Update: April 22, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. ET: It’s confirmed! BLACKPINK is on Lady Gaga’s Chromatica track list. Target released the album artwork for Chromatica, Lady Gaga’s sixth album, on Tuesday, April 21. Along with the cover, the artwork also included the tracklist that will be included on the back of the album. Among Gaga’s collaborations is a song called “Sour Candy” with BLACKPINK. The collab will be the 10th track on Chromatica.
Other collaborations for Gaga include a song called “Rain on Me” with Ariana Grande, as well as “Sine From Above” with Elton John. The confirmation comes after an alleged Chromatica leaked in March that showed that Gaga will have a song called “Kindness Punks” with Lisa, Jennie, Rosé and Jisoo. That song has since been debunked. Gaga has yet to announce a new release date for Chromatica after she postponed her previous album release date due to the current coronavirus pandemic. Read more about the previous debunked leak below.
Original story: March 20, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. ET: BP x LG is everything we need at this time. BLACKPINK is on Lady Gaga’s Chromatica leaked track list, and our ears are ready. There have been rumors of a BLACKPINK and Lady Gaga collaboration since March 2 when the “Stupid Love” singer announced the title of her upcoming sixth album, and so-called “insiders” claimed on music forums that the K-pop band and the Grammy winner collaborated on a song.
BLINKS were also convinced that a BP x LG collab was on the way after Blood Pop, Gaga’s executive producer, followed each of the members (as well as the band’s account) on Instagram. BLACKPINK is also rumored to have a Netflix documentary released in the near future, which would time nice with a new song with Gaga.
Now for the track list: A leaked track list for Chromatica went around the internet this week, which revealed the titles for the album’s 16 songs. Among them is a song titled “Kindness Punks,” which features BLACKPINK. Now, no one from Gaga’s team has confirmed or denied the leak yet, so it’s best to take the track list with a grain of salt. But if it is true…we need “Kindness Punks” STAT!
As Arianators know, BLACKPINK isn’t the only rumored artist to be on Chromatica. Ariana Grande is also rumored to collaborate with Lady Gaga, and according to the leaked track list, those rumors are true. The track list reveals that Gaga and Ari have a song called “Rain on Me” on the album. But again, until Gaga confirms the leak herself, we can’t take this track list as fact.
As for BLACKPINK, the band’s company, YG Entertainment, responded to the rumors of an LG x BP collab on March 4 (a couple days after Chromatica was released) and didn’t confirm or deny the speculation. “At the moment, it’s difficult to confirm. We plan to give fans who’ve been waiting a long time good music and happy news,” YG Entertainment said in a statement.
Guess we’ll have to wait for Chromatica‘s release on April 10 to know for sure.
