Le Weeknd est « vraiment fier » de Jennie de BLACKPINK sur « The Idol »


The Weeknd’s New HBO Series Features K-Pop Star Jennie

The Weeknd’s new HBO drama series, « The Idol, » co-created and co-led by the singer himself, is set to premiere on June 4th. The show, directed by « Euphoria » creator Sam Levinson, features a star-studded cast, including Lily Rose-Depp, Troye Sivan, Moses Sumney, Dan Levy, and Jennie Ruby Jane. Jennie, who is a member of the K-pop group BLACKPINK, is the only woman in the cast with a legitimate pop music career.

In an interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe, The Weeknd praised Jennie’s performance on the show, saying, « It’s important that we got someone like Jennie who understands this world. A lot of these musicians, like myself, are non-actors, and we all understand the world… We’re all tapping into a place. And I think Jennie does it incredibly well on the show. I’m really proud of her. »

As a member of BLACKPINK, Jennie has achieved record-breaking commercial success across streaming, sales, and touring. The group is currently on their Born Pink World Tour, which will see them perform in 21 different countries across four continents. The tour is in support of their sophomore studio album, « Born Pink, » which became their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Jennie’s Success in the Music Industry

Jennie’s success in the music industry is undeniable. As a member of BLACKPINK, she has become a global sensation, breaking records and earning numerous accolades. The group’s music videos have amassed billions of views on YouTube, and their songs have topped charts around the world.

Jennie’s talent as a performer has also been recognized outside of BLACKPINK. She has collaborated with other artists, including G-Dragon and Lee Hi, and has released solo music as well. Her debut single, « Solo, » was a massive hit, earning over 600 million views on YouTube and becoming the first song by a Korean female solo artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify.

The Intersection of Music and Television

« The Idol » is just one example of the intersection of music and television. With more and more musicians branching out into acting and producing, and with shows like « Empire » and « Nashville » featuring original music, the lines between the two industries are becoming increasingly blurred.

Jennie’s role on « The Idol » is a testament to her versatility as an artist. As The Weeknd noted in his interview, musicians and actors alike are tapping into a shared creative space. With her success in both the music and television industries, Jennie is a prime example of this trend.
