"On the Ground" is the debut single by Korean-New Zealand singer and Blackpink member Rosé. It was released on 12 March 2021 by YG Entertainment as the lead single from her debut single album, R. 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 and an EDM-inspired beat, complemented by a simple guitar. 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 the K-pop's biggest acts. An accompanying music video, directed by Han Sa-min, premiered the same day as the song's release. Upon release, the music video broke several YouTube records for a Korean solo artist, including for the most-watched premiere and the most views within 24 hours for a music video, accumulating 41.6 million views in that time. The song peaked at number 4 in South Korea, number 31 in Australia, number 43 in the UK, and number 70 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming the highest-charting song by a Korean female soloist in the US and UK. The song also debuted and peaked at number 1 on both the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts, the first song by a Korean solo artist to do so in the charts' histories. To promote "On the Ground", the singer appeared and performed on several South Korean music programs including M Countdown, Inkigayo, and Show! Music Core. On 24 March 2021, Rosé received her first ever music show win for the song on Show Champion. Since then she has achieved five more music show wins for the track on M Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core, and Inkigayo.
