2020 has been quite a year for all the Blackpink members. The girls conquered the US by collaborating with international stars like Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga. They also released their album 'The Album' all in one year. Every new release makes blinks more excited. A new lightstick would be the cherry on top as the years closes to an end! Or would it? Read more to find out!
A lightstick is a handheld device that lights up in multiple different colors. It is made to be waved around during a concert. Each artist has a unique lightstick!
Recently, YG Entertainment released a Youtube trailer to announce a new, limited edition version of the Blackpink lightstick. Watch the trailer here:
This new version's design hasn't really been revealed yet. I think that the old design is very creative, so I know the new one will be too!
But does Blackpink need a new lightstick right now? I don't think so. Why, you ask? Let me explain:
1. No concerts during a pandemic
These lightsticks can only be fully used during concerts. The novel coronavirus prevents any gatherings and requires social distancing. It will be a waste of money to buy one right now.
2. The new version is a limited edition
I think selling a limited edition item makes it difficult for people to obtain it, and so it is not fair to the fans to have a limited amount of pieces.
3. Blackpink's fans have special memories with version 1 of the lightstick
The new lightstick will make the old one obsolete. Blinks have special memories with the old version and should not have to let them go.
All in all, I think Blackpink would appreciate all their fans, regardless of whether they have the new lightstick or not. Although I would love to buy it and try out its awesome new features, I think that the old version is good enough for now.
Do you think that Blackpink should release a new version of their lightstick? Let us know in the comments below!
