Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa bring out their sweet and flirty side as they dance and play in a pastel-colored set. Completing the mix is Selena Gomez, the perfect combination of sexy and sweet. The song sounds fun and innocent yet the lyrics are injected with innuendos. The music video looks like a dessert and may remind you of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” era.
The Blackpink and Selena Gomez collaboration is the second single from the Kpop group’s first Korean language studio album. “How You Like That,” the first single from “Blackpink: The Album,” was released last June.
Blackpink and Selena Gomez have expressed their mutual admiration, saying they are big fans of each other and were thrilled to have worked together on “Ice Cream.” It looks like they’re not the only ones who are excited for their collaboration. Just six hours after its release, the music video has already garnered 33 million views on YouTube.
With the release of “Ice Cream,” Blackpink and Selena Gomez have been trending online with the hashtags #SELPINK, #Blackpink, and #IceCream.
Blinks and even celebrities showed their appreciation for the quartet’s new song. Anne Curtis said she loved everything about the music video. A fan even inserted her photo on the “Ice Cream” poster, which made Anne very happy.
Richard Juan couldn’t hide his excitement for the collaboration of two of his favorites. He even posted his photos with Selena and Blackpink.
Aside from the release of “Ice Cream,” YG Entertainment announced today that there will be four versions of Blackpink’s album. The CD will include a hardcover photobook, postcard set, photocards and more. “Blackpink: The Album” is set to drop in October.
