BLACKPINK X SELENA IS SERVING US ‘ICE CREAM’ IN THEIR LATEST COLLAB RELEASE
The much awaited collaboration between BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez is finally out. The girl group has released their second single titled – ‘ICE CREAM’ featuring Selena Gomez on 28 Aug. 2020 along with a music video for the same under their upcoming album, which is due to be released on October 2nd.
The song is produced by – Tommy Brown, Mr. Franks, TEDDY, 24. And written by – Bekuh BOOM, Victoria Monet, TEDDY, Tommy Brown, Steven Franks, 24, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande.
The song is a breath of fresh air, unlike BLACKPINK’s usual music style or video concept, ‘ICE CREAM’ can be said to be a much laid back song that one could enjoy while out in the park in a picnic; it gives off summer vibes. The music production gives you a mix of American pop-meets k-pop feel. A major portion of the song has been sung in English by the members of the group and Selena (obviously) and in the end, we can hear member Lisa rapping a few lyrics verses in Korean.
The song is of dance, bubblegum-pop genre, the beats used in the song are pretty much the same throughout without any variation. The ladies did their part the best with their amazing vocals and rap style. The verses and the chorus suit well to the theme of the song. The lyrics of the song seem mostly like a metaphor used to tease the boy they like. The overall production had a youthful approach towards the title of the song.
Look so good, yeah, look so sweet (Hey)BLACKINK – ICE CREAM (with SELENA GOMEZ)
Lookin’ good, enough to eat
Coldest with the kiss, so he call me ice cream
Catch me in the fridge, right where the ice be
Look so good, yeah, look so sweet (Hey)
Baby, you deserve a treat
Diamonds on my wrist, so he call me ice cream
You could double-dip ’cause I know you like me
The music video shows the use of primary and pastel tones to it; they are seen wearing clothing which shows the retro era best mixed with the current trends. Dancing around an ice cream truck, holding an ice cream cone, and taking a bit of it, the girls are shown to be flirting around with the use of lyrics. There isn’t much dance choreography to this song, however, it would make you just groove to it throughout and will definitely make you crave for an ‘ICE CREAM’.
