6 OCTOBER 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – Today marks the massively anticipated release of Special Single "You & Me" — the new double single from JENNIE of BLACKPINK. Released via YG Entertainment/Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the double single includes the original version of JENNIE’s anthemic dance-pop stunner as well as “You & Me (Coachella Version)” — a rap-enhanced redux of her show-stopping performance of the track during BLACKPINK’s Coachella 2023 headlining set. Accompanied by an all-new exclusive dance performance video from JENNIE, Special Single "You & Me" also features cover art created in collaboration with Naoko Takeuchi, the famed creator of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Go HERE to listen to Special Single "You & Me" by JENNIE now.
First unveiled during her solo set on the opening night of the history-making BORN PINK WORLD TOUR, “You & Me” is a special release shared by JENNIE to gratify fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting her next solo project. With its bouncy rhythms and explosive synth lines, the single brings JENNIE’s beguiling vocals and super-smooth flow to a fierce yet full-hearted love song. On “You & Me (Coachella Version),” meanwhile, JENNIE delivers a dynamic reimagining of the track, complete with an additional rap section and an extended dance break. Both stadium-sized and dance-floor-ready, “You & Me” serves up more of the larger-than-life star power JENNIE previously showcased on her solo debut single “SOLO” — a 2018 smash that made JENNIE the first female solo artist to top the iTunes Worldwide Song Chart, along with hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart.
Also today, JENNIE shares an exclusive dance performance video of “You & Me.” Premiering on BLACKPINK’s official YouTube channel, the video recreates the spectacular choreography seen on BORN PINK WORLD TOUR but offers an entirely different experience from the live stage. As a gift to her fans for their tremendous support, JENNIE created a visual of exceptional quality, going above and beyond the typical dance video and selecting an eclectic mix of sets that perfectly capture the song’s dreamy yet intense mood. In addition, JENNIE implemented a signature style for the “You & Me” dance performance video, incorporating ballet-inspired attire as well as hairstyles reminiscent of the striking album art. Watch the video HERE.
Already a live favorite among fans, “You & Me” arrives on the heels of BLACKPINK’s recent single “The Girls,” an August release that debuted on THE GAME (the group’s hugely popular mobile game). Accompanied by an animated video, the upbeat and empowering track dropped just over a year after BLACKPINK’s record-breaking sophomore album BORN PINK — a 2022 LP that became the first album by a female group to claim the top spot on the Billboard 200 in over a decade (as well as the first album by a K-pop girl group to land at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and the UK Albums Chart).
One of today’s most influential female artists, JENNIE is a singer, rapper, actor, and fashion icon who’s made a global impact since debuting with BLACKPINK in 2016. As one of Gen Z’s most prominent figures, she boasts 81.6 followers on Instagram and 10 million subscribers on YouTube.
One of the most massively successful K-pop groups in music history, BLACKPINK have redefined the global pop landscape since first bursting onto the scene in 2016. Along with boasting the No. 1 most-subscribed artist channel on YouTube, the South Korean quartet has achieved such boundary-defying milestones as scoring the highest-charting album by a female group in over a decade and becoming the first K-pop girl group ever to perform at Coachella (the largest music festival in the U.S.). Comprised of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA — all immensely charismatic vocalists, dancers, and fast-rising fashion icons — BLACKPINK began their meteoric rise with their 2016 debut SQUARE ONE and further proved their crossover power with SQUARE UP (a 2018 release that quickly cracked the Billboard 200). Soon after signing with Interscope Records through a global partnership with YG Entertainment, the group made their full-length debut with 2020’s immediately iconic THE ALBUM. THE ALBUM shot to No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and landed three singles on the Billboard Hot 100: “How You Like That” (a seismic single that shattered several YouTube records, including fastest video to cross 150 million views), “Ice Cream” (a collaboration with Selena Gomez that broke the record for highest-charting female K-pop group on the Hot 100), and “Lovesick Girls” (a track that’s sold over 1.4 million copies worldwide, making BLACKPINK the first K-pop girl group to sell over a million units). Through the years, BLACKPINK have also garnered a number of major awards (including three E! People’s Choice Awards and the Best Metaverse Performance at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, where Lisa emerged as the first K-pop soloist to win Best K-pop Act), collaborated with superstars like Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga, performed on “The Tonight Show,” and starred in BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky (a 2020 film hailed by the New York Times as an “endearing documentary that emphasizes each member’s individuality”). With over 9 billion career Spotify streams to date, BLACKPINK are now conquering the world with their sophomore album BORN PINK and recently toured the entire planet on the BORN PINK WORLD TOUR — the most-attended concert tour by a K-pop girl group in history.
