SelPink is (almost) in your area. After weeks of speculation, the artists finally announced their collaboration, which drops later this August.

BLACKPINK announced a collaboration with Selena Gomez
BLINKS do not have to wait any longer. The secret collaboration between BLACKPINK and another artist has finally been revealed. The K-pop group will perform alongside “A Year Without Rain”;, “Lose You to Love Me”, and “Taki Taki” singer Selena Gomez. The title of the song, however, is still a mystery.
In a statement published by Koreaboo, YG Entertainment said, “These two artists, who have been fans of each other for a long time, have finally realized their dreams with this collaboration. BLACKPINK expresses their gratitude to Selena who participated in this album and is excited to share the new song with the fans. ”
Although they can not cross paths that often, BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez are definitely fans of each other. Selena Gomez even shared her emotion for the bachelor in her Instagram title. Her post gained over three million likes within a few days.
Are BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez friends?
Before the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), these artists actually met each other in person during the Spring / Summer 2019 Fashion Hall in New York. Jisoo recalled her first impression of the artist for an interview.
Koreaboo reports she said, “Selena Gomez? Okay, we said hello and took pictures together. She was touched because she was so polite. I met a singer I saw since I was young, and I was forced to talk “with her and taking pictures with her. It was all very beautiful.”
Turns out, Jisoo remembered this artist from her Disney Channel days, where she starred as Alex Russo in the original series, Wizards of Waverly Place. Of course, Selena Gomez is focused on her music right now, releasing it Rare and singing in an upcoming song with BLACKPINK.
This would not be the first time BLACKPINK has collaborated with an American artist
In the past this K-pop group appeared on Lady Gaga’s album, performing alongside her for the song “Sour Candy”. Some fans doubted that the announcement of the collaboration would include Ariana Grande, as the two have been longtime supporters of each other.
Still, the post titled Selena Gomez won over two million likes from fans of both artists. This singular puzzle will premiere on August 28, just weeks after the premiere of “How Do You Like It”.
BLACKPINK’s first studio album will arrive on October 2 via YG Entertainment / Interscope Records. Until then music by BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez is available on Spotify, Apple Music and major broadcast platforms.
