After the promotions for their debut single “Wee Woo” ended, it was announced, on May 15, that Pristin was going to promote “Black Widow” as a special gift to fans.[3] Days later, on May 19, a remixed version of the song was released on Korean digital retailers.[1] Although it didn’t receive a proper music video, a dance practice video featuring the full choreography for the song was released through Pristin’s official YouTube channel on May 14.[4]

“Black Widow” is an uptempo song with trap beats, which showcases Pristin’s dark and sexy side.[5] The song was composed by the group’s member Rena, along with Simon Petrén, Ylva Dimberg and Jo Michelle.[2] The single version was remixed by Anchor.[6]

The album version of “Black Widow” was performed for the first time in a showcase held to promote Hi! Pristin on March 22.[7] During the promotions for their debut single “Wee Woo”, Pristin also briefly performed the song on a few selected music shows, including Mnet‘s M Countdown.[8] After said promotions were wrapped up, the group promoted the remixed version of “Black Widow” for a whole week as the album’s second single, which was also labelled as the ‘vampire version’ by music shows.[9] They started on SBS MTV‘s The Show on May 16,[10] and continued through MBC Music‘s Show Champion on May 17,[11] and SBS‘s Inkigayo on May 21.[12] The song was also performed during the KCON festival in Japan on May 19.[13] Despite the promotions, “Black Widow” failed to enter on music charts.
