The first one on our list is none other than BLACKPINK, who is widely known for their iconic line “BLACKPINK in your area” that fans have been hearing since their debut song “BOOMBAYAH.” The girls only include this phrase in their title tracks, so you may not be able to hear it in their other releases. The quartet also simply says “BLACKPINK!” sometimes, like in “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and “Pink Venom.”
