BLACKPINK Unveil Vibrant Teaser for ‘Ice Cream’ Featuring Selena Gomez
The clip hints at an upbeat, summery vibe with plenty of color
South Korean girl group BLACKPINK have dropped a video teaser for their upcoming single “Ice Cream” featuring American singer-songwriter Selena Gomez. The track is officially set for release on August 28th.
The 17-second clip features the four members of BLACKPINK–Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé–popping their heads out of cutouts of giant ice cream cones. Gomez, donning a big smile and a vibrant striped bikini, drives up to meet them in an ice cream truck. It’s an upbeat, summery vibe with plenty of color–generous doses of pink included of course–and a synth-pop and trap beat.
Earlier this week, BLACKPINK unveiled promotional posters for “Ice Cream” featuring the members and Gomez in their looks for the music video. Fans of the group trended ‘Selena unnie’ (a Korean term addressing Gomez as BLACKPINK’s big sister) and #SELPINK on Twitter to celebrate the collaboration.
BLACKPINK made a massive comeback in June this year with the pre-release single “How You Like That” and will release a third single in September, followed their much-awaited first LP The Album on October 2nd. Comprising 10 tracks, the full-length studio album will be their first since their 2016 debut. Earlier this year, BLACKPINK also collaborated with Lady Gaga on “Sour Candy,” a track featured on the latter’s album Chromatica which released in May.
“Ice Cream” is Gomez’s first comeback after dropping her third studio album Rare in January, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
