Some netizens also think that The Weeknd’s song has hidden meanings about his relationship with Jennie (BLACKPINK).
Recently, The Weeknd , Travis Scott and Bad Bunny released a collaboration song called Kpop that has caused an uproar among people. In Korea, the song became a hot topic of discussion because the title was aimed directly at the cutting-edge music industry, but the lyrics were unrelated. Not stopping there, some netizens also said that The Weeknd’s song had hidden meanings about his relationship with Jennie (BLACKPINK), making the controversy go further.
The Weeknd mentions Jennie in new song?
Specifically, the lyrics have a number of keywords such as “Korean”, “Cannes” and especially the title Kpop – leading to the closest connection to main rapper BLACKPINK. Recently, Jennie participated in the Cannes Film Festival to promote the movie The Idol and has a close friendship with The Weeknd. What makes people argue is that Kpop songs revolve entirely around sensitive issues, which certainly directly affect Jennie’s image.
Regarding the title Kpop, this is a misleading name as it does not represent Kpop music or the Korean music industry.
Not to let the controversy go too far, BLINKs immediately presented counter-evidence that the rumors that The Weeknd was secretly talking about Jennie in the new song were unfounded. Specifically, about the title Kpop , this is a misleading name as it does not represent “Kpop music” or the Korean music industry, but is an acronym for K******* Lollipop. (candy contains stimulants). The clearest evidence is that the song’s single cover depicts a lollipop, and the page posting the lyrics also mentioned and explained the above phrase.
Second, the rumor that The Weeknd wrote lyrics related to Jennie is completely absurd. In the lyrics, there is a segment mentioning Cannes and Saint Tropez. Jennie’s schedule at that time, she only appeared in Cannes between May 22 and 26 to participate in movie promotion, unprecedented. present in Saint Tropez.
In the lyrics, there is a passage mentioning Cannes and Saint Tropez, but she only appeared in Cannes for the film festival and was never in Saint Tropez.
Furthermore, The Weeknd’s current girlfriend – Simi Khadra is also Jennie’s best friend. Simi and The Weeknd were present in the south of France (including Saint Tropez) on May 19. Then on the 2 days from May 25 to 27, Simi shared photos of going out with The Weeknd, this trip did not include Jennie because on the afternoon of May 26, Jennie had to fly to Thailand to perform the Born Pink concert .
While The Weeknd and his girlfriend were hanging out in France, Jennie went to Thailand to perform Born Pink
The phrase “Lil yachty” is said to imply that Jennie is actually The Weeknd, referring to an American rapper who is a friend of the male singer. The Kpop song was revealed by Travis Scott on May 29, the same week of the Cannes Film Festival. The process of producing a song is not simple, so Kpop is said to have to be perfected by the artist group for at least a month. The timelines don’t match, so alluding to Jennie in The Weeknd’s song is malicious, especially at a time when Jennie is surrounded by a series of criticisms after The Idol .
