BABYMONSTER has attracted expectations even before its debut thanks to its participation in a reality show produced by YG Entertainment. Here, the group demonstrated excellent skills.

BABYMONSTER's song Batter Up contains a confident message as a game changer and the landscape of the global music market. The song features YG Entertainment's unique hip-hop sound, flashy hooks, and interesting bridge.

After the Batter Up MV was posted on platforms, contrary to expectations, the public expressed disappointment and gave many comments on YG's lack of explosive rookie debut. The song was considered lacking in c.limax and unimpressive, BABYMONSTER was like "Treasure's female version".

The image and concept of MV Batter Up even caused controversy because it looked like a patchwork version of BLACKPINK - 2NE1. Knet said that YG did not take care of the new g.irl group at all, preparing products hastily and superficially. On forums there is also information spreading that YG does not have a visual director for this project.

One of the first distinctive features is the YG "branded" way of filming and editing. The Hip-hop quality in Batter Up is highlighted through a gorgeous set setting, using boxy shapes and contrasting colors. All have been applied to 2NE1 - BLACKPINK.

Therefore, the song temporarily did not perform well on Korean music charts. Batter Up didn't even enter the Melon chart. Meanwhile, BLACKPINK, who just debuted, is already dominating the digital music scene.

BABYMONSTER was promoted as a "future music group", the next generation of BLACKPINK or a "game changer" but debuted with a product copied from the company's own existing resources. Not being able to shape their own brand from their debut product will have a negative impact on the group's long-term career in the future.
