BLACKPINK singer Rosé has teased that she has new music coming in the “not-too-distant future”, following the announcement of her new record deal.

BLACKPINK’s Rosé recently addressed her new record deal with South Korean label The Black Label in an Instagram post, where she apologised to fans for “the long wait” on news about her solo career. “I know some of you have been very eager to hear from me for a while.”

With her new deal with The Black Label, Rosé became the final member of BLACKPINK to set a path for her solo career after the girl group decided not to renew their individual contracts with YG Entertainment. Her fellow bandmates, meanwhile, have all launched their own companies.

“I personally didn’t want to speak or announce anything before I had everything aligned for my music to be out,” the singer explained. “As you all know, I have come from a place where more things have been done for me over doing things on my own. So, naturally, I need time to learn, understand, doubt and trust myself and others.”

Rosé the confirmed that she has been working on new music, revealing that she has been “been in and out of the studio almost every single day” from the end of 2023 and all throughout 2024. “To me, there is nothing more important than delivering to you what I absolutely love, which is music,” she added.

“This has been a year of drawing up a map and navigating to where I want to be and what I want to be doing going forward. It has been months of learning how to be an independent person for myself,” she continued. “I will have some other very exciting announcements in the not-too-distant future, but most importantly, I would love for everyone to be most excited for my music.”

Earlier this this year, prior to her signing with The Black Label, Rosé teased a new song called ‘vampirehollie’ on Instagram. “I know I’ve been away for a minute, but I’ve been working really hard on some things that I’m really excited about,” she wrote at the time. “I cannot wait for you all to hear everything.”
