BLACKPINK has been performing in your region since 2016, and over the course of the last seven years, they have compiled a formidable back catalog of music that include world-beating bangers as well as soft moments of sadness — tracks that led to them headlining Coachella in 2023.
It’s true that BLACKPINK’s sassy K-pop bangers have propelled them to the top of the largest stages in the globe, but here are some hidden treasures from their back catalog.
There are songs that broke records as singles and anthems at festivals, as well as songs that don’t get the acclaim they deserve but should. The following list, which is presented in no particular order, contains our choices for BLACKPINK’s top 10 most undervalued songs.
‘THE HAPPIEST GIRL’ (‘BORN PINK’)
BLACKPINK’s reputation for creating massive, dance-floor-ready bangers disqualifies them from producing delicate ballads. But ‘The Happiest Girl’ from 2022’s ‘Born Pink’ demonstrated that they could also tug at our heartstrings in addition to making us perform.
‘SEE U LATER’ (‘SQUARE UP’ EP)
BLACKPINK have numerous songs about remaining true to oneself and kicking dumb boys to the curb, but ‘See U Later’ does so in a particularly vicious manner. Lisa taunts at one point “Now you ain’t got no best friend / You’ll spend a lonely weekend. Yeah, you loser, bad guy wannabe.”
‘KISS AND MAKE UP’ (‘DUA LIPA (COMPLETE EDITION)’)
Despite the fact that this is technically a Dua Lipa song on which BLACKPINK is featured, it remains relatively obscure in the K-pop superstars’ discography. This collaboration between global pop titans is sizzling, a tale of lust set to a scorching instrumental.
‘DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO’ (‘KILL THIS LOVE’ EP)
It’s true that ‘Don’t Know What To Do’ receives a bit more attention than the other songs on this list, but that’s not enough considering how amazing it is. It is a nearly ideal pop song that is full of longing and melancholy but has a soaring, piercing backing. Stunning.
‘LOVE TO HATE ME’ (‘THE ALBUM’)
On ‘Love To Hate Me,’ BLACKPINK ventures into icy terrain. They tell someone who has been messing with them, “You ain’t worth my love if you only love to hate me,” and the instrumental drops its temperature to match, accompanying them with minimal layers and no warmth at all.

‘STAY’ (‘SQUARE TWO’ EP)
BLACKPINK may have debuted with the ebullient, ferocious ‘Boombayah’ and ‘Whistle,’ but their debut EP also featured this more subdued, string-laden introduction to the then-new girl group. The song “Stay” evolves from guitar and harmonica to bubbly handclaps while retaining its decorum and elegance.
‘BET YOU WANNA (FEAT. CARDI B)’ (‘THE ALBUM’)
It is baffling that a collaboration with a superstar like Cardi B could be underrated. ‘Bet You Wanna’ is, however, overshadowed when it comes to celebrating the songs on BLACKPINK’s debut album. It is light, playful, and flirtatious, making it the ideal song for holiday romance fantasizing.
‘KICK IT’ (‘KILL THIS LOVE’ EP)
The ‘Kill This Love’ EP stretched the boundaries of BLACKPINK’s accessible pop, incorporating subtle innovation. The sonics of “Kick It,” in which the ladies sing about independence and freedom, defy the obvious.
‘REALLY’ (‘SQUARE UP’ EP)
Summer is the season for which BLACKPINK is best suited. The song “Really” exemplifies this with its tropical-tinged, laid-back hip-hop rhythms. In this song, Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa confront a lover and ask them to affirm their true emotions, which is a somewhat less relaxed message.
‘HOPE NOT’ (‘KILL THIS LOVE’ EP)
Another uncommon soft entry in BLACKPINK’s catalog, ‘Hope Not’ is set to sparse acoustic guitar, with the band’s emotive delivery filling the void. “You need to meet someone better than me and be happy,” they sing resignedly in the chorus. “But I hope not to the point where you forget me.”
