BLACKPINK’s Rosé shares an emotional Paramore cover

The K-pop star, who recently dropped her debut solo album R, performed ‘The Only Exception’

On Tuesday (July 13), BLACKPINK’s Rosé appeared on South Korean variety show Sea of Hope. During the programme, the K-pop star performed an acoustic cover of “The Only Exception” by Paramore

Rosé performed the emotional song at the TV show’s intimate outdoor beach stage in front of a small crowd. The Korean-Australian singer sat on the ground playing acoustic guitar, accompanied by one other guitar player and a keyboardist.

Last month, Rosé covered John Mayer’s “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room” on the show, which Mayer said was “gorgeous” on Twitter after the performance went viral.

In March, Rosé released her first solo album, R, which sold over half a million copies in the month since its release – making Rosé the first South Korean female soloist to do so in 19 years. The album features singles “Gone” and “On the Ground”. 

Otherwise, BLACKPINK is releasing its five-year anniversary film – BLACKPINK THE MOVIE – in August, which will feature exclusive interviews and re-edited concert footage of the K-pop group. The film will be one part of the band’s new “4+1 Project” which celebrates five years since their Square One debut in 2016. Details of the remaining four parts of the “4+1 Project” are yet to be confirmed.
