K POP BLACKPINK-LADYGAGA, a surprise pre-release of the Collaboration song
A song sung by girl group K POP BLACKPINK with world pop star LadyGaga has been released in advance.
YG Entertainment, the agency, said on the same day that Lady Gaga, featured by K POP BLACKPINK, released "Sour Candy" from her sixth full-length album "Chromatica" at 8 p.m. on the 28th. The album will be released on the 29th, but "Shower Candy" was released a day earlier without notice.
The lyrics include Korean as well, which is unusual for pop to be released in the U.S. In addition to the English lyrics, K POP BLACKPINK performed parts with Korean lyrics such as "You'll be embarrassed by the unexpected expression / You're the one who wrapped it with the words 'expensive'."
"I'm so honored and happy to work with my favorite artist Lady Gaga," K POP
BLACKPINK said. "I hope BLINKs all over the world will enjoy the song as it is a fun song to work on." I hope it will be loved by many people," he said through YG.
Lady Gaga said in an interview with the Japanese media TVGruv in March, "I proposed to BLACKPINK to work on the song myself. It was a very exciting and wonderful time to collaborate with them."
"BLACKPINK is a very creative and talented group," he added. "I'm proud to be the fifth member of BLACKPINK through this song."
