The Blackpink girls have confirmed who they will be collaborating with next. And it’s none other than Selena Gomez!
After teasing fans about their new single featuring a mystery artist, Blackpink finally announced the name of the star. As for us, we couldn’t be more excited!
Actress and pop icon Selena Gomez will be joining the quartet for their latest single.
“So SO excited to announce @BlackPinkOfficial and I have a new song coming out August 28th,” Gomez wrote on Instagram.
The official Blackpink Instagram handle made the big announcement, posting an attractive, eye-catching graphic.
Surprisingly, the name of the song has not been disclosed yet. It probably doesn’t matter, because this collab has got ‘instant hit’ written all over it. The track releases on Friday, August 28.
The Selena Gomez and Blackpink collab marks the second official single from the girl group’s upcoming studio album, Blackpink: The Album. The LP comes out on October 2.
They haven’t revealed much about the tracklist yet, making Gomez the only featuring artist so far.
It was only a few weeks ago that the K-pop group released How You Like That, the lead single from their forthcoming album. The peppy and groovy track made its way to No. 33 on the Hot 100. Moreover, it crossed 400 million views on Youtube.
How You Like That came after the group’s yearlong hiatus, save for a small collaboration with Lady Gaga on Sour Candy.
Meanwhile, Selena Gomez released her third studio album Rare earlier this year.
Selena Gomez joining hands with Blackpink could be huge for the South Korean girl group. Their popularity is soaring, agreed, but with Selena’s name attached to their single, they may gain a new fan-following. Many people previously unfamiliar with the group might be tempted to listen to its new tunes. Not to mention the supremely loyal #Selenators who will make sure the track tops charts.
How amazing does the idea of a Selena Gomez and Blackpink collab sound? We’re thrilled!
