Get ready for some #SelPink in your area! After a week of fevered speculation, pop star Selena Gomez has revealed herself as the mystery artist featured on Blackpink’s forthcoming single, which arrives on August 28. Last week, the K-pop girl group unveiled the cover art for the track and hinted at a new collaboration – sending fans of Gomez and Blackpink into an all-caps tweeting frenzy. “So SO excited to announce [Blackpink] and I have a new song coming out!” Gomez said, confirming the rumours on Twitter and Instagram. (A moment of silence for all the #AriPink hopefuls who predicted a collab between Blackpink and Thank U, Next hitmaker Ariana Grande .) Blackpink members Jisoo , Jennie , Lisa and Rose also shared the news on social media, as did the band’s official Twitter account. Combined, Gomez and Blackpink’s announcements have amassed more than 617,000 likes on the platform. #BLACKPINK #블랙핑크 #SelenaGomez #셀레나고메즈 #NewSingle #TeaserPoster #20200828_12amEST #20200828_1pmKST #ComingSoon #YG pic.twitter.com/a9Mh8Za2Nz — BLACKPINKOFFICIAL (@BLACKPINK) August 12, 2020 “SelPink isn’t just a collab, it's a cultural reset, it's the best collab of 2020 already, it’s a masterpiece, it’s art in its purest form, it’s a gift from God, a food for your soul and a breath of holiness, it is everything that we need,” tweeted several excited Blinks (members of the Blackpink fandom). Earlier this year, the women of Blackpink joined forces with Lady Gaga for Sour Candy , a hit single off the latter’s 2020 album “Chromatica”, after teaming with Dua Lipa for 2018’s Kiss and Make Up . A title for the group’s latest joint track has yet to be revealed. In January, Gomez released her third studio effort, “Rare”, which newspaper Los Angeles Times hailed as her “first great pop album”. Earlier this summer, she collaborated with singer-songwriter Trevor Daniel and rapper Lil Mosey for a remix of Daniel’s Past Life . Blackpink’s highly anticipated debut album is set to arrive on October 2.
