BLACKPINK star Rosé has curated a playlist for Apple Music, in conjunction with International Women’s Day (March 8).
Titled ‘Visionary Women’, the playlist features songs from a slew of female artists including SZA, Amy Winehouse, Jorja Smith, Sabrina Claudio, Mariah Carey, Nina Simone, Rihanna, as well as iconic girl groups such as Destiny’s Child and TLC. Stevie Wonder’s ‘Isn’t She Lovely’ and Harry Styles’ ‘Adore You’ are also featured in Rosé’s 25-song playlist.
According to the playlist’s description, the selected songs revolve around the themes of love and heartbreak. One of the tracks is Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ cut, ‘Love Is A Losing Game’, which Rosé dubbed as the “saddest song ever”.
“It hurts my heart every time I hear it,” she told Apple Music. “I think that being able to be vulnerable is the most independent thing someone can be at times, and I commend her for her honesty and transparency in this song. We can all relate to her, and that’s why we all love her.”
