“This is my first time coming to you as Jennie,” she said, adding she wanted to show a more “sincere and different side” of her with the new song.

Released at 6 p.m. Monday, “Solo” is a hip-hop number with pop elements and lyrics about a strong and independent woman who doesn’t get tied down by the pain of a breakup. “I am sorry that I am not sorry. From today on, I am a shining solo,” the lyrics go.

“There are a lot of dramatic scenes in the music video. It was my first time trying acting,” Jennie said, adding that it took her about three minutes to shed tears for a sobbing scene.

The singer also revealed that she wore all of 20 outfits that she had prepared for the shoot.

Other members of Black Pink rooted for Jennie, leaving encouraging comments on the V app.

“All my bandmates are watching me now. Thank you and I love you all!” Jennie said.

“Have you listened to it already? Thank you,” he said. “I am doing music that I like to do.”

Asked to choose his favorite track, he first chose “Blind” and then “Sometime,” only to correct himself again right away. “I really like all of the tracks that I worked on,” he said.
