Blinks, ready na ba kayo? After an epic collaboration in 2018 for Dua Lipa’s “Kiss And Make Up,” the popular K-pop group Blackpink is back again to kick it in 2020 with a fresh new east-meets-west collab. This time, they are featured in a song with no less than Lady Gaga, the mother monster, herself.
In an interview with Japanese magazine, TV Groove, Lady Gaga spilled more deets about her collaboration with the four-member girl group. The song is called “Sour Candy” which is one of the tracks in her new album Chromatica. On working with Blackpink over the song, Lady Gaga said that she was the one who reached out to the girls for a possible partnership over a new song. “I spoke to them and asked them if they wanted to sing with me, and they were so happy and motivated,” She shares. “It was a really exciting collaboration.”
Lady Gaga was also particularly enthusiastic about having her lyrics translated in another language and even said that she was honored to be an honorary member of the girl group, at least for “Sour Candy.” Awww! In the same interview, she says, “I was excited to hear them interpret songs in Korean and told them that the part was very creative and fun. I was amazed to hear their singing. They are beautiful young women, really talented, and I'm proud to be the fifth member of Blackpink (on this song).”
Empowered women working together—we love to see it! Not much else has been revealed about the collab, however, like whether or not we’re getting a music video just like Lady Gaga’s other collab “Rain On Me” with Ariana Grande. Still, we’re so ready to hear new music from these two powerful artists.
“Sour Candy” is part of Lady Gaga’s new album Chromatica which comes out on May 28, 2020. Listen to the song here:
