Life and careerEdit

1997–2015: Early life and career beginningsEdit

Roseanne Park (Korean박채영; Park Chae-young) was born on 11 February 1997[6][7] in Auckland, New Zealand, to South Korean immigrant parents.[8] She has an older sister. In 2004, at the age of seven, Rosé and her family moved to Melbourne, Australia.[9] Rosé initially attended Kew East Primary School graduating in 2009, attending Canterbury Girls' Secondary College in Melbourne for her secondary schooling.[4] She began singing and learned to play guitar and piano as a child and performed in church choirs.[9][4]

In 2012, 15-year-old Rosé attended an audition in Sydney, Australia for South Korean record label YG Entertainment at her father's suggestion[9] ranking first among 700 participants.[10][11] She was a big fan of YG Entertainment, citing they had all the "cool" groups.[12] Within two months, she dropped out of school, signed with the label as a trainee and moved to Seoul.[4] She initially presumed her father's idea was a joke due to the distance and difficulty of becoming a singer overseas, stating:

In Australia, I didn't think that there was much of a chance for me to become a singer, especially to become a K-pop star... I was living so far from the country that it never really occurred to me as a possibility.[9]

The same year, Rosé was given an opportunity to feature on labelmate G-Dragon's song "Without You" off his EP One of a Kind (2012). Her name was not publicised at the time of release with her credit revealed following her announcement as a Blackpink member.[13] The song peaked at number ten on South Korea's Gaon Music Chart and at number 15 on the Billboard Korea K-pop Hot 100.[14][15]

2016–present: Debut with Blackpink and REdit

Rosé trained at YG Entertainment for four years before her announcement as a member of Blackpink in June 2016. She was the last member to be revealed amongst the four.[16] She debuted on 8 August 2016, with the single album Square One, which produced the lead singles "Whistle" and "Boombayah".[17]

The singer has also appeared on a variety of broadcast programmes such as music shows King of Masked Singer and Fantastic Duo 2. Her vocal performance on King of Masked Singer was met with a warm reception by the audience, to which Rosé commented that she "didn't know if the audience would like [her] singing" and that she felt "happy and relieved" at the positive result.[8] Rosé later appeared as a performer on the second season of Fantastic Duo. The show's production staff stated that her appearance was intended to "reveal Rosé's vocal appeal, which is different from Blackpink".[18]

On 2 June 2020, it was announced that Rosé would debut solo following the release of Blackpink's first Korean language full-length album.[19][20] On 30 December 2020, in an interview with South Korean media outlet Osen, her label revealed that filming for her debut music video would begin in mid-January 2021.[21] On 26 January 2021, a promotional teaser of Rosé's solo debut was released, revealing that a preview of her solo debut would be revealed through Blackpink Livestream Concert: The Show on 31 January 2021.[22][23] Shortly after the performance, Rosé's solo, titled "Gone" gained positive feedback from Korean news website My Daily.[24]

Rosé's debut single album, entitled R, was released on 12 March 2021.[25] Upon release, with 41.6 million views in 24 hours on her lead single "On the Ground", she currently holds the title as the most viewed South Korean music video of a soloist in 24 hours after breaking the almost 8-year record of former labelmate Psy's "Gentleman".[26] "On the Ground" peaked at number 70 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the highest-charting song by a Korean female soloist in the US. The song also debuted and peaked at number 1 on both the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts, the first song by a Korean solo artist to do so in the charts' histories.[27] R also set the record for the highest first-week sales by a Korean female soloist with 448,089 copies sold.[28] On 24 March, Rosé received her first-ever music show win as a soloist with her single "On the Ground" through South Korean cable music program, Show Champion, and would go on to win five more.[29] On 5 April, the music video for Rosé's song "Gone" was released.[30]

ArtistryEdit

InfluenceEdit

Through a radio interview, the singer cited her labelmate senior Taeyang of Big Bang as a role model towards her musical career.[31] Rosé also considered American singer Tori Kelly as an inspiration towards her musical style.[32] Rosé's voice has received acknowledgement in the K-pop industry for its distinct vocal timbre, following her debut as a member of Blackpink.[33] Following Rosé's performance on an episode of Fantastic Duo 2, South Korean singer Gummy, whom Rosé cited as a musical role model,[18] stated that "[Rosé's] voice is so unique, it's the [type of] voice young people love".[34]

Other venturesEdit

In 2018, Rosé and fellow Blackpink member Jisoo were selected as endorsement models for the South Korean cosmetics brand Kiss Me.[35] In October 2019, Rosé was revealed as a promotional model for the Perfect World Entertainment's MMORPG Perfect World Mobile.[36]

FashionEdit

In 2020, Rosé was named the global ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello, becoming its first global ambassador in 59 years.[37] She was the global face for Saint Laurent's Fall 2020 campaign.[38] In 2021, Rosé became the muse for luxury cosmetics brand Yves Saint Laurent Beauté.[39]

On 21 April 2021, Rosé was declared as Tiffany & Co's newest global ambassador and debuted through the 2021 Tiffany HardWear digital campaign. In response, she stated: "I’ve always loved wearing Tiffany jewellery. To be part of an iconic brand that has been part of my life for a long time makes it that much more special to me. I am very honoured and excited to be a part of the HardWear campaign and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”[40]

Impact and influenceEdit

As of April 2021, Rosé is among the top 10 most-followed Korean individual on Instagram, with over 37 million followers.[12] Since 2018, she has appeared on the Korean Business Research Institute's female celebrity brand reputation list,[41] a chart that tracks Korean celebrities with the most online searches and engagements, and previously reached the top 10.[42]
