Filipino alternative rock band Mayonnaise have released a brand-new song inspired by BLACKPINK singer Rosé.
Titled ‘Park Chae-Young’ in Hangul, the song is named for the K-pop idol’s Korean name, and appears on the band’s recently released album ‘Friends & Family’. The track also features fellow Filipino artists Chino David and Julia Daniel, and opens with a sample of the Korean singer.

Mayonnaise frontman Monty Macalino has long been outspoken about his admiration for BLACKPINK. In June, he released an acoustic guitar cover of the K-pop group’s 2018 song, ‘Really’, to celebrate the girl band’s comeback.
“Formally announcing my allegiance to the Blink Community through an acoustic cover of my favorite Blackpink song,” he wrote in the YouTube description. Check out the video below.
Mayonnaise released their eighth album ‘Friends & Family’ on Monday (November 30) as part of their 18-year anniversary celebrations. It included the previously released single ‘Ang Kutis’ with Barbie Almabis of Barbie’s Cradle. That song was inspired by Filipino actress Anne Curtis, whom Macalino met on the set of It’s Showtime.
“I thought Anne was very welcoming and pleasant with us, so she just became more beautiful as a person,” Macalino said. “When I got home, I was thinking of song ideas, and because I wanted to collab with Barbie, I thought this song would be a great fit for her. At the same time, it would be a tribute to Mayonnaise’s guesting [on It’s Showtime] and to Anne.”
Other guests on ‘Friends & Family’ were I Belong To The Zoo, Manila String Machine and rapper Gloc-9.
