Listen: BLACKPINK’s Rosé Shares Gorgeous Cover Of Halsey’s “Eyes Closed” For Her Birthday
BLACKPINK’s Rosé kicked off her birthday with a very special surprise for her fans!
Just after midnight KST on her birthday, February 11, Rosé posted a soulful cover of Halsey’s “Eyes Closed” on both Twitter and Instagram. The BLACKPINK member previously covered the song during a live performance in Japan, and she also thrilled fans last year by sharing an adorable exchange with Halsey—in Korean, no less!—on Instagram.
Rosé wrote in Korean, “It’s my birthday, but I also wanted to give my fans a gift as well, so I prepared this [cover]. I’m always so grateful to all of you. I’ll work even harder in the future and become a [more] awesome Rosé! I love you!”
She also added in English, “Thank you for all the lovely birthday messages! I’m always so spoiled by all of you and I’m so grateful to every single one of you. So here’s me giving a tiny little something back in return. This is the studio version of my cover for Halsey’s ‘Eyes Closed’. I sang this at our Japan concert last year but this song has been one of my favourites for a very long time. So I’m super excited that I am able to give this to you on my birthday. Surprise!! haha This is such a deep song and I remember at the time when I recorded it, I was needing some of the healing that this song brings to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did singing it. So thank you again for all the lovely birthday messages and here’s my gift to you.”
Happy Birthday, Rosé!
