Dua Lipa promotes her collab with Blackpink



"I've got this song coming out with this amazing all-girl Korean pop group called Blackpink. And they are amazing. Yeah, they are huge. And it comes out on October 19th and the song is called 'Kiss & Makeup'. And it's a song I wrote a year ago, but I wanted to do a collaboration with someone, I just didn't find the right home for it. And I recently met the girls in Seoul and I was just like Oh my god, would it be crazy if I just send them a song to see if they liked it and if they wanted to sing on it. And that's what I did and they were really quick with their response, they were like Yeah, let's do it! and they just quickly went and recorded it and changed some of the lyrics to Korean and that was really it."

Very interesting read with quite frank answers and numbers! CUBE's Youtube revenue from 2017 was over 4 Mio USD. Streaming income is divided 60% agency (~ 44% for CUBE, 10% royalties, 6% performers) and 40% music site services. BTOB have increased income distribution after renewal. CEO Shin is in charge of management while President Hong is still in charge of production aspect and has the final say on title tracks. CUBE plans to debut a boygroup with Kuan Lin and Seonho next year.

OP comment: I saw comments about this a while ago and it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth to use his pictures in a music video for a song about feeling lonely? And if it had been some kind of honoring wouldn't they have announced it?
