Less than a week after dropping off her second solo single, BLACKPINK star Jennie has unveiled a new “jazz version” of the lovestruck track. Released in a live performance video to the official BLACKPINK YouTube channel, the new version of “You & Me” shifts the song closer to an acoustic vibe than its dance-pop foundation.

Wearing a chic baby pink and black dress, Jennie sits atop a black stool in the center a dusky moonlit room as she delivers a heartfelt stripped-back rendition of “You & Me.” The song’s blaring synths are traded for twinkling piano keys and a less fussy arrangement that grants the singer ample space to show off her vocal chops. “I love you and me dancing in the moonlight/ Nobody can see, it’s just you and me tonight,” she croons as she performs for the camera.

Jennie released “You & Me” on Friday (Oct. 6). It’s her first solo release since 2018’s aptly titled “Solo,” which peaked at No. 1 on World Digital Song Sales. The K-pop star first performed the track almost exactly one year ago at the Oct. 15, 2022, opening concert of BLACKPINK’s Born Pink World Tour; the song went on to be a staple in the show’s setlist. A performance featuring an updated arrangement followed at Coachella this April.

In addition to touring with her bandmates and releasing new solo music, Jennie has also made major moves in the acting world this year. She starred alongside The Weeknd and Troye Sivan in Max’s music industry drama The Idol — which was co-created by The Weeknd, Sam Levinson and Reza Fahim, and directed by Levinson. Although Max decided not to renew the controversial show for a second season, fans will always have JENNIE’s contributions to its accompanying soundtrack. She joined forces with The Weeknd and show lead Lily Rose-Depp for an R&B-inflected track called “One of the Girls”; the song peaked at No. 183 on the Billboard Global Excl. US chart, becoming Jennie’s first entry on the ranking as a soloist.
