Lady Gaga and BLACKPINK have debuted the official lyric video for their collab, “Sour Candy.”
“I called Blackpink first to suggest working together,” Gaga says. “The Blackpink members were happy and showed enthusiasm for the project, so we were able to collaborate thanks to that. I wanted to support powerful women such as Blackpink, and they felt the same.” She added, “I got excited while hearing them interpret the song in Korean. I told them that their part is very creative and fun. Blackpink are beautiful young women, and they’re very talented. Through this collaboration, I felt proud as if I’d become Blackpink’s fifth member.”
The lyric video shows Gaga and Blackpink members Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo and Rosé as players in a video game, while each woman has their own personalized virtual reality avatar. Lyrics, in both English and Korean, show up inside their chat boxes as the “game” progresses.
The song appears on Gaga’s Chromatica album, which gave the singer her sixth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
