BLACKPINK participated in the new album of pop star Lady GaGa. The pop music market is already stirred up with the collaboration of world-class artists in various fields such as music, fashion, and art.
Lady Gaga released her upcoming ablum ‘Chromatica’ tracklist on her Instagram on the 23rd (KST). According to the publicly released tracklist, the album has a track titled ‘Sour Candy’, which features none other than the queens of BLACKPINK.
Although the album release schedule and specific information about the music have not been known yet, the news alone is exploding among global fans.
YG Entertainment explained, “BLACKPINK and Lady Gaga listened to each other’s music and became fans, so they proceeded with this work.”
In addition to BLACKPINK, Ariana Grande and Legend Elton John will also be featured on the songs ‘Rain On Me’ and ‘Shine From Above’, respectively. Working with world-class stars, BLACKPINK once again added meaning to the home country of Pop music.
After her debut, Lady Gaga has won 11 awards at the Grammy Awards for her creative and experimental music, and has been nominated for a total of 27. That is why she is called a ‘Queen of Pop’, a singer who is recognized for both popularity and musicality, and who has built her own unique domain.
BLACKPINK has leaped into a representative group of K-pop with intense music and trendy fashion since debut. In April of last year, through ‘Kill This Love’, they ranked 41st on the US Billboard main single chart, ‘Hot 100’, and 24th on the main album chart, ‘Billboard 200’. It was the K-pop girl group record on the Billboard main chart.
With the momentum, BLACKPINK wrapped up 32 concert tours in 23 cities on four continents, including North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia, starting with Los Angeles.
It was a tremendous move that was difficult to see as a rookie group less than a year after entering the US market.
Meanwhile, BLACKPINK is currently preparing their new album as well as collaboration with Lady Gaga, but also preparing their new album.
