The video for ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ was released onto YouTube last June – watch it below.
NME recently crowned ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ as BLACKPINK’s best song in our ranking of the band’s output, with Rhian Daly writing: “Like ‘Boombayah’,‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ shines brightest in the rappers’ verses, Jennie boasting in hers, “All of your bucket list, I bought it” and Lisa bragging: “Our hands are full of a fat check/If you’re curious, fact check.”
“It’s a no-holds-barred, powerful anthem packed full of supreme self-confidence and swagger.”
Earlier this year, BLACKPINK shared a new live album, ‘BLACKPINK 2018 Tour In Your Area Seoul’. It followed April EP ‘Kill This Love’, of which NME wrote: “The K-pop sensations have a great record in them. This five-track EP might not quite be that record, but it does demonstrate their breadth of creativity.”
