AceShowbiz - BLACKPINK has become the latest K-Pop act to release a collaboration with western artist. Teaming up with Dua Lipa, the ladies released their much-anticipated banger entitled "Kiss and Make Up" on Thursday, October 18 and it's surely a bop.
The three-minute song finds the "New Rules" hitmaker and the four-piece girl group singing about trying to kiss and make up before a relationship ends in a breakup. "Touch me like you touch nobody/ Put your hands all up on me/ Tired of hearing sorry," Dua and Rose rhyme before Lisa and Jennie join in, " 'Cause all I want is you up on me/ Tired of hearing sorry/ Kiss and make, kiss, kiss and make up."
Besides singing in English, BLACKPINK also delivers lines on their own native language.
The song has been streamed more than one million times less than five hours after its release, with many fans taking to the comment section to gush over how beautiful they sound together and dub it "the best collab in the world." One fan commented, "The beat, the lyrics and the vocals are perfect. Dua Lipa and Black Pink are perfect. The collab is amazing. The song is a masterpiece. I don't think I can be any happier right now."
"Kiss and Make Up" marks the first time the two acts have worked together and the group's first time to be featured on a song as a whole. The song is featured on the new super deluxe version of Dua's self-titled debut album. Aside from the collaboration, the effort will feature two other new tracks, "Want to" and "Running".
Following the release of the collaboration, BLACKPINK is gearing up for the release of their own solo songs. Yang Hyun Suk, the founder of YG Entertainment, recently shared Jennie would be the first member to release her solo song, followed by Rose.
