BLACKPINK is back. The four-member girl group released their new single, “How You Like That,” on Friday, June 26, and we’re full-on stanning. But what do BLACKPINK’s “How You Like That” lyrics mean in English? Well, the song is all about the satisfaction of karma.

BLACKPINK debuted with YG Entertainment in 2016 with their single, “Boombayah.” Since then the four members—Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa and Rosé—have become one of the most well-known bands in K-pop—not to mention the world. They’ve collaborated with artists like Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga (side note, “Sour Candy” is still a bop), and in 2019, the band became the first K-pop act to perform at Coachella.

“How You Like That” marks BLACKPINK’s long-awaited return to music after their April 2019 EP, Kill This Love. And the song is only the beginning for BLACKPINK’s new era. The band plans to release their first full-length album in September 2020, along with another single in July or August. Following the album, which will consist of 10 tracks, three of BLACKPINK’s members—Rosé, Lisa and Jisoo—will also release solo tracks. The band’s fourth member, Jennie, released her first solo song, “Solo,” in 2018.

As for the lyrics of “How you Like That,” well, the song fits into BLACKPINK’s well-known style of empowerment and badassery. The lyrics start with the members singing and rapping about how they’ve hit “rock bottom” before they let go of the toxic person who made their life so miserable. That’s when the members ask the other person “how you like that” now that they’re no longer under their control. The track goes on to reference “karma” and taking what’s theirs.

Verse 2: Lisa

Your girl needs it all and that’s a hundred

10 out of 10 I want what’s mine

Karma come and get some

I feel bad but there’s nothing I can do

What’s up, I’m right back

Trigger the cock back

Plain Jane get hijacked

Don’t like me?

Then tell me how you like that, like that

In such a darker place

Shine like the stars

With that smile on my face

I’ll kiss you goodbye

Laugh at me while you still can

Because it’s now your turn, one, two, three

Bridge: Rosé, Jisoo, Jennie & All

The day I went down with my wings lost

Those dark days when I was trapped

You should have ended me when you still have a chance

Look up in the sky

It’s a bird it’s a plane

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Bring out your boss bitch

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

BLACKPINK!
