After showing her ‘outfit of the day’, Jennie then proceeds to sing her own version of Tangled’s “When Will My Life Begin?” originally sung by Mandy Moore. Clips of her doing the laundry, cleaning her room, and hanging out with her dog, among others, were shown while her cover was playing in the background.
She ends the video by saying, “I hope you guys enjoyed the video I prepared for you today. I’ll try harder to make better for you guys from now on!”
The Jennierubyjane official channel now has 3.82 million subscribers, just three days after the launch.
Blackpink Solo Projects
But this isn’t the first solo project Jennie has ventured in.

As of writing, the music video for the song now has over 602 million views.
