  • Blackpink and Selena Gomez have released their new track, Ice Cream.
  • The video for the song combines pastel colours, retro outfits, and a fun summer themed set.
  • The track comes just one week after fellow K-Pop stars BTS dropped their song, Dynamite.

"#SELPINK is officially in your area," Selena Gomez wrote on Instagram, letting fans know that her collaboration with K-Pop group Blackpink is out.

After weeks of teasing fans, Selena and Blackpink dropped Ice Cream - a fun tune perfect for the summer. The song comes just one week after fellow K-Pop stars, BTS, released their track, Dynamite.

Whenever unlikely artists pair up to do collabs, I always try to imagine what the end product will sound like. For this one, I wondered if Selena would dominate the track, sink into the background, or seamlessly blend in with the K-Pop foursome to create something magical. I'm happy to report it was the latter. 

The set, the retro outfits, the pastel colours - it all just works. Combine that with the cute yet cheeky lyrics, and you've got a real winner.
