This breakup anthem was written by YG Entertainment's in-house producer Teddy Park and American singer-songwriter Bekuh BOOM. The pair previously collaborated on BlackPink's single "<a href="https://www.songfacts.com/facts/blackpink/ddu-du-ddu-du">Ddu-Du Ddu-Du</a>."
The song starts off with Jennie singing about the highs of falling in love and the lows of breaking up. Translated into English, she is saying: <i>After a sweet "hi," there's always a bitter "bye" After every crazy high, there's a price you have to pay There's no answer to this test I'll always fall for it yes</i> Jennie acknowledges the relationship is about to end and its time to "kill this love."
The fourth verse, bridge and outro are delivered entirely in English, which is a rarity in K-pop. More typically, K-Pop is sung in Korean with maybe a sprinkling of a few English phrases. This indicates the song is aimed at the American market.
