Dua Lipa Announces BLACKPINK Collaboration Coming in October
The girl group teamed up with the singer on a new song titled "Kiss and Make Up."
Early Tuesday (Sept. 4) morning Dua Lipa announced that she'll be releasing a super deluxe edition of her self-titled album next month, and one of the three new songs will feature the K-pop quartet BLACKPINK.
The new song, titled “Kiss and Make Up," will be the first international collaboration for the girl group, who made history earlier this year when their Square Up album and single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” became the highest-charting ones from a Korean female act ever on Stateside Billboard charts.
