Back in 2018, BLACKPINK and Dua Lipa teamed up for the collaboration “Kiss & Make Up”. While they weren’t able to film a music video for the song, they were able to perform it live for fans.
During BLACKPINK’s In Your Area stop in Newark, New Jersey, Dua Lipa made a surprise appearance to do so.
Although that and the release of the song was over a year ago, the British singer was recently asked about collaborating with the group in a brief interview with The Shock Circuit.
She began by explaining how the collaboration came to be. That led her to reveal if she had maintained a friendship with the girls.
I love those girls. It was so much fun getting to work with them. It all happened because I met them in Seoul, when they came to my show.
I’d written this song called ‘Kiss And Make Up’, and I didn’t put it out because I felt like it needed the perfect feature.
After meeting the girls, I immediately sent it to them to see if they liked it. They liked the song, and they wanted to jump on it. And, I was so happy to hear that.
Since then, Dua Lipa mentioned that she still talks to all the members. There was one in particular that she was closest to, though. Jennie turned out to be the apple of her eye.
You know, I’ve remained in touch with the girls, especially Jennie, who I love to pieces.
Not only does Dua Lipa still have a good friendship with all of the members, but she’s also thankful for how supportive BLINKs have been to her.
It’s amazing. All the fans are so lovely, and I’m so thankful for all their support.
While some artists who collaborate don’t become friends, let alone meet to record, BLACKPINK and Dua Lipa’s friendship is still going strong. Maybe there will be another collaboration in the future?
