Black Pinks As If Its Your Last Is An Effective Summer Song

Nearly 7 months since their last dual title tracks through the SQUARE series, Black Pink is back with an upbeat summer hit whilst preparing for their SQUARE THREE release. Along with a chock full of bright colours, ostentatious outfits and seasonal motifs, As If Its Your Last lyrically captures the youthful spontaneity of summer.

The song starts off with a colour palette that matches the groups namesake before it starts to become interspersed with cheery summer colours. It also starts off with the beat that is reminiscent of Boombayah but progresses to be more lively than its predecessor. The mish-mash of vibrant sets is a signature of YG and for a song like this, the calculated chaos works to enhance the MV rather than distract the viewer.
