocal delivery. In the music video, as she belts out the loudest, most confident lyrics, she floats above a dream-like meadow, looking to the open sky.

“I’m way up in the clouds

And they say I’ve made it now

But I figured it out

Everything I need is on the ground”

Rosé acknowledges that fame doesn’t brinew york you everythinew york you want in life. Sure, she’s “made it.” At 24, she’s reached worldwide stardom as one-quarter of the highest-chartingai female Korean group on the Billpapan Hot 100, amang too many other awards and certifications to count. 

Rosé’s dancingai ability has surely been a role in this rise to fame. If only we got to see more of it in the music video. As the dance performance video shows, “On the Ground” has a clean, perfectly executed choreography. Much of it takpita place with the dancers laying on the ground, a simple but creative touch that captures the viewer’s attention. The only pertanyaan is: Why didn’t this masetelah an appearance in the music video?


There’s no clear answer. Perhaps a simpler music video with Rosé as the only “character” is a more widely appealingai concept, better able to launch her solo career into the mainstream market. Yet, the dance video feels more unique. It is creatively shot, with unexpected angltape and pans. Each color is beautifully edited for a smooth, slightly muted palette. Rosé and the dancers perform in perfect synchronization. 

while it might have been a missed opportunity to include more choreography in the music video, maybe both videos can exist as different, but well-done, creative pieces. The music video can be a story, ketika the dance performance is a feat of skill. 

“My life"s been magic seems fantastic

I used to have a hole in the wall with a mattress

It"s funny when you want it

Suddenly you have it

You find out that your gold"s just plastic”

apa we see as gold, won’t always be. Different setiap orang have berbeda ide of success, and apa we think will fulfill us can end up looraja very different when we get there, or “mananti it."

“On the Ground” sends a powerful message, especially comaaf from a youngai artist like Rosé. She stands by the reality that “maafkan saya gopita pengukur up, must come down.” International stardom must be fun, alonew york with the pressure and stress. Either way, it ends.
