Fans of BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez cross their fingers for a stage with both artists, but the possibility is slim.
Now a globally-famous girl group, BLACKPINK has met various top US-UK artists, and maintains a close relationship with them. In particular, despite having released only 2 full albums across their career, BLACKPINK has collaborated with Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, and more. They also released “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez in 2020, even releasing a music video.
First “visual showdown” of Rosé, Jisoo, and Selena Gomez
Little people know that prior to their collaboration “Ice Cream”, BLACKPINK members Rosé and Jisoo had a “visual showdown” with Selena Gomez at a 2018 fashion event. At the time, their image together became a hot topic, with netizens praising the appearance of all 3 superstars.
Appeared in the same MV but not together
Back in 2020, BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez collaborated in the song “Ice Cream”, and a music video was also released. At the time, the MV received explosive reaction, as BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez are both top names in the industry with tens of millions Instagram followers and high trend-setting value.
Unfortunately, while BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez both appeared in the “Ice Cream” MV, their collaboration happened amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the MV was filmed separately on the two sides, and BLACKPINK and Selena never shared a frame. There was also no promotional stage with Selena Gomez, causing a lot of regrets.
Nevertheless, Selena Gomez shows her support and love to BLACKPINK in different ways, and never ceases to praise the girl group’s style and professionalism. The pop singer also appeared in the lyrics video of “Ice Cream”, which is filmed in the format of a video conference.
Selena Gomez visited BLACKPINK in the backstage, fans hope for a stage together
In November 2022, 2 years after “Ice Cream”, Selena Gomez and BLACKPINK finally appeared in the same frame. In particular, Selena visited BLACKPINK in the backstage at the girl group’s Newark stop during their “BORN PINK” world tour.
Later on, Selena’s visit can be seen via BLACKPINK’s behind the scenes video for their Newark concert. The close friendship between the girls can be seen as Selena gave BLACKPINK a heart-felt hug.
Seeing the close interaction, fans wish for a shared stage between BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez. As slim as possibility is, there’s still hope, and should a stage really happen, fans all around the world will be super excited.
