We’re so glad we were right all along!
Remember that time when YG Entertainment was dangling a new east meets west collaboration for BLACKPINK in front of us trying to make us guess and we were all dreaming for it to be with Selena Gomez?
Well, it’s time to stop dreaming because it’s about to become a reality!
This morning, at 8 AM KST, YG Entertainment made our dreams come true as we woke up to an official announcement of the upcoming Selena Gomez X BLACKPINK single hosted on all platforms. The SelPink track drops August 28, 1 PM KST.

East in the West
YG Entertainment is quite adamant about BLACKPINK breaking through western pop music with all these collaborations with western superstars starting from Dua Lipa to Lady Gaga, and now to Selena Gomez. All we know is that we’re really excited about where or who the Kpop power girls are headed for next!
Who would you like BLACKPINK to collaborate with next?
