AceShowbiz - BLACKPINK have finally released an exciting collaboration with PUBG MOBILE. "Ready for Love" is already available and can be listened to on various music streaming services starting from Friday, July 29.
Fans can also watch its official music video on YouTube. In the animated visuals, Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa explore four different battlegrounds in the hit survival game before they reunite on stage.
"There's no need to wait now/ No need to be afraid," Jennie and Rose sing in the pre-chorus. "Show me the color of your heart/ I really need you in my world/ Open your eyes, here I am in front of you."
The new single arrived after BLACKPINK announced earlier this month that they are in the "final stages of recording a new album." They are also planning the "largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group."
Their record label YG Entertainment said in a statement, "A lot of BLACKPINK-esque music has been prepared over a long period of time." It added, "On top of new music and large-scale projects, BLACKPINK will also go on the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group by the end of the year to expand their rapport with fans worldwide."
According to the label, their sophomore album will begin a "continuous large-scale project which will extend through the second half of the year." It went on to note that the project will begin "a lot of BLACKPINK-esque music [that] has been prepared over a long period of time."
The forthcoming record will follow BLACKPINK's 2020's debut "The ALBUM". Speaking about their upcoming music, Jisso told Rolling Stone last month, "We don't just receive a completed song... We are involved from the beginning, building the blocks, adding this or that feeling, exchanging feedback - and this process of creating makes me feel proud of our music."
"If we just received pre-made songs, it would feel mechanical," she further explained. "I feel more love for the process, because we say, 'How about adding this in the lyrics? How about adding this move in the choreography?' "
