SELPINK in our area! BLACKPINK’s new track "Ice Cream" featuring Selena Gomez has finally arrived, and it’s every bit the sugary sweet sensation we dreamed it would be, with sprinkles and a cherry on top.
About 11 seconds, after a banging intro, SelGo asks us to "come a little closer," and we’re immediately sent off on a magical ice cream truck ride, which if your watching the vibrant video, is being helmed by none other than Ms. Gomez herself.
If we’re keeping it real, given the sweet nature of it’s title and colorful retro teasers, the underlying naughty nature of the track was rather unexpected, but pleasantly welcome. Throughout the song the ladies flexed their sexy word play skills with lyrics like "you can take a lick, but it’s too cold to bite me,” and l"ooks so good, yeah looks so sweet, lookin’ good enough to eat."
Produced my Tommy Brown, Mr. Franks, TEDDY and 24, "Ice Cream," will be just one of the tracks featured on BLACKPINK’s highly anticipated album, The Album, scheduled to release on October 2.
For our mega fan, internet scrolling comrades out there, you most likely already know that Ariana Grande and her bestie Victoria Monet are just a few of the credited songwriters on the track, along with its featured artist Selena. For us the giveway was when Ariana was tagged in producer Tommy's post proudly announcing the excitement of the song. Seriously though, as if the concoction of SelGo and BLACKPINK wasn’t enough, knowing that Ari was part of the production of this boppy pop confection is really sending us.
Okay, we’re done. Now go eat some ice cream while you listen to "Ice Cream" on repeat, well do what you want, but that’s what we plan to do.
