SELPINK did THAT. BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez’s “Ice Cream” lyrics have one of Lisa’s best (and most meta) raps yet. For those who aren’t BLINKs, BLACKPINK and Gomez released their new song, “Ice Cream,” on Friday, August 28, along with a sugar-coated music video full of sprinkles, cherries and, of course, pink.

“Ice Cream” is Jennie, Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo‘s second single from their upcoming album, The Album, which will be released on October 2. The collaboration with Gomez follows BLACKPINK’s first single, “How You Like That,” in June: After weeks of teasers, BLACKPINK announced Gomez as the mystery collaboration on the track in August. Before the announcement, fans theorized that the mystery collaboration was Ariana Grande, who was seen liking a teaser Jennie posted for “Ice Cream” on Instagram. Grande, instead, was a songwriter for the track, along with Victoria Monet and Bekuh BOOM, who’s also written other BLACKPINK songs, such as “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du,” “Kill This Love,” “Boombayah” and “Whistle.” Other songwriters include Teddy, Tommy Brown, 24 and Mr. Frank, all of whom are also credited as producers on the track.

In terms of lyrics, the verses are sweet and filled with sexual innuendos. “Come a little closer ’cause you lookin’ thirsty I’ma make it better. Sip it like a Slurpee,” Gomez sings in the song. Compared to BLACKPINK’s previous singles, most of the song is also in English. The only Korean lines are during Lisa’s rap toward the end of the song. The rap is also one of the highlights of “Ice Cream,” where Lisa refers to herself in a line about the Mona Lisa. “Think you fly, boy, where your visa? / Mona Lisa kinda Lisa / Needs an ice cream man that treats her (Hey),” she raps.

In honor of the release of “Ice Cream,” Gomez also created an ice cream flavor with Serendipity and Serendipity 3 restaurants, which she’s also a new investor in. The flavor, named Cookies & Cream Remix, consists of pink vanilla ice cream, crunchy cookie bits and chocolate fudge. The flavor is available at retailers across the U.S. and on SerendipityBrands.com. Along with the flavor, Gomez also took to her Instagram Reels on Thursday, August 27, to share a video of her sundae recipe featuring her Cookies & Cream Remix flavor. The recipe also celebrated the final episodes of her HBO Max cooking show, Selena + Chef. Pints of the flavor was also featured in the “Ice Cream” music video.

“To celebrate the final episodes of Selena + Chef Season 1 on @hbomax and the release of ICE CREAM, I made a little extra recipe… @serendipity3nyc @serendipitybrands Sundae! 🍨,” she wrote in the caption.
