2021 MAMA: The Case For 'Rose' As Female Artist of The Year

Why this often overlooked member quietly had the best year ever

1. On The Ground Was A Major Success

The most obvious reason. According to wiki "It was written by Rosé alongside Amy Allen, Raúl Cubina, Jon Bellion, Jorgen Odegard and Teddy Park, and was produced by the latter three alongside Ojivolta and 24. The song is an electropop, pop rock and pop track with synth-pop elements. Its lyrics reflect Rosé's rise to fame, from singing and playing piano in her childhood home to flying to South Korea and forming one of K-pop's biggest acts." All that to say, the song is amazing. Billboard ranks it 39 best song of 2021, a list that includes acts like Drake, Ariana Grande, etc.
