Earlier in May, Lady Gaga announced that she would be releasing her sixth album “Chromatica” on May 29. The album includes the track “Sour Candy,” which features BLACKPINK.
On their upcoming collaboration, BLACKPINK had previously shared, “We listened to each other’s music and became fans of each other, so we naturally carried out this project.”
Lady Gaga also revealed her thoughts on the collaboration through an interview with Japanese outlet tvgroove on May 27. She shared, “I called BLACKPINK first to suggest working together. The BLACKPINK members were happy and showed enthusiasm for the project, so we were able to collaborate thanks to that. I wanted to support powerful women such as BLACKPINK, and they felt the same.”
The artist also revealed, “I got excited while hearing them interpret the song in Korean. I told them that their part is very creative and fun.” She praised, “BLACKPINK are beautiful young women, and they’re very talented. Through this collaboration, I felt proud as if I’d become BLACKPINK’s fifth member.”
Previously, BLACKPINK entered the U.S. market in 2018, and they landed on Billboard’s Hot 100 with their collaboration with Dua Lipa for “Kiss and Make Up.”
