Rosé could well be crowned the new queen of 2000s pop as the Blackpink member showed just how well she could cover classic pop hits. The Korean singer, known for speaking English well, revealed she can belt out all types of songs.
In the recent weeks, the singer has been praised repeatedly as she covered one classic 2000s hit after another, perfectly, while giving the songs her own distinct flavor. Her covers included John Mayer's "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room," She also made one of Paramore's "The Only Exception."
On Tuesday however, after collaborating with fellow K-pop stars Onew of SHINee and Lee Suhyun of AKMU on a cover of Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You, the output certainly went viral.
The trio's seaside performance of the powerful ballad hailing from Keys' second album, 2003's "The Diary of Alicia Keys" - aired on the South Korean variety show "Sea of Hope" but made waves around the world.
The rendition has garnered 150,000 likes and counting. Thousands of comments on the song's YouTube page revealed how much fans loved the cover.
"Suhyun's singing is dessert, Rose's voice is chef's kiss and onew's vocal is cherry on the top ... the whole delicious dish served," gushed one fan. Many also said Rose's high notes particularly gave them goosebumps.
Suhyun opened with the first verse as Rosé, which was on the side, studied the lyrics off of her phone before launching her part and her undoubtedly, shining moment.
Rosé voice backed by a slow piano groove, revealed just how well she can sing. She made a soaring take on the second verse, all the while making sure she does not make a mistake on the lyrics as she read them off her phone. "Some people search for a fountain/Promises forever young/Some people need three dozen roses/And that's the only way to prove you love them," she sang.
Onew snuck his way into the outro, and then the trio harmonized in an emotional way. It was also tearjerking to watch and hear.
"Some people want diamond rings/Some just want everything/But everything means nothing/If I ain't got you, yeah," the trio sang.
Rose resided in an English speaking country for the first 14 years of her life and only moved back to Korea to audition. Therefore, Rosé is completely fluent and confident in the language, as can be seen in how she handles interviews in English and all these collabs and covers.
