After teasing the release on social media, K-Pop group BLACKPINK have joined forces with Selena Gomez on the brand new song “Ice Cream.”
The second single from BLACKPINK’s eventual debut album, “Ice Cream” is a lighthearted song on the surface. Pairing sly wordplay with the summery ice cream motif, BLACKPINK members Rosé and Jennie sing “Looks so good / Looks so sweet / Baby, you deserve a treat” with Gomez on an incredibly catchy chorus. Jisoo joins the trio on the second verse, memorably referencing ice cream franchise Cold Stone.
Band member Lisa also makes an appearance during the track’s last verse, changing up the pacing of the song. As for the trap-like instrumentals and vocal techniques sounding more familiar to Western radio pop listeners, that might be explained by Ariana Grande, who also joined in as a co-writer for “Ice Cream.”
The collaborators also shared an accompanying music video for their latest single, where the girls perform inside neon-colored ice cream trucks and on tennis courts.
BLACKPINK’s debut full-length LP drops on Oct. 2 and is available for preorder here.
