Update — Friday, August 21st: BLACKPINK and Gomez have formally announced the title of their collaborative single: “Ice Cream”.
as-yet-untitled song marks the first collaboration between the South Korean group and pop singer Gomez. It marks the second preview of Blackpink: The Album following “How You Like That”, a bonafide banger that brought in more than 80 million views in just the first 24 hours.
Blackpink’s The Album is slated for arrival on October 2nd via YG Entertainment/Interscope. The highly anticipated record comes a little over a year after BLACKPINK’s Kill This Love EP, a stellar effort that included one of our favorite songs of 2019. In the time since then, the four-piece of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa teamed up with Lady Gaga on Chromatica treat “Sour Candy”.
As for Gomez, the pop star put out a deluxe edition of Rare this past April.
