BABYMONSTER is gearing for their official debut on April 1, 2024, with the mini-album “BABYMONS7ER.” To hype up the release of the album and its lead single, “SHEESH,” YG Entertainment has been releasing both photo and video teasers of the members.

However, their most recent release is being compared to Lisa’s teaser for “LALISA.” Keep on reading for all the details.

Did BABYMONSTER Copy BLACKPINK Lisa ‘LALISA’ MV Teaser for ‘SHEESH’?

On March 28, 2024, YG Entertainment dropped the teaser for BABYMONSTER’s “SHEESH” music video. The 20-second teaser unveils a highly sophisticated visual accompanied by a dynamic and explosive melody. The teaser garnered over 1.2 million views within just half a day of its release.

The teaser suggests that BABYMONSTER’s concept this time around leans towards a slightly lavish, luxurious, and “cool” direction. However, for BLINKs, the teaser might evoke a sense of déjà vu as it highly resembles the group’s concept.

As YG Entertainment continues to “borrow” BLACKPINK’s viral style for BABYMONSTER, heavy debate has sparked among fans of both groups. Some question whether the agency is once again trying to pass down the iconic concept of a global girl group to their rookies in the hopes of creating a second BLACKPINK.

However, that is not the only thing YG Entertainment is accused of “copying” from BLACKPINK for BABYMONSTER. Many claim that the company is poising Ahyeon to be the label’s second Jennie.

K-Netz Debate on Whether BABYMONSTER ‘SHEESH’ Will Be Successful

Though “SHEESH” has yet to be released, there are concerns that it might be a challenging song for the public to digest. If it is not a hit with the general public, it can potentially hinder BABYMONSTER’s performance on digital music charts.

Though the song will likely possess YG Entertainment’s strong signature hip-hop sound, not having Teddy work on the song might pose a flaw for the rookie group. Nonetheless, the mini-album’s intro has generated considerable anticipation, hinting at the potential for the group’s viral success.

In the ongoing “great rookie war” of this year, HYBE’s new girl group, ILLIT, has taken the lead with a captivating debut. HYBE’s adeptness at creating trending music has positioned them favorably in the industry. Hence, YG Entertainment and BABYMONSTER face the challenge of having a breakthrough debut to reclaim their standing after two underwhelming releases.
