BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez‘ collaboration, “Ice Cream” made waves over the summer as a fusion of two beloved pop artists. In a recent interview with GQ India, Selena Gomez was asked about what it was like working with BLACKPINK and gave us all an insight on the process!

The entire song was produced during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to rather challenging obstacles when it comes to a collaborative work. However, the girls made it work!

It was a learning process because the language was new but somehow our distinct styles along with their energy, we just fit together perfectly. The BLACKPINK girls were so welcoming. We had an absolute blast while working on the song over FaceTime!
