MENT STAY MENT – INTRO Playing With Fire MENT As If It’s Your Last MENT ENCORE: BOOMBAYAH
After WHISTLE, BLACKPINK was supposed to sing STAY but had to calm down the crowd first because there were so much pushing. They didn’t introduce themselves until after STAY ended. They also initiated the students to sing/chant their school hymm/theme. There was technical problem near the end of BOOMBAYAH so BLACKPINK had to sing with an accompaniment during the outro. After the encore stage, BLACKPINK took commemorative photos with the audience which were eventually uploaded onto their Instagram account.
On the 31st of March, around 10PM KST, BLACKPINK’s music video for ‘PLAYING WITH FIRE’ has reached 200M YouTube views. Moreover, ‘STAY’ music video has also achieved 100M views on YouTube as of April 2, around 12:30PM KST. With this, BLACKPINK has ALL of their MVs reach over 100M views each!
