BLACKPINK’s ‘Shut Down’ Teaser Intrigues BLINKs After Unexpected Use of Classical Music

BLACKPINK released the music video teaser for their new title song “Shut Down,” and BLINKs cannot wait to hear it!

The 16-second background music playing in the “Shut Down” music video teaser is a classical masterpiece by the famous violinist Paganini. “La Campanella” has aroused the curiosity of many K-pop fans, not just BLINKs.

BLACKPINK’s ‘Shut Down’ Uses Classical Music

BLACKPINK’s “Shut Down” MV teaser started with only a violin instrumental for the sound while the video is of a place that looked abandoned.

Though it is colorful with all the lights and signs, it looks damaged or shut down. Also, the signs are all related to BLACKPINK and their previous hits, such as “Boombayah,” “Pretty Savage,” “Ddu Du Ddu Du,” and “Playing With Fire.” It also has a caution tape but with “BLACKPINK IN YOUR AREA.”

The video goes perfectly with the music as it is both scary and haunted. BLINKs are saying that it surprised them to hear the melody from BLACKPINK.

“Never thought one day I’d hear La Campanella in a Kpop song lol I’m hella intrigued.”

“It sounds so sinister for some reason the tune literally makes my heart race. If that makes sense.”

“This sounds promising and I like the lyrics ‘Keep watching me shut you down’. I can’t wait to hear the full song. When I heard the music, you’d think you’ll see some Brigderton vibes in the MV lol. I’m interested in how they’ll incorporate it in hiphop.”

“Classical music is one of the most beautiful music to come into existence. What’s there to not be excited about?”

In the clip, Lisa is wearing thick winter clothes with camouflage print and makes a gun sign that matches the music of the teaser.

BLACKPINK’s “Shut Down” MV teaser made the viewers intrigued, and is now around 8.2 million views.

Over YouTube comments section and theqoo, people are praising BLACKPINK and their forthcoming music.

“The ‘Shut Down’ really hits differently, the whole album is empowering and makes you suddenly dance in your room and be yourself.”

“Blackpink never disappoints, this looks amazing! I love how they have the name of their past songs on the wall. I can’t wait for this song!!!”

“But seriously isn’t Rose’s voice so good? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Rose’s voice makes me expect more from the song”
