The song was released as part of the Korean-New Zealand artist’s debut album –R- in March, alongside “Gone.” “On the Ground” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s two global tallies: the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts. She became the first artist to have led the Global Excl. U.S. survey solo and with her group, as BLACKPINK’s “Lovesick Girls” crowned the list in October 2020.
But while Rosé was doling out small gifts to the Blinks, John Mayer sent her a sweet present too after she nailed a cover of his 2006 Continuum track “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” on the South Korean variety show Sea of Hope last month. “This is gorgeous @ygofficialblink #rosÉ,” Mayer tweeted as his thumbs up of approval while also sharing a video of the performance. But the next time she gives “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room,” “On the Ground” or any other song a spin, she can do it with her new guitar, thanks to the Grammy-winning artist.
Mayer sent Rosé a PRS Silver Sky electric guitar, in the Roxy Pink color, with a handwritten note that read, “Rosé! I should be thanking YOU! (so thank you.).” The K-pop singer showed off her gift on her Instagram Story and wrote, “…….!!!!!!! Life is complete…… Ty @johnmayer.” In the next slide, the singer revealed Mayer had autographed the back of his guitar model to add a personal touch to the present.
