Selena Gomez and BLACKPINK just released their collaboration song "Ice Cream." The lyrics for the dance-pop song tells about the charms of the singers, or any woman for that matter. Though they may appear to have a cold exterior, they are loveable on the inside - just like ice cream.
"I know that my heart can be so cold, but I'm sweet for you...baby, you deserve a treat."
One of the standout co-writers for the summer song is Ariana Grande, who is set to perform on stage with Lady Gaga this coming 2020 MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, August 31.
Other contributors to the songwriting process are Teddy Park, Bekuh BOOM, and Gomez herself. Music producers Tommy Brown and Steve Franks also brought the dance-pop song to life.
The music video for the song features the artists wearing summer-themed fashion and props. Gomez is seen wearing a sailor outfit while driving an ice cream truck. On some shots, the "Love You Like A Love Song" pop princess is also seen in a 70s costume while lying down on a 60s Cadillac.
BLACKPINK members Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rosé, is dancing in a neighborhood filled with Hansel-and-Gretel candy houses. They are also wearing with flirty tennis outfit, playing on an inflatable playground inflatable, or just chilling in an ice cream shop.
"Ice Cream" MV now has over 26 million views, 3.7 million likes, and 800 thousand comments as of this writing. It is uploaded on BLACKPINK's YouTube channel.
Rumors about the collaboration was circulating before Selena Gomez and BLACKPINK confirmed it on August 12. The talented girls later revealed the title of the track via their social media accounts on August 21.
An announcement in May 2020 revealed that Gomez is the host and executive producer of the upcoming HBO Max cooking show "Selena + Chef." The "We Don't Talk Anymore" pop artist will appear on the program along with a different chef every episode and will feature a food-related charity.
