BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez are continuing to hype fans up with their upcoming collaboration “ICE CREAM”. YG Entertainment dropped the first teaser video for the track on August 24, 9AM KST.
Instead of the usual visualizers that BLACKPINK releases, the teaser for “ICE CREAM” featured a video call between the two artists.
Selena began by expressing her gratitude to BLACKPINK for the call, “Thank you for staying up so early!”
Rosé then shyly shared her love for the American singer.
We’re really glad that you’re on it, cause, you know, we’ve been a big fan of yours for a long time!
Selena replied that she, too, was their fan and that the collaboration is meaningful for her as well.
I’m so stoked! I’ve been a fan of you guys and so, like, this is a big, big dream for me and I can’t wait.
— Selena Gomez
After a chorus of BLACKPINK’s “Oh my god, she’s so sweet”, a short beat of “ICE CREAM” was played at the end of the video.
This is not BLACKPINK’s first collaboration with an A-list Western artist. They previously released “Kiss and Make Up” with Dua Lipa in 2018 and “Sour Candy” with Lady Gaga in early 2020.
“ICE CREAM” was produced and written by famous songwriters Tommy Brown, Bekuh Boom, Victoria Monet, Mr. Franks, and even Ariana Grande. It will be released on August 28, 12AM EST and 1PM KST.
