On October 6, 2023, Jennie of BLACKPINK released a solo track named “You & Me.” Since its release, the song has received adoration and acclaim from the singer’s followers and has broken new records for the artist. The K-pop legend released two versions of the solo song “You & Me.” The first is the authentic version, while the second is the Coachella variation.

A user named @jeninikim16 tweeted on X, “My mom keep on telling me to let Jennie rest coz i’ve been streaming solo for so looong but she would always sing and dance to it and now she’s singing to you & me too”.

With its upbeat pop-dance rhythm and powerful bassline, it is a courageous song of steadfast love. On October 15, 2022, the performer had a solo performance of the song as part of BLACKPINK’s BORN PINK WORLD TOUR.

“It’s a song called “You & Me.” I did the recording about 3-4 years ago. I think it was on the list of nominees for my solo… or maybe after that. It was in the closet for a while, but while I was preparing for this concert, I thought about what kind of performances and songs I wanted to do and looked through songs with Teddy. We decided to bring out that song we liked, that’s when we decided to prepare for it. I had all these ideas in my head about how I wanted to perform it, so [choreographers] Eunchong and Jung are helping me make it a reality,” Jennie stated in an interview published on YouTube further elucidating what went behind the process of the making of the track.

Record-breaking track

The Coachella rendition of You & Me debuted at No. 18 on Spotify’s Global Top Songs chart. This marks the artist’s debut on the aforementioned chart.

In addition, MelOn has been dominated by the song, which debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100. It has also been trending at the top of real-time searches at the same time.

The song has dominated 53 different places throughout the world. It topped the world iTunes list as of October 7, 2023.
