BLACKPINK confidently recounts their accomplishments as a musical act in the new video, which is set in a sleek white garage and a city after hours. There are also references to previous music videos by the girl group, including ‘Boombayah,’ ‘Whistle’ and ‘Kill This Love.’ Along with strong lyricism, ‘Shut Down’ also has excerpts from Niccol Paganini’s violin solo, ‘La campanella,’ which was composed in Italy.
