BLACKPINK's Jennie Confirms the Group Is Preparing for a Comeback and Upcoming Tour
The singer also shares future solo music plans.
Jennie started off by reflecting on how difficult the past few years have been before confirming future plans. “I became sick, both mentally and physically, after the last world tour ended [in 2020],” she told the publication in regards to the tour in 2020. “For three years after debuting, we worked nonstop without resting. You know, we were young, in our early 20s. Our sleep systems were breaking down; we weren’t eating properly; I wasn’t hydrating myself — we did that for three to four years, and then started our tour. We were on tour for a year and a half. For a year and a half I didn’t have a home.”
Nowadays, she’s making sure she prioritizes her well-being. “When I work out, I feel each and every muscle and ask, ‘This hurts, why?’” she continued. “These days, because we’re preparing for our comeback and planning our tour, I think every day, ‘OK, how do I prepare myself for my next busy two years?’”
Additionally, the 26-year-old shared an update on her solo music. Jennie was the first BLACKPINK member to release a solo track with 2018’s “Solo,” and it looks like she’s only getting started.
“I’m curious about what kind of vocals I’m capable of. [In the trainee days] I used to practice with R&B and more soulful songs,” she said. “I like mellow, quiet music, too. I want to try a lot of different things. I’m still discovering my own color. I love vocals, rap, dance — I can contain all of that in a single song. I have that diversity. Jennie in BLACKPINK has a limited image, but I have so many other things I like. There’s a lot of things I can do. The Jennie you’ve seen so far has been practice.”
